Riot Games has announced a new "cross-game, cross-platform" event in celebration of its latest title, Arcane, going live on Nov. 6.

Players were greeted to news of this massive event through a tweet published on the verified League of Legends Twitter account on Monday, Nov. 1. According to the accompanying video, RiotX Arcane will feature rewards across all Riot Games and is meant to connect players from all around the world. Riot has mentioned its playerbase multiple times, explaining the party is as much about them as it is about Arcane's launch.

RiotX Arcane "Cross-World" Celebration Details Explained

RiotX Arcane is broken into three distinct parts with each spanning its own consecutive length of time.

The first is the "League World Finals and Arcane Premiere Super Weekend" on Nov. 6. Players can join the Worlds broadcast, the franchise's "biggest moment of the year." It will start with an Arcane-themed opener—presented by Mastercard—featuring music from the game, itself, and performances by Imagine Dragons, Bea Miller, JID, and Denzel Curry.

The second part, "Progress Days" will run from Nov. 7-13. Riot describes it as a time when players are invited to jump into their favorite games and enjoy the RiotX Arcane content. Participating games include League of Legends, Wild Rift, Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and Valorant. Players can earn unique cosmetics, specifically formatted in-game events, new modes, and more.

Part three, "Undercity Nights" offers an in-person and online event that centers on "a deep-dive into Zaun and a celebration of our community." More information is set to be released as this section draws closer. It will run from Nov. 14-20.
