A couple of months ago, game developer Riot Games announced that the biggest multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, League of Legends, is arriving on consoles and on mobile.
Officially titled League of Legends: Wild Rift, it’s poised to go head-to-head with the immensely popular mobile MOBA game, Mobile Legends.
Since the announcement, there hasn’t been much news on its development or release but the game’s official Twitter account recently posted a photo detailing that limited alpha testing of the mobile version will arrive next month and that the Philippines and Brazil will be the first countries to have access to it.
Hey everyone, Wild Rift team here. We hope everyone is staying safe and well.
A few quick updates on our Google Play Store page. We’re seeing reports of a few confusing experiences which we’re hoping we can clear up. Here goes: pic.twitter.com/yKlfApOT47

Additionally, the same Tweet also detailed the minimum requirements a device needs to run the game. At launch, devices will need at least a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, Adreno 306 GPU, and at least 1.5GB of RAM. iOS players will need to run the game on an iPhone 6 or higher for better performance. Do take note, though, that these are not set in stone and can still change once the game officially launches. Developers are aiming to make the game available to as many devices as they can meaning they can still change the requirements to fit a wider range of devices.
The same tweet also addresses the reports of some players finding a “testing link” that was found on the Google Play Store. Users who went through and installed the game through this link ended up with an error page. The developers took the blame for that saying they accidentally activated a non-existent Early Access test. Users must pre-register for the game again if they want to be informed on the release day.
Riot has not yet stated when exactly the official release of League of Legends: Wild Rift will be but more announcements are expected by the end of May. Pre-registration is already open.
