The official release date for the upcoming League of Legends: Wild Rift beta in North America is going to be March 29, as revealed in the latest trailer. Riot Games first announced the upcoming mobile version of their popular MOBA back in 2019. It’s built on a smaller scale than the original version and currently has about 60 champions to choose from. The PC version currently has more than 150 champions.
Delays due to the pandemic did happen, and the first regional beta for Wild Rift began in Southeast Asia on October 27. The betas expanded to other regions in the months that followed, like Malaysia, Indonesia, the UAE, and Japan. But LOL fans in North America was upset as it would not reach their region untile 2021, but the rollout is familiar with Riot, who released modes and extra content in this pattern previously.
In the new trailer uploaded on the official Wild Rift page, it showed that the game is finally ready to release on March 29, 2021 in the Americas. The video showed famous landmarks and locales from various North and South American states as well. Registration is now available on Google Play, the Samsung Store and the App Store.
Riot’s third mobile venture
Riot Games had previously released Teamfight Tactics and Legends of Runeterra on mobile platforms, and both games have found success. Wild Rift can however top the number of downloads within the first week or month, especially when it became the most downloaded app in every location where the regional open beta was released.
Depending on Wild Rift‘s overall success, we can even start expecting a future mobile version of Valorant.
