Legends of Runeterra players might be wondering when the Awakening expansion will be releasing. Awakening is scheduled to release on Aug. 31, 2022.

Originally releasing in April 2020, Legends of Runeterra has remained a successful digital card game alongside Hearthstone for the past two years. The game is free-to-play and features League of Legends champions, as well as other elements of League of Legends, on its cards. Since launch, Riot Games have been updating the card pool as to keep players coming back. New cards are largely introduced through expansions such as the upcoming Awakening expansion. New cards such as Jax and Ornn have already been confirmed.

Legend of Runeterra Awakening Release Date

The Awakening expansion for Legends of Runeterra will be released on Aug. 31. The release will be on a Wednesday, which aligns with Riot Games regularly scheduling updates to League of Legends and TFT on that same day of the week. With the release only a few days away now, it is highly unlikely that the date would be pushed any further.

Legends of Runeterra is still working at becoming a more widely known title, especially in comparison to the rest of the Riot Games lineup. Despite being playable on PC and mobile, it generally holds the lowest viewership on Twitch, and it has a relatively small esports scene. Riot Games will be hoping that the new expansion brings new players in while still retaining their loyal player base.
