Riot’s Arcane Series Scheduled to Hit Netflix on November 6!
Riot’s long-awaited Arcane series finally has a release date for Netflix: November 6! At long last, we have a date to look forward to! And, well, if you don’t happen to have a Netflix subscription, you have a few weeks to rectify that mistake and board the hype train with the rest of us! Needless to say, millions of gamers from across the globe have been eagerly awaiting this oh-so-fascinating animated series and, well, there’s a good reason why: anything Riot touches turns to gold. They’ve yet to fumble, which speaks volumes about their dedication and the many exceptional individuals working under its banner. The first official trailer does an incredible job at setting the stage for what’s to come and has made one thing perfectly clear: we could be in for a bona fide masterpiece! And that holds true even if you’re not all that partial to the League of Legends world and its many peculiar characters.
“From the creators of League of Legends comes a new animated series, Arcane. Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart,” as per the official announcement.
An Important Date
The release of Arcane on Netflix will also coincide with the 2021 World Championship finals which is far from a coincidence, of course. It’ll truly be a date to remember, especially if things pan out the way we expect them to!
“Players all over the world love League and its universe. Their passion is what inspires us to create expressions of Runeterra worthy of their fandom. The launch of Arcane is the beginning of the next chapter for Riot and we can’t wait for players to see what we have in store for them across games, entertainment, and sports,” said Riot’s CEO Nicolo Laurent.
Interestingly enough, however, Arcane will be released in three separate acts. The first one will hit Netflix on November 6, with the second and third being released on November 13 and November 20, respectively. It’s a strange decision, but it probably makes sense in terms of structure and pacing.
In any case, if it serves the story and will help flesh everything out in more detail, then we’re definitely not complaining!
