Even though we still have to wait months for Wild Rift‘s release, footage of test runs and chatty developers feed us leaks every week. While we still digest the announcement of Teamfight Tactics coming before May 31st, we already got more Wild Rift news featuring information about esports and Champs.
Phone specs for Wild Rift
While we actually already got some information about the phone requirements in the official FAQ, Hideo confirmed that the specs will be set rather low in order to make the game playable on the majority of devices; you’ll definitely face no issues with devices with comparable specs to iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy A7.
While Wild Rift developer Feralpony already revealed lots of information about Champions, Hideo gave us some awesome details to be excited about:
Although Riot won’t port all League characters to the mobile version, we’ll get the majority of them. Even those with highly complex kits such as Yasuo or Vayne won’t be missing! In fact, we’ll even get exclusive Champions that will only be available on mobile; and that’s just fair, considering we won’t enjoy the whole League of Legends line-up either.
Hideo also stated that many characters get specific adjustments to improve the gameplay experience for twin-stick controls. Ashe for example, who has an ultimate coded as linear skillshot, will see some adjustments. This way players can control her arrow during its flight rather than just choosing a direction.
Wild Rift Esports?!
Despite LoL’s huge success, esports scene for Wild Rift lies in the future. Whether we’ll see a similar esports hype largely relies on the playerbase; considering how thrilled everyone is months before the potential release, this shouldn’t remain an obstacle for very long. Several esports teams also seem to prepare for Wild Rift esports already and are picking up players.
