In Riot's first rhythm runner game, Ziggs and Heimerdinger will star. After the recent premiere of Riot Games' newest animated series, Arcane, League of Legends fans are still reeling. People were unaware, however, that much more shocking news was on the way.
Hextech Mayhem, a new rhythm runner from Riot Forge, has been released. Hextech Mayhem was made by Choice Provisions, who also created the BIT.TRIP video game series. It includes Runeterra's favorite bomb-blasting yordle, Ziggs, and his supercharged antics.
Players must perform a series of jumps and attacks while staying on beat to avoid obstacles, utilize the boom on foes, and light fuses to obtain the most explosive results throughout the game. The gameplay resembles that of other rhythm running games such as Choice's own BIT.TRIP Runner and, to a lesser extent, Geometry Dash.
Players will also be avoiding Heimerdinger, who dares to put an end to Ziggs' explosion binge and prevent the lunacy from spreading across Piltover. The Hexplosives Expert's ultimate goal is to create the most powerful bomb the world has ever seen.
For Tuesday, November 16, Hextech Mayhem will be released on Nintendo Switch, PC, GOG.com, and the Epic Games Store. It will be available on Netflix's in-app gaming service in the near future.
Fans who pre-order the game will receive a free Ruined Ziggs skin to use while destroying the city of Progress. Through the Netflix mobile app, anyone with a Netflix membership will be able to play this game for free.
Riot Forge, Riot Games' new studio, hasn't been heard from in a while. In fact, they haven't posted on social media in almost a year. However, the corporation has now come out of its shell and provided an update to the fans who have been patiently waiting for new games.
Riot Forge explained its long absence in a recent tweet, claiming that "Pyke took the password." Following that, the team gave optimism to League of Legends fans who are still waiting for the Ruined King role-playing game by stating that additional information on the title will be released in the following weeks.
After Riot dropped a teaser trailer for the game at the 2020 World Championship, the Ruined King RPG was planned to arrive in early 2021. However, due to "a number of problems" that made things difficult for the developers, the official release date was eventually pushed back. However, a leaked Nvidia game list suggests that Ruined King will eventually be released on Tuesday, November 16. Since this title was scheduled to correspond with the major Sentinels of Light event earlier this year, fans have been waiting far too long.
The Ruined King RPG was planned to chronicle the story of a motley crew of champions as they combat Viego and the forces of evil alongside one of Riot's first cross-title events. It would have been the ideal opportunity to abandon the game, as the event's buzz would have attracted a large number of players.
Despite the fact that it will be released later than intended, fans of RPGs and League will likely pick up the game to see whether Riot was able to make good use of the extra time—and to see if the wait was worthwhile.
