Riot Games have just released a brand new cinematic for their leading free-to-play MOBA game, League of Legends, and it’s awesome! Rumors have been circulating for some time regarding the potential of League of Legends in other forms of media, mainly TV and web series. Fans have speculated that both the in-game lore and universe coupled with the huge fan base is more than enough for Riot Games to build on and this latest trailer demonstrates that; and then some.
I’ve strayed from League of Legends recently but this new cinematic video had my attention for the entire thing, never once did I take my eyes off the screen. I watched in awe as Twisted Fate dodged the onslaught of crows from Fiddlesticks and I gasped for breath as Ryze battled Nocturne and the elements. The awesomeness continues as Katarina and Garen slog it out in 1v1. The Champions continue to pour out until a final battle with what many are speculating will be the new form of the Baron.
League of Legends fan or not, you can’t debate the pure quality of the cinematic’s on display. What do you think?
