League of Legends Riot Games League of Legends

In celebration of League of Legends' 10th year anniversary, Riot Games revealed several projects that the company has long been working on, including Legends of Runeterra, a competitive collectible card game set in the League universe. Each player uses one card each until the attacker decides to commit his characters to an attack and trigger the battle phase. Legends of Runeterra offers a unique CCG experience in a crowded market, and toes the line well between the ever-present RNG of card draw and giving players agency to control their destiny.

Legends of Runeterra is a brand new digital card game based on the League of Legends universe, and from our time with it during PAX Aus 2019, it actually feels like it has some interesting new takes on the genre. Champions and other cards are associated with six of the major regions of Runeterra (Demacia, Noxus, Ionia, Piltover & Zaun, Freljord, and the Shadow Isles), which represent the idea of classes or colours, in other card games. Mana allows you to play things like creature and champion cards, which have the typical attack and defense stats as well as other abilities or buffs which decide how they'll fair in battle. You can choose to use one champion to build your decks around or add more--which is limited depending on the game style--and the idea is to create a synergistic playstyle. Having both of these cards in the same deck would allow you to level them up and gain their heightened abilities at the same time, without wasting any resources. Fresh stories will also play out through Legends of Runeterra with plans to introduce new characters and champions as the game builds, which will also allow for new cards and playstyles. Legends of Runeterra all plays quite well, and as someone who's quite familiar with different digital card games, I was able to pick it up quickly after a few rounds in the tutorial. Legends of Runeterra is still a free-to-play game, however, and though you can't spend your hard-earned real money on random cards, you can instead pay a set price for "wild cards." These differ in cost based on rarity, but are a straight swap for whichever card you want in that tier. But the ability to pick and choose what you want to do to unlock cards was emphasised as a way to give players at least some agency over how they play the game. You'll also be able to use real money on cosmetics, and Legends of Runeterra is an intensely visual game. When champion cards level up, they'll take over the whole screen to play an animation and even attacking seems a bit more extra than most other digital card games. The general synopsis seems bent against the level of randomness that can often be present in card games, so Legends of Runeterra could be quite competitive in a very different way to what we're used to seeing in the genre.
