There aren’t many League of Legends experiences available on the PlayStation or Microsoft Store, but a lot has changed this week.

That’s because Riot Games has released one of the first games from the famed PC franchise on consoles for the first time.

And while it’s not a League of Legends version – Wild Rift is still expected to jump to consoles in the future – it does share the same universe.

Ruined King is a turn-based single-player RPG developed by Airship Syndicate, the makers of Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Darksiders Genesis.

And Riot Games surprised everyone by making it available this week on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC; via Steam, GOG.com and the Epic Games Store.

Ruined King was announced by Riot some time ago and launched stealth across various digital platforms.

And the good news is that the game will be available soon on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S when a new update is released.

Existing PS4 or Xbox One owners can upgrade their version for free, and the current version will remain compatible with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

For anyone interested in the setting, the official game description explains: “The story is set in two regions of Runeterra, Bilgewater, a bustling port city home to sea monster hunters, harbor gangs and smugglers from all over the known world; and the Shadow Isles, a land cursed by the deadly Black Mist that envelops the island and corrupts those it comes in contact with.

To defeat a common and mysterious foe, players form an unlikely company of beloved League of Legends champions – Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri and Pyke.

“The core story will be canon, but the game will also feature different expressions of the IP, such as cool characters or moments specific only to the stories told in that game.”

And while Ruined King is one of the first League of Legends games to arrive on PS4 and Xbox consoles, it won’t be the last.

Riot Forge also revealed new details about several upcoming releases, including Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story, which will be available in 2022.

This will be a single-player adventure game released on Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PC, featuring champions Nunu and Willump on an epic journey to find Nunu’s long-lost mother.
