August 28, 2019 Footage of a mobile version of League of Legends appears to have leaked.
Rumours of Tencent’s attempts to bring League of Legends to mobile have been doing the rounds for a couple of months, but it now seems as though those efforts are hotting up. A leaked video uploaded earlier this week seems to suggest that a mobile version might not be all that far away.
The video (which you can check out further down this article, via Dot Esports) is in Chinese, but a translation of its title reads “League of Legends mobile game test version outflow. The video includes footage of champion and rune selection, the loading screen, and the start of a game, with fully-enabled touch controls, courtesy of a revamped UI.
There’s no question that the game in the footage is League of Legends. The graphics are an exact match, and characters including Blitzcrank and Ezreal. The only noticeable change is that nexus towers and inhibitors appear to be missing from the blue side base, presumably in an attempt to limit the potential for drawn-out sieges and reduce overall game time.
does league of legends have a mobile version?
There’s no word on a mobile port for League of Legends just yet, but multiple sources suggest it might now be too far away.
Both Riot and Tencent are yet to make any official announcement regarding a mobile version of the acclaimed MOBA, although a Reuters report earlier this year suggested a port was in the works.
More recently, Tencent unveiled a new streaming app allowing you to play League of Legends on mobile. Designed to work alongside the company’s WeGame platform, the app will allow players to broadcast games directly from their PC to their phone, but only if they’re on the same wifi network.
The Chinese publisher has plenty of experience with mobile gaming, thanks in no small part to Arena of Valor. The MOBA, which bears some similarity to League of Legends, released for iOS and Android in 2016.
