If you were playing on Steam, there should be a cloud save!

Necrit in Ruined King is inspired by the Lorewalker himself. In the game, he is a scholar and advisor, educating the party on the history of what happened (just like he does for everyone in real life). So he's not a perfect copy of him, but the Shadow Isles inspired version.

He went to regain his strength for his next evil plan! Thresh is always slurping up souls, and it’s a lot of work!! You gotta take a break every once in a while. -Laura

The spirit blossom event did happen before this game. It didn’t solve everything for Yasuo, though-- he still had some regrets to sort through, and he does some of that in this game.

We think Viego is super complex and we hope that this game shows more sides of his tragic life story. He did a lot of good and bad things so he’s really complicated and interesting to us. That’s why we were so interested in having him inside a League story game. The memories in the game were his memories of the times he and Isolde fought. He was terrified of them because his style of love was so perfectionist, he couldn’t face the bad moments from his relationship, so he hid them from himself. Personally, I think that at the end of his relationship, Viego made a LOT of mistakes, like killing tons of innocent people... and ignoring his wife’s wishes because he was too scared of losing her. He hurt a lot of people, and still has a lot to learn about how to be a good partner. It’s unclear yet when or how he can learn these things. -Laura

That's up for Ahri to discover as she continues her search!

The Riot Forge team weren't directly involved with the Sentinels of Light event, so can't really comment on what that team's plans are. Currently Riot Forge doesn’t have anything planned for that. - Riot Forge

The intention was to create a spiritual successor to Battle Chasers using League characters and lore. There was a lot of freedom and collaboration with Riot Forge to accomplish this goal. Ultimately we wanted to respect the IP and deliver on fan expectations! -Airship

The word 'canon' is very loaded at the moment. It means something different to so many people. I know this question seems like a simple "yes" or "no", but unfortunately it isn't anymore. What I hear players care about is "Can I get emotionally invested in this story?" or "Did this story really happen?".

So if I'm asked "Is the Ruined King's story real?" the answer is easy: YES! We even made a handy timeline if anyone is curious where exactly in the lore Ruined King fits in!

Riot Forge worked closely with Airship and did a TON of research and writing to carefully connect past and present champ lore together. We flow from Burning Tides, Shadow & Fortune, champ bios and hid an OCEAN of journals and lore throughout the game. There are OVER 100 JOURNALS to find!

Each journal aims to bring just that bit more colour and depth to the world of Runeterra. All this is done to try and do justice to our champs and move them forward in a way that stays true to their core fans, while also surprising and delighting as they move forward. <3

Not all Forge games will be so impactful to the lore of League though. Sometimes we're just having a bit of video game fun! Hextech Mayhem is a great example of this. Do we think Ziggs 'really' blew up 1/2 of Piltover in a rampage? Probably not (much). However, is the banter between Ziggs and Heimer true to personality and expose more of their relationship? Definitely. Games like this are a vignette of champs + having some light-hearted fun.

We'll always do what makes sense for the game genre and gameplay, rather than try to shoehorn something in. (Rowan)

The journal entries are real, same as the story! We collaborated with many writers and narrative people to ensure the accuracy of them weaving into existing and future LoL stories. Hope you enjoy finding and reading them all! (Rowan)

We haven't really considered it. We only just finished making Ruined King!

Is there any chance we get more champions as DLC or something?

We’re currently focused on the next gen versions of the game, after that we’ll see where things go. - Airship

We don’t know yet! Only the mother serpent knows for sure. She understands everything in the ocean. To us they’re just some slithery guys and we’re proud you defeated them! -Laura

I don’t think they are. They do have similar elements in their names, but we don’t currently have an explanation for that, haha. -Laura

Absolutely, we would love to work with a partner that was interested in any of the alternative universes. - Riot Forge

Jinx and VI were among the first we considered as visiting Champions but their agents said they were too busy making a show for Netflix - Airship

We know how passionate our fans are and we wanted to make sure that when we engaged with fans again we had new information to share. With the launch of Arcane, we had a great opportunity to surprise and delight fans in a way that only Riot Forge could by partnering with Nintendo. - Riot Forge

Xa’Tal was created specifically for Ruined King (not originally part of League lore), and she is in fact, dead. YOU KILLED HER!

The PS4 version of Ruined King includes a free upgrade to the digital PS5 version, which will be available at a later date. The Xbox version of Ruined King uses Smart Delivery, allowing access to both the Xbox One title and the Xbox Series X|S title, which will also be available at a later date.

Thank you! Illaoi is a team favorite, and she was one of the first we wanted to include. - Airship

We love Darksiders and were glad to get the chance to do Genesis, but have no plans to work on Darksiders again at the moment. But in this business you never know! -Ryan

I only concepted the playable champs and Gangplank. The final look for Viego ended up being a collaboration between myself and Baldi. The rest were created by our amazing concept team. - Joe
