A new ad for League of Legends’ mobile version, Wild Rift, recently surfaced on YouTube featuring some of League of Legends best players Faker, Teddy, and CloudTemplar, the legend jungler-turned-caster.The mobile game, LOL Wild Rift has been in a closed beta since September, restricted only to the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. The LOL Wild Rift closed beta expanded to include South Korea and Japan earlier this month. The game has stirred interest in the Indian community as teams are already forming around the game as the biggest organisation have started picking up PC MOBA players for their games.
The one-minute League of Legends ad featured Faker driving a bus with Wild Rift displayed on it. LOL Faker greeted passengers with a word-play, asking if they “want to get on the bus?” which is slang in Korea for getting carried.
Later on as passengers boarded, the device at the entrance scanned their rank in the game. While some passed with ranks like Iron, Silver, and Gold, one passenger caught Faker and Teddy’s attention while scanning his device. It kept saying “Challenger, Challenger, Challenger” with the camera revealing the legendary jungler CloudTemplar himself.
South Korea is one of the lucky regions to be getting the mobile port of League early on, giving them a headstart in learning the game compared to fans from Europe or North America. SEA may also see getting the mobile game earlier than NA and maybe Europe.
The game will be available on both iOS and Android devices once the beta opens. Wild Rift requires a device with a 4-core, 1.5Ghz CPU, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 1280×720 resolution.
