Listen up, gamers! There’s some good news you should totally be aware of. Riot Games has just released a new gameplay video from its upcoming League of Legends fighting game, Project L.
In a six-minute clip, Riot Games‘ Tom and Tony Cannon showed off a new gameplay video from Project L, an upcoming “assist-based” fighter game that’s set in LOL’s Runeterra. Project L was first announced to be public in 2019. It is described as a tag-team-style fighting game that allows players to build and pilot a team of two different champions.
In addition to its updated art style, the brand new clip also showed a breakdown of a champion’s kit and a glimpse of Project L‘s easy-to-learn but hard-to-master controls. It also offered a closer look at Darius, Jinx, Ahri, and Ekko in action, giving fans a gist of what they can expect from Project L.
As fans wait patiently for the game’s release, Cannon disclosed one of their top priorities for the game, which is building “the absolute best in netcode that you can get in a fighter.”
“Of course we’re starting with rollback as a foundation, and we’re adding in existing tech from Riot like RiotDirect, which does a great job at minimizing ping for League of Legends and VALORANT,” Cannon said.
However, it should be noted that Project L won’t be ready for shipping for a while. Cannon noted that the latest gameplay clip is just a “vertical slice” of the upcoming project, saying that they have built it to “hammer out the final look of the game, in advance of actually going in and building all of our content like characters and stages.”
On the flip side, fans can expect an update on the project by mid-year next year. In the meantime, here’s the clip for you to enjoy.
