Ruined King Attracted Many Players and Collects Positive Reviews on Steam

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story has been released. This turn-based RPG set in Riot Games' universe of Runeterra collects very positive reviews on Steam.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  • New game from the League of Legends universe aroused considerable interest among players on Steam and Twitch;
  • Ruined King: A League of Legends Story has been collecting positive reviews, and is at the top of Steam's bestseller list;
  • Players pointed out a lot of minor bugs and poor fishing mechanics.

Unexpectedly, Riot Games has announced the release of Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, which was announced in 2019.

Within several hours, the game attracted more than 14,000 players on Steam, and at the peak moment the gameplay was watched by 107,000 people on Twitch. At this point, more than 85% of reviews on Steam are positive, and the game was on the first place of Steam's bestseller list.

Players primarily liked the turn-based combat system and accessible storyline of Ruined King, a game set in the League of Legends universe. The latter enables us to easily explore the history of the world and the heroes of Runeterra for those who do not like Riot Games MOBAs, because they prefer solo games.

The game's visual layer is also praised, as it maintains the style known from League of Legends. The players also appreciated the low system requirements, which make the title run satisfactorily even on a proverbial "potato rig". However, the game is criticized for a large number of annoying bugs, one of which prevents some players from completing the tutorial. In addition, some are critical of the fishing mechanics in Ruined King which, in their opinion, is too simplified and resembles fishing from Battle Chasers: Nightwar. For both titles were created by Airship Syndicate.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story was released on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG), PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Next-gen versions of the game are coming soon and will be available as a free upgrade for Playstation 5 and as part of the Smart Delivery feature for Xbox Series X/S.
