The riot League of Legends fighting gamecurrently still codename LOTS project, which was shown for the longest time ever on Monday. A new video shows off the game’s combat mechanics, with a particular emphasis on the Cards and Assist systems, which are now the focus of the game. The video includes some new moves from Heroes like Darius, Ekko, Ahri, and Jinx, as well as an update on Illaoi, who is also on his way to the game.
LOTS project started out as a one-on-one fighting game, Riot’s Shaun “Unconkable” Rivera said in this latest video, but has since turned to a Tag-team system of two warriors who can support each other in various ways throughout the game. Although Riot announced this change a while ago, until now it was unclear to what extent the tagged characters would interact with each other.
This video shows a lot of examples of interactions, including Jinx setting traps for Ekko to charge directly into the enemy’s Darius, or Ahri taking out an enemy for her ally Darius to knock out with his ax. The game also features a system that allows players to quickly swap from their current character to a support character if both are onscreen at the same time, as well as a team-based combo breaker. cards to help the player get out of a special jam.
Next to the dynamic card is the right game direction for LOTS projectthe video also compares it to the teamfight in League of Legends fit. Total combat accounts for a very large percentage League of Legends‘ suits the moments that matter most, when different Champions from each team combine their abilities and attacks to create massive combos on enemies.
Unfortunately, while this latest video is the most we’ve seen of the game to date, Riot has stayed quiet as to what we can expect. LOTS project will be released – or even get a real name.
