While Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is a turn-based RPG, The Mageseeker will be a lot more dynamic. Gameplay-wise it's best compared to earlier The Legend of Zelda games or Hades, as you will be exploring linear levels all around the Kingdom of Demacia while fending off countless enemies that prey on Sylas.

Even in terms of design, it reminds us a bit of the Zelda games. You'll control Sylas from the top-down perspective, and his adventure is brought to life in a colorful pixel style.

The Mageseeker: Story Overview

The story behind The Mageseeker might already familiar to those of you that enjoy diving into the vast lore that is surrounding League of Legends. It's revolving all around Sylas, who is also know as The Unshackled.

Sylas hails from Demacia, a Runeterran kingdom that rejects everything that has to do with magic and magical abilities. He is one of the few Demacians that is able to sense magic, which is why he was recruited to be a Mageseeker.

The Mageseekers are a powerful Demacian organization that track down magic users inside the kingdom and do everything in their power to control everything magical inside Demacia. Sylas was prosecuted by the Mageseekers after he caused a tragic incident, which led to him being imprisoned for years.
