The new Soul Fighter event has brought lots of new features to League of Legends, including the Tournament of Souls, which we’ll break down here.

Soul Fighter is an event that spans across every single one of Riot Games’ major titles associated with League of Legends. LoL itself, Legends of Runeterra, Wild Rift, and Teamfight Tactics are all getting new features and flashy bits to celebrate the event. On the League of Legends client, there’s a Flash-style fighting game called Tournament of Souls.

What is Tournament of Souls?

Tournament of Souls is an in-client minigame in which players pilot Soul Fighter Samira on her quest to conquer the Soul Fighter tournament.

This takes the form of a very simple but sleek minigame that can be played from inside the League of Legends client. Samira is equipped with four moves — a Q, W, E, and R just like League of Legends. You’ll fight enemies, moving up the ladder and unlocking new abilities on your way to defeat Viego.

We’ll have a full guide for how to beat every opponent, but you can start out on your own without much help.

How to find the Tournament of Souls minigame

It’s pretty easy to find and play the Tournament of Souls game mode. All you need to do is open your League of Legends client and click on the Home tab in the top left of the client. This will bring you to the Tournament of Souls page by default. The page will display the amount of reputation you’ve earned by playing, as well as what stage you’re on.

  • Open the League of Legends Client
  • Click the Home Tab
  • Click the Launch button in the bottom left of the screen
  • Wait for the game to load, then select the Play option. This will take you to the first node your path up the Soul Fighter rankings.
  • Click the match you want to play, and then load it up and enjoy!
