Video games are predictably saturated, even by the standards of a market that’s been around for decades. It’s no wonder developers have to come up with inventive ways to create new franchises or spinoffs in order to attract player attention and generate revenue.
Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, has hinted at a new game in their popular Runeterra series. The game is called “Legends of Runeterra’s Path of Champions” and it will be a MOBA game with a twist.
This week, Riot Games continues its barrage of announcements and revelations. First, the company’s Riot Forge branch unveiled Hextech Mayhem, a “fast-paced rhythm runner” inspired by League of Legends. We won’t mention it again since it’s clearly not an MMO or even multiplayer, although it does star League’s Ziggs as the main character. Antagonist. Both, in fact. With Ziggs, it’s difficult to tell. It’s now available for pre-order on Steam for ten dollars.
Meanwhile, the studio is promoting Legends of Runeterra’s Path of Champions, which will premiere tomorrow and is basically a PvE option for the game.
“The Path of Champions is Legends of Runeterra’s fresh new PvE adventure mode, which will be released on November 10 at 10 a.m. PT with patch 2.19.0. As one of your favorite champions, travel around Runeterra, conquering unusual encounters, earning and equipping powerful Relics, recruiting friends, and upgrading your champion like never before to take on new challenges. A unique set of adventures is available in Piltover and Zaun to commemorate Riot x Arcane, containing fully spoken and animated comics, as well as branching narrative options to lend storyful depth and flair to the territories’ inhabitants.”
Following a 2018 exposé of the company’s “bro culture,” which included sexual discrimination and harassment, Riot Games has become a divisive figure in the gaming industry. Several developers and high-ranking officials were implicated in the incident, which resulted in a developer labor dispute and walk-out. Former employees and the state of California have filed lawsuits alleging that Riot is refusing to comply with the inquiry.
