Riot Games has announced that the first regional open beta for its highly-anticipated MOBA, League of Legends: Wild Rift, is coming to Europe on December 10. The open beta also launches in the Middle East & North Africa, Russia & CIS, and Turkey, as well as Oceania, Taiwan, and Vietnam on December 7. This is welcome news after the regional open beta, which launched on October 27, was only available in Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand.
There’s no change in regards to other regions, however, and Riot still aims to bring Wild Rift to the Americas for 2021, which should coincide with the global release of the game.
The Oceania launch on December 7 also coincides with a new patch for Wild Rift, which introduces a number of new champions, skins, bug fixes, and adjustments, rolling out for players worldwide. We don’t have the patch notes yet, but we’ll have more news closer to the time. You can find a full list of current characters in our League of Legends: Wild Rift champions list.
