Legends of Runeterra beta release date

How to sign up to the Legends of Runeterra beta and gain access to the LoL card game


What are the Legends of Runeterra beta dates? If you’re hankering to play the new Riot card game, here’s how to get Legends of Runeterra beta access.

Since Legends of Runeterra was announced earlier in the year, card game enthusiasts have wanted to get their hands on this new CCG. Legends of Runeterra could be a strong new contender to the best card games on PC when it launches in full, successfully implementing LoL elements such as playable champions, the Nexus, and themed Legends of Runeterra cards such as Chain Best and Recall. Although Riot Games comment on the direct port of LoL saying “When it comes to familiar elements from League of Legends like the Nexus or Champions, we’re not just trying [to] directly port LoL 1:1, but rather provide immersive elements that improve the overall player experience.”

If you want to jump into the Legends of Runeterra beta, here’s how to sign up to the LoR closed beta, including dates, access, and when you can expect the Legends of Runeterra release date.

If you want to try Riot’s new CCG you’ll be glad to know that there’s not long to wait. The next Legends of Runeterra beta release date is January 24, 2020, and it kicks off at 19:00 GMT. If you pre-register before 7:59 am January 20, or have participated in a closed beta, though, then you can jump in a day early – as a treat.

The Legends of Runeterra release date is sometime in 2020, but has not been specified. As the closed beta is early 2020, we can potentially expect the full release date for LoR to be later in the year.
