So, over a year ago we found out about the upcoming turn-based RPG from Airship Syndicate and Riot Forge. We saw gameplay, got a trailer and even had spoilers this summer thanks to the Sentinels and Ruination event.

The game will take place in Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles during the event. Unfortunately, the game was not released this summer. There was complete and utter radio silence from both Airship Syndicate and Riot Forge.

That was until recently.

[Update] Ruined King: A League of Legends Story released!

Well, that's how fast things move these days: Few hours ago we discussed wether we will soon have any information on the release date of Ruined King: A League of Legends Story or not. And all of a sudden, Riot Forge just releases the game during an event. That's one way to do it... I guess. In any case, the adventure RPG is now available on all platforms. So what are you waiting for? Go on and have yourself an awesome adventure!

Release Date Coming Soon

Recently, Riot Forge tweeted out that Pyke had stolen their password. So, there was an ‘obvious’ reason why there was months-long radio silence from the distributor, but finally, we have more news.

Riot Forge will release a rhythm runner featuring Ziggs in Piltover, not the game we were expecting, but one we’re excited for nonetheless. But that still doesn’t answer the question we’re burning to know the answer to: When will we finally get Ruined King: A League of Legends Story?

Well, my friends, this could be revealed quite soon.

Free Champion Rotation

This week, the free champion rotation will include – once again – all characters from Arcane. Vi, Caitlyn, Jayce and Jinx along with other characters are playable for free in League of Legends. But the list this week is much, much longer.

Braum, Illaoi, Pyke, Miss Fortune, Ahri and Yasuo are also free to play. Is this a coincidence that this week these champions are also free to play? No. This could be a giant hint that we’re going to have the release of this much-anticipated game much sooner than we thought after that ‘Pyke stole the password’ tweet.

Also, Ziggs is another champion who is free to play and as we mentioned his own Riot Forge game is releasing as well.

When Will Ruined King: A League of Legends Story Release?

An exact date isn’t known, but Riot Forge did tweet out that more information will be given regarding their games at the Riot Forge Showcase with Nintendo Switch. So, tune in at 8 AM Pacific Time – or 17:00 CET – on November 16, 2021.

Then we will find out the exact release date of Ruined King: A League of Legends Story and probably many other game plans Riot Forge has to offer.
