Riot Forge, the team working on new games set in the League of Legends universe, announced that it has two new games in the pipeline. The first is the turn-based RPG Ruined King: A League of Legends Story while the second is the action platformer CONV/RGENCE: A League of Legends Story.

Ruined King

The first game is made possible in partnership with Airship Syndicate. The game is set after the events of Burning Tides and gives players that chance to explore the bustling city of Bilgewater as well as the mysterious Shadow Isles. Bilgewater is home to champions such as Gangplank, Miss Fortune, and Graves. The Shadow Isles, meanwhile, is home to Kalista, Threst, Mordekaiser, and Karthus, among others. The game should release on both consoles and PC, with Riot Forge saying that more updates are coming in 2020.


CONV/RGENCE is being developed with Double Stallion Games and focuses on Ekko. Known as the "Boy Who Shattered Time," Ekko is a champion that manipulates time and uses his Z-Drive to twist any situation to his advantage. In addition to featuring Ekko, the game also gives a new take on his region of Zaun. This one is also being made for both PC and consoles.

For those not familiar, Riot Forge serves as a separate label within Riot Games. Instead of developing games, Riot Forge instead focuses on publishing games from third-party game studios. The games will give a new look into the League of Legends universe and should give players a deep dive into Runeterra's different regions along with allowing them to be able to connect with the champions and characters who live there.

According to a statement published by Riot Forge earlier this month, the games to be released are mainly catered for those who want to know more about the universe, but aren't interested in MOBA experiences. Riot Forge believes that by "partnering with existing developers who already have the expertise, talent and pipelines in place means we can bring high-quality games to you much more quickly and in a variety of ways." In addition, the core narratives that accompany the games are going to be considered as canon in the League of Legends universe, so it’s also a treat for long time fans.
