Wild Rift is now available in Europe on iOS and Android

Christian Vejvad • December 9, 16:43

It’s now possible to play the Wild Rift open beta in Europe and several other regions on both iOS and Android. 

Riot announced earlier this year that Wild Rift would extend its reach to several new regions on December 10, but it seems to have come a bit earlier than that. The regions that Wild Rift extends its open beta to include Europe, Vietnam, Oceania, Taiwan, Turkey, Russia, the Middle East, and North Africa. 

The Wild Rift beta has up until now only been available in a few select regions, but now Riot is starting to branch out to include more of the world. Some regions are still missing from the open beta, most notably North America, but those are expected to gain access at the beginning of 2021. 

For now, players from the selected regions can get a headstart and learn the new mobile version of League of Legends. The game itself will continuously get updates just like the PC version of the game and several new champions are likely to be added to Wild Rift soon. 

Alongside the regional open beta, Riot recently announced the “Battle of the Baron” live stream, which will take place on December 10 at 2 AM PT live on YouTube. The live stream is all about slaying the void creature Baron Nashor, which will unlock some special rewards for everyone who participates. 

Slaying Baron Nashor will work through a voting system, where all viewers on the live stream can cast a vote through the chat. Typing [1], [2], [3], or [4] in chat will allow participants to cast Smite or other abilities. The ability cast will depend on which ability gets the most votes in total.  

The Battle of the Baron live stream can be followed here when it goes live. 

Is Wild Rift out?

Wild Rift is out in its open beta in specific regions. Wild Rift started out with a closed beta in some selected regions, but have now opened up for the open beta in regions such as Europe, Oceania, Vietnam, and others. Wild Rift is expected to hit the American regions by the start of 2021. 

How do I download Wild Rift? 

Wild Rift can be downloaded just like any other app in the Apple store or on the Google Play Store for Android users. The app itself will download onto the mobile device and start installing. When installed, players can log in through their Riot Games account or make a new one. 

Is Wild Rift good?

It’s hard to say if Wild Rift will become a success or not since it’s still only in an open beta. It’s known that mobile games are a big hit globally and that other mobile MOBA games are succeeding very well. Making a mobile version of the biggest game in the world seems like a smart move, but time will tell if Riot can pull it off. So far, fans are already impressed by the graphics of Wild Rift, which in some cases are better than those in the PC game.
