▍About Ruined King: A League of Legends Story
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is a single-player, turn-based RPG developed by Airship Syndicate, the studio behind Darksiders: Genesis. Featuring the art style of legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira, creators of Battle Chasers and Darksiders, it is the first Riot Forge game that invites you to explore the League of Legends universe.
Players will be assembling a party with the similar faces of the League of Legends franchise, including the Champions Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Pyke, Ahri and Yasuo. Control the champions to explore the bustling city of Bilgewater and the mysterious Shadow Isles, and experience the Lane Initiative System, which allows you to choose approaches for each enemy encounter and change the course of the battle by tweaking the speed of your actions.
