League of Legends Wild Rift is Riot Game's attempt to create a League of Legends experience for console and mobile players.

Michael “Riot Paladin” Chow has clarified that the game is not a direct port of the PC version of League of Legends, and that Wild Rift has been rebuilt from scratch for the new platforms so that the game is a new experience, while still remaining true to the League of Legends experience.

The video announcement featuring Riot Paladin mainly focuses on how Wild Rift will create a League of Legends experience that fits both console and mobile players that want to get a taste of what they were missing all this time.

Departing from League of Legend's lengthy matches, a single match for Wild Rift is estimated to only be around 15-20 minutes long and the team behind Wild Rift has created a new map for players to explore that differs from the one in League of Legends on PC. A double-stick control system has also been introduced to make controlling the game as intuitive and comfortable as navigating the game on PC.

Not much else has been revealed other than that the game will not feature the same character line-up as the PC version and that many visuals have seen an overhaul.

Closed alpha and beta tests of the game will be rolled out periodically throughout 2020 with a full release expected to be later in the year. The title will likely be cross-platform, though that is not confirmed.
