An Overview of Legends of Runeterra
The whole idea behind Legends of Runeterra is to bring something new to the table. Talking about the game, a designer revealed that they have learned a lot from what the other card games have done in the past and will try to make Legends of Runeterra as exciting as possible. If we look at the details, Legends of Runeterra is set in the League of Legends universe and focuses Runeterra, a place where the lore unfolds. This means some of the iconic locations such as Noxus, Freljord, Zaun, Piltover, Ionia, and the Shadow Isles will be featured.
Similarly, you will have the legendary characters from these places as well as the new ones. In terms of gameplay, you may find Legends of Runeterra similar to Blizzard’s Hearthstone or Valve’s Artifact. However, that doesn’t imply Riot plans to replicate the said games. Instead, the studio as mentioned earlier wants to bring something new and will definitely give the other hits competition.
The biggest difference between the said games and Legends of Runeterra is the approach to the combat. For instance, Legends of Runeterra in each round allows the player to take on the role of either attacker or defender. Each time a player makes an action, the other player is given a chance to respond. On the contrary, Hearthstone players go unopposed in doing whatever that can during their turn.
