'Ruined King' is Riot's RPG based on 'League of Legends'

Thresh has a subtle, starring role in the game's first trailer.

Riot announced its new publishing arm for new League of Legends-related games, Riot Forge, just last week, and tonight at The Game Awards it revealed the first title to spawn from this business: Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. It's a narrative-driven, turn-based role-playing game developed by Darksiders: Genesis studio Airship Syndicate, featuring "fan-favorite champions" and locations from League of Legends.

In Ruined King, players will be able to explore the city of Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles. Other than that, Riot Forge is keeping details scarce. Ruined King is in development for consoles and PC, with no concrete release window in sight.

Riot Forge also revealed Conv/rgence, a single-player adventure game starring Ekko, a character who manipulates time. It's heading to PCs and consoles, from Speed Brawl studio Double Stallion Games.
