Riot Games has set a release window for the online multiplayer session-based game League of Legends: Clash of Fates. Riot's genre-defining upcoming title League of Legends: Clash of Fates will be available in September for Windows PC via download at www.leagueoflegends.com and at retail outlets nationwide through Riot's retail campaign partner THQ Inc. GOA will publish the game in Europe simultaneously.
"League of Legends will bring gamers competitive battle arena-style gameplay that builds upon and expands on innovative gameplay concepts that were pioneered in DotA-Allstars, one of the most popular mods of all time," Brandon Beck, co-founder and CEO, Riot Games, said. "With a strong community following itching to jump right into the fray, we're looking forward to providing gamers with epic combat and dramatic, strategic battles for years to come."
Added Wim Stocks, senior vice president of strategic partnerships for THQ, League of Legends' retail campaign partner, "We are excited to work with the high caliber team at Riot Games on such an innovative and genre bending experience as League of Legends."
League of Legends combines elements of role-playing and strategy genres with addictive battle action that brings accessible, replayable, competitive gameplay into a whimsical universe that deepens with the player's commitment. During each online multiplayer play session, gamers will choose one of dozens of unique Champions wielding diverse skills and abilities, and engage in fast-paced team-oriented combat to bring their foes to ruin. Champions will gain levels, items and abilities that enable them to slay their opponents and augment the strength of their allies by battling with enemy minions, foul beasts, deadly turrets and enemy Champions. Players also advance their Summoner's rank and power to gain new abilities and items, assisting their Champions in battle. League of Legends will be constantly evolving and updated with new features, Champions, maps and additional content as suggested by the community.
The League of Legends development team is made up of seasoned industry professionals with credits that include PC & console blockbusters, as well as part of the team that created the popular Warcraft 3 mod DotA-Allstars.
