League of Legends Wild Rift is undergoing an extensive Alpha test. With players having access to the game in the Philippines and Brazil, questions arise in the community about what type of monetization will be in the LoL mobile game.
Wild Rift when?
League of Legends Wild Rift is currently in its Alpha stage up until June 27 for the Philippines and Brazil only. If you need an extensive guide on the Alpha, we've got just the video for you!
Once the regional Alpha has finished, the Beta will begin, which you can expect multiple regions/countries to join in on the League of Legends Wild Rift fun! We're always covering things, Wild Rift, so be sure to check back with EarlyGame regularly for these updates!
Wild Rift APK
An important note to stress here is that using an APK for League of Legends Wild Rift or a League of Legends Wild Rift APK mirror can and will result in a ban. In a statement from Riot Games, players found means of accessing the game and had their accounts disabled for the time being.
Will there be microtransactions?
While League of Legends Wild Rift will be free-to-play, it should come to no surprise that there are exceptions to this rule. Wild Rift's big brother, League of Legends, has also been free-to-play. The big thing here is that League of Legends makes its money from skins and other microtransactions. You can expect the same here in League of Legends Wild Rift. Microtransactions will be coming to the LoL Wild Rift.

You can expect a store or shop, much like League of Legends, to be within the mobile app itself. You can expect purchases of mobile-only exclusive skins to draw in users not only from different markets but the core League of Legends itself. We should remind you all that Microtransactions of all kinds within video games are harming. You should use extreme caution when deciding to purchase in-game items, lootboxes, or any form of cosmetic items. These hold no real-world value, only bragging rights to friends and players alike.
