Riot Games released a trailer Saturday for Ruined King, the first single-player spinoff in League of Legends history, revealing it will arrive in early 2021.

Ruined King will star Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri and Pyke in a turn-based RPG. The team, shown assembling in a tavern in the trailer, will go up against the mysterious Ruined King.

Ruined King will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam and The Epic Games Store. A next-gen version on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will arrive "soon thereafter," per Riot Games, and PS4 and Xbox One owners will be able to upgrade for free.

Riot Games first announced Ruined King in December 2019 as one of multiple titles in production at Riot Forge, the company's publishing and League of Legends-licensing arm. Darksiders: Genesis developer Airship Syndicate is developing Ruined King, while Double Stallion Games is at work on Conv/rgence, another Riot Forge game. Conv/rgence has yet to receive a release date.
