Riot’s 2D League of Legends fighting video game Project L has shared some insights from their development process. They also announced that their entry into the fighter genre would be entirely free-to-play and will include Ruined King deuteragonist Illaoi.

This update is released before the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) this weekend. It heavily hints at the team’s plans to control a large portion of the fighting game community. Although cracking the scene would seem like an impossible dream for many studios, Project’s free-to-play ease of use, their fighting-game industry veterans, team leaders, recognizable characters, and funding from the ever-hungry Riot could make it possible.

The latest Project L development diary has Tom Cannon, Executive Producer, stating, “we want you to have the ability to play regardless of where you live, your skill level, or how much you spend on a gaming experience.” Before confirming, Project L will not be cost-free like its Riot Games counterparts.

People love free games. Everyone knows this, but WB’s latest free open beta showed it. 153.433 concurrent users reached the highest level of any fighting game ever on Steam in its first week. These are truly incredible numbers. Project is a fighter based upon beloved characters. Free-to-play is a great way to attract people who don’t want to spend money for fun. This demographic, as we’ve seen with MultiVersus, is very large.

The project also features the Executive Producer Tom Cannon and Tony Cannon, the Technical Lead. These two are the founders of EVO. They were previously co-directors of Rising Thunder, a simple mecha fighting game. It was canceled shortly after Riot bought Radiant Entertainment in 2016. Radiant Entertainment, the primary Riot subsidiary that works on Project, seems to be carrying the same inclusiveness and accessibility that made Rising Thunder so appealing.

Project L League of Legends Fighting Game Free to Play Illaoi In RRiot’sProjectblog post, IIllaoi’sdev team dives into the design, animation, and art involved in translating a League of Legends champion into a new fighting game character. it’sn an engaging, candid read that stimulates my brain to think about all the possible fighters and combinations. I highly recommend it. One of my favorite quotes is: “ssentially, players want to see a champion Project do something that they have never seen before and then think, “oly shit! they did what?”They can do it …””Although Project has not yet been released, the Illaoi blog posted that there will be an update shortly. I am a perpetual League of Legends player and a fighting game player who loves competition. This game feels like it was made just for me, and I’s excitedd to be silly. If Zero is added, I will yell the loudest exclamation of joy to alarm my neighbors and shake down the windows in my entire street.

However, I am also conflicted and cannot help but comment on RRiot’sinfiltration of various genres. It is slowly but surely setting itself up as the leader in each one. It all adds up when we consider Teamfight TTactics’dominance in the auto battler scene and the Valorant tactical shooter trying to catch up with CS: GO. League of Legends is outshining Dota 2 and their upcoming MMORPG, which draws talent from different games. A monopoly in an industry is bad news for everyone except the company. LLet’spray it ddoesn’thappen.
