It’s been a while since Riot talked about their League of Legends fighting game. This silence is totally understandable as Project L (a code name of the game) is still in the very early stages of development.
A fresh portion of the info arrived on November 20. The company published a video with new details on the game. Tom Cannon, an executive producer of Project L, and Tony Cannon, a technical lead, have highlighted different aspects of the upcoming fighter. Guys, we encourage you to watch the video.
Project L: Development Update
There are a few points to pay special attention to:
- Project L is a tag-team style fighting game. Players will have teams of two champions that support each other during the fights (yep, similar to Dragon Ball FighterZ);
- The developers have chosen the approach “easy-to-learn but hard-to-master.” They want to make the game enjoyable for any level of skills: from total beginners to esports professionals;
- The Riot fighting game will use the experience with LoL and Valorant to secure the best online experience possible. Rollback netcode is a foundation for this;
- The life span for the game is planned to be long (and hopefully happy). The developers want to assure the community that the investment of time and effort in Project L will be beneficial.
According to the official blog post, the game will not be out in 2021 or 2022. Still, we know the plans for the following updates. The next one is planned for the second half of 2022 (an early period). There will be two updates in 2022.
Are you excited about Project L?
We at DashFight are pretty optimistic about this fighting game. Riot has a pedigree of successful products. They have built an impressive universe around League of Legends and have added a great card game to it — Legends of Runeterra (it might be a good idea to explore these titles to get properly acquainted with the roster of Project L). And even when Riot stepped beyond LoL, they created a masterpiece in its niche — a hero-based team shooting game Valorant.
We’ll keep a close eye on Project L. To not miss news on this game (or other fighting titles), stay in touch with DashFight on Facebook and Twitter.
Another interesting fighting project got an official announcement earlier this week. Have you seen the trailer of MultiVersus?
