Riot Games has announced that the alpha testing program for League of Legends Wild Rift will begin in the Philippines and Brazil in June.
A few months ago Riot Games revealed that Wild Rift will soon be released on for mobile phones and consoles.
Riot Games is one of the few video game companies which offer great support for Android. Since their announcement last year, they have been releasing new games on the Google Play Store such as Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics.
Even though there is a pandemic plaguing the world, Riot Games is still working on the mobile version of League of Legends.
Wild Rift is expected to be released before the year ends. The developers promised to deliver the game without any delays.
Alpha testing scheduled
A few days ago, Riot Games revealed on Twitter that they will start the alpha testing phase for Wild Rift next month. This is great news since the expected release of the game will still be late this year.
This means the developers still have a lot of time to polish the game including adding extra features and removing bugs. Riot Games stated that Wild Rift’s alpha testing phase will be starting first in the Philippines and Brazil.
The testing program will only cater a limited number of players. However, Riot says they will gradually add new testers as soon as they roll out their new servers.
Play Store mishap
The developers also addressed about an error which occurred in the Google Play Store. One of the developers accidentally changed a setting which allowed players to download the beta testing app.
However, the application did not exist at all and players who try to download the application will only see an error pop out.
Wild Rift minimum requirements
Since Wild Rift is a new game, players are asking the minimum specs their phone will need to be able to play the game.
The company stated that Android users will need to have a phone that has at least 1.5GB RAM, Adreno 306 GPU and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 as a processor. For Apple users, they would need at least an iPhone 6 to play Wild Rift.
However, the developers promised that the game will still work even with less powerful mobile phones. It does not also mean that players will be able to enjoy it better than playing it in a more recent mobile phone.
Riot Games also said that the minimum requirements of Wild Rift will go higher in the next alpha testing program. This is because the optimization process is still being polished until the late stages of game development.
