  • Riot's dev diary reveals more gameplay footage and other details about Wild Rift.

Months after Riot announced Wild Rift for Mobile and Console, an edition of dev diary shows off some more details about the 36 champ roster and a slice of the different gameplay adjustments done to champions like Nasus, Twisted Fate and Shyvanna. 

Different Gameplay, Same League Feel

There is currently a selection of a limited number of Summoner Spells as well as Runes which have been modified for shorter games. 

There will be 8 keystone runes to choose from including Electrocute, Aery, Conqueror, Fleet Footwork, Grasp Of The Undying, Aftershock, Font of Life, and Kleptomancy. Along with the keystone runes, players will get a selection of 3 minor runes to compliment your keystone rune. A few new minor runes have been added which are unique to Wild Rift like Sweet Tooth and Pack Hunter. 

There are also a few changes in the jungle, like the addition of the Evolved Blue Sentinel for more late-game regen and Evolved Red Brambleback which gives a damage buff.

Another major change is the Nexus now acting like a turret, dealing damage to enemies in its range. For further information check out the dev diary below.

How to Unlock Champions, Skins, Other Cosmetics

Wild Rift will follow the same model as League where you can earn in-game currency to unlock champions. They have also retained the customisable profiles, and possibly in-game emotes. Champion skins like Battle Boss Blitzcrank, Secret Agent Xin Zhao, and Arclight Vayne will be making an appearance from the original game with new skins for Ahri and possibly Garen.
