Teamfight Tactics Mobile Launches on March 19
League of Legends developer Riot Games has officially revealed the launch date for the highly anticipated mobile version of Teamfight Tactics as this Thursday, March 19th, on the App Store and Google Play.
TFT Mobile and Set 3 Release Date
The mobile version, Riot’s first released foray into mobile gaming, will feature all the auto battler fun players have come to know and love on the PC version of the game, including new content with Set 3, TFT Galaxies launching the same day.
This new content includes new Galaxies-themed Little Legends, new theme Arenas, a new personalized damage animation called Booms!, a new player tutorial, and the Galaxies Pass and Pass+, TFT’s version of the Battle Pass found in many other games.
“Since launching TFT on PC just last year, we’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible response from players,” said TFT Product Lead Dax Andrus. “Players have been asking us for more ways to play TFT, and we’re excited to share a mobile version that feels authentic to the PC experience while also keeping in mind the nuances and optimization features that mobile players love.”
The release date of the mobile version comes as TFT surpassed 80 million players worldwide. It’s a monumental achievement for a game launched just one year ago, and especially impressive for the new auto battler genre that started with the Auto Chess mod for Dota2. Since its inception, dozens of companies have tried to create their take on the popular game, with TFT being Riot’s answer to it featuring League of Legends characters.
Eight players can battle it out in a free-for-all battle as they attempt to combine grab and combine champions from the highly popular MOBA with items to create their formations and compositions as they battle the other seven players for victory.
We got our hands on the new Set 3 on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) two weeks ago. We can’t wait to see all the different compositions and strategies that emerge with Set 3’s launch this Thursday, especially with mobile players.
We’ll be bringing you a composition guide to get you started later this week, so stay tuned!
