The League of Legends Wild Rift open beta is on the way and we have everything you need to know about when you can get your hands on it.
League of Legends Wild Rift was announced in October 2019 as a "totally rebuilt" version of Riot Games' popular 5v5 MOBA for consoles.
It was promising, but then there was... Very little news about when it was coming out.
Well... Until now.
Open Beta Roll-Out
So far, we only know the first territory to be getting the League of Legends Wild Rift open beta.
Starting March 29th, 2021, the Americas will be getting their hands on Wild Rift.
Below, we've listed the countries the beta will be available:
- United States
Thankfully, this now means almost every major region has its hands on the Open Beta! Europe and Asia both got their versions a few months ago.
Riot Games has revealed the upcoming release window for the League of Legends Wild Rift Open Beta.
It will go live across a range of countries in just a few weeks.
League of Legends Wild Rift Beta Release Date
The Open Beta will first go live on Tuesday, 27 October in the following countries:
- South Korea
Rest of the World
The EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) Region, other parts of Asia and Oceania will be next on the list, with Riot set to roll out the open beta in early December.
This will include
- Middle East
- North Africa
As for North and South America, it seems those West of the Atlantic will have to wait until the new year.
The open beta is set to arrive in America in Spring 2021, and then all remaining regions (eg Central and Southern Africa), will become available thereafter.
The timelines were confirmed by Riot Games Executive Producer Michael Chow in the above video.
Chow spoke of the successes of the Closed Beta (which went live on 16 September), and that Riot has taken onboard the community feedback as they roll onto the Open Beta.
