Riot Games' Legends of Runeterra will kick off its open beta next week. Those who played during the first two testing sessions and those who sign up before 19 January will be able to access the beta one day earlier. Open beta participants will get an exclusive Moonstruck Poro Guardian.
Legends of Runeterra's open beta will launch on 24 January 2020. Riot Games announced the digital card game and other upcoming titles around three months ago.
After two limited-preview patches that were only granted to a few lucky fans, the Legends of Runeterra open beta will be free for everybody who wishes to sign up. This announcement came alongside with the celebration for the kickoff of League of Legends' 10th season.
Those who took part in the first two testing sessions for Legends of Runeterra, as well as those who pre-register on the game’s official website before 19 January, will be able to gain early access to the open beta on 23 January 2020.
Open beta participants will get an exclusive Moonstruck Poro Guardian.
The Legends of Runeterra open beta will feature some changes that include a new ranked mode, a friends list, new board and guardians. There will also be a patch that will change more than 20 cards currently in the game.
Riot Games pointed out that all accounts will be reset when the open beta launches so you can go into it free of worry that the select few who have played the game before will own you on the spot. This reset will also be the last so you will be able to keep everything you either earn or buy during the beta.
Legends of Runeterra will launch for PC sometime in 2020, and a mobile version with cross-platform play is to follow within the year.
Riot Games are also working on League of Legends: Wild Rift - the title that will see the popular MOBA on mobile platforms, and Project A , a character-based tactical shooter. Riot Games also recently opened the Riot Forge, a publishing label that will enable other studios to further grow the world of League of Legends.
