Riot Games has decided to drop some of their biggest games on the Epic Games Store. There’s even going to be a league character appearing in Fortnight to celebrate the occasion.
The list of games from Riot Games that will be coming to the Epic Game Store include:
If you download any of the free-to-play games, the Riot client will be automatically installed with them and give direct access to the game.
“Riot Games is one of the world’s best developers and creators of groundbreaking entertainment franchises,” said Steve Allison, Vice President and General Manager of the Epic Games Store. “We’re excited they’ve chosen to partner with us to bring their titles to millions of new players through the Epic Games Store.”
If you already have an account with Riot, you will be able to use it to play these games and use your pre-existing friend list.
To further celebrate the event, Jinx from League of Legends will be showing up as a guest character in Fortnite. This will be the first time a League of Legends character will have appeared outside a Riot game.
She will appear today, on November 4th, 2021 at 20:00 ET (08:00 MYT). She will come with a pickaxe, spray, outfit, black bling, lobby track, and two loading screen so you can see more of her pretty face.
“Fortnite has executed high-profile collaborations and entertainment experiences while remaining committed to bringing players content that enriches their experience both in and out of the game, a dedication we share and admire,” said Brandon Miao, Cross-Product Experiences and Partnerships Lead, Riot Experience (XP) at Riot Games. “We hope fans will enjoy seeing Jinx, one of our most iconic League of Legends champions, in Fortnite to celebrate the launch of Arcane.”
