Riot Games has many plans to expand further into the League of Legends lore and let their fans truly experience the world of Runeterra in many different ways. One of those is the upcoming game Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.

The game was announced last December as a collaboration between Riot Forge and Airship Syndicate. It was teased in a 1-minute video showing off the creepy world of the Shadow Isles and multiple ghosts which seemed to have been let loose on Bilgewater.

Riot Forge is a third-party publishing label with Riot Games who focus on working with experienced studios outside of Riot Games to create more League of Legends content. Their first announced game is Ruined King: A League of Legends story which will be developed by Austin based Airship Syndicate who have released popular titles such as Darksiders Genesis and Battle Chasers: Nightwar.

The story is set after the events of the short story Burning Tides. This will let players explore the breathtaking city of Bilgewater through the eyes of some of the games most popular champions like Miss Fortune or Gangplank who call this their home.

Of course, that won’t be the only part of Runeterra fans will get to experience. The Shadow Isles are also going to be part of the set of this game.
