Two months after it was leaked by South Korea’s game score board and three weeks after it was formally introduced, The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story has an imminent launch date and a vibrant new trailer to go along with it. The game, which tells a narrative primarily based round acquainted LoL hero Sylas, is about to come back out on April 18.

I am not a lot of a LoL man, however Mageseeker appears fairly intriguing primarily based on what we have seen thus far. It is being made by Digital Solar—the identical devs who made the moderately good shop-sim roguelite Moonlighter—and guarantees a “2D pixel motion RPG” where you lead a magical revolt towards the tyrannical Mageseekers who rule the dominion of Demacia. There are a number of correct nouns in there that do not imply a lot to me in any respect, however I am up for steering a revolution in a 2D RPG from the Moonlighter devs.

Mageseeker is not the one undertaking that Riot Forge—Riot’s LoL-focused publishing arm—has cooking away. Again when the game was formally introduced, we additionally acquired information that Convergence: A League of Legends Story and Track of Nunu: A League of Legends Story would each be launched in summer time this yr, a while after the discharge of Mageseeker. These video games have had a far slower turnaround than Mageseeker, although: They have been introduced in 2019 and deliberate for final yr.

I suppose Riot Forge needed to keep away from making that mistake once more, therefore the short turnaround between Mageseeker’s announcement and its fast-approaching launch date. The Korean scores board might have stolen its thunder a bit when it leaked the game, on the identical time revealing it will function “steady battle scenes towards people/non-humans,” which I feel is an outline you might slap on nearly any game ever made, however it’s nonetheless refreshing to see such a small hole between a game’s announcement and launch.

You possibly can take a look at Mageseeker over on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Video games Retailer. You possibly can, in the event you’re so inclined, preorder it for entry to some bonus cosmetic-sounding knick-knacks.
