League of Legends Wild Rift Beta Test to Begin Next Month
Riot sure does move fast. Ever since their celebratory slew of announcements last October, it feels like they’ve been releasing games left and right. Legends of Runeterra, mobile Teamfight Tactics, and Valorant have all released over the last six months and all three of them have found an immense amount of success. That leaves us with Wild Rift — the mobile-friendly version of League of Legends that’s officially entering a limited beta test next month!
What You Can Expect
The unfortunate news is that, as mentioned, it’ll be severely limited in scope. Players from Brazil and the Philippines will be the only ones who’ll get the chance to test things out, but even if you’re from a different region there’s still a region to celebrate. We’ll finally have some actual in-game footage to analyze and talk about!
Riot also slightly updated the minimum phone requirements. If you have an Android device, you’ll need a Snapdragon 410 CPU, Adreno 306 GPU, and 1.5 GB of RAM. If, on the other hand, you have an iPhone, it’ll have to be an iPhone 6 at least. Riot did some insane optimization as we’re talking about a six-year-old phone here!
Again, these are just the minimum requirements. If you have a phone that meets these specs you can play the game but the overall experience probably won’t be that smooth. Your phone could also reach uncomfortable temperatures after a while, but that’s mostly on a case-by-case basis. Either way, if you’ve purchased a mobile phone in the last three or so years, you’ll be set!
Now all that’s left is to wait. There are so many burning questions right now — will the game succeed? Will fans be satisfied with the mobile variant of their favorite MOBA? Did Riot make the necessary changes? Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
