Riot Forge, Riot Game’s third-party publishing label, announced three new games set in the League of Legends universe Tuesday, two of which are available now.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is a single-player turn-based RPG developed by Airship Syndicate, the same team behind Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Darksiders: Genesis. Ruined King takes place in Runeterra’s regions of Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles, letting you form a party of League of Legends characters like Ahri, Miss Fortune, or Braum to investigate a blight known as the Black Mist and defeat a common enemy — presumably the titular Ruined King.

Ruined King is out now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (Steam, GOG, Epic) with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions “available soon.” Existing PS4 and Xbox One users will be able to upgrade their versions to next-gen for free. The standard edition of Ruined King will cost you $29.99.

Next up is Hextech: Mayhem, which might sound familiar to anyone watching the shockingly good Arcane Netflix series.

Hextech: Mayhem is a “rhythm runner” developed by Choice Provisions, the studio behind the BIT.TRIP series. In a 2.5D world, players will control explosives enthusiast Ziggs as he runs through a platformer-style world with special jumps and attacks powered by an arsenal of bombs, all set to the beat of music. That’s out now on Switch and PC (Epic, GOG, Steam) for 9.99.

Riot Forge’s third game, due out in 2022, is Song of Nunu, developed by Tequila Works, the studio behind Rime, The Sexy Brutale, and VR games like The Invisible Hours and Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son. Song of Nunu is a single-player third-person adventure game following Nunu, a young boy who befriends a yeti named Willump in the cold land of Frejlord. You’ll solve puzzles with music magic, fight off wolves, and explore the frigid landscape. Riot Forge plans to release that on Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, and PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.

Riot Forge also teased a new game called “CONV/RGENCE,” a single-player 2D action-platformer with time control mechanics. You’ll play as Ekko, a character fans of Arcane should be familiar with, and explore the cities of Piltover and Zaun. That’s being developed by Double Stallion, the studio behind other action games like Speed Brawl, OK KO Turbo, and Loud House: Outta Control. It’s due out next year.

Finally, Riot Forge briefly teased an untitled game set in League of LegendsDemacia region, a great white stone city founded as a safe haven from sorcery after the Rune Wars.

It’s all a big push from Riot Games and Riot Forge to introduce new players to League’s world of Runeterra. While we wait for the newer games, why not check out the story behind K/DA, the K-pop/League of Legends sensation that took the world by storm three years ago.
