What is the League of Legends: Wild rift?
Developed and published by Riot Games for Android and iOS, League of Legends: WildRift is a multiplayer online battle arena mobile game. It is a modified version of the PC game League of Legends.
The game is similar to League of Legends, in which players control a character (“champion”) with unique skills and battle against a team of players or AI-controlled units to destroy the enemy’s “Nexus”. Each League of Legends: Wild Rift match is discrete. All champions begin with relatively weak abilities, but as they gain experience and items, they become stronger. There are influences from high fantasy, steampunk, and Lovecraftian horror among the champions.
