League of Legends: Wild Rift will be unavailable to play or download on iOS from 22nd to 27th October
Wild Rift is transitioning from regional closed beta to regional open beta.
We learnt barely any days ago that League of Legends' port to mobile devices League of Legends: Wild Rift will be available in regional open beta to 6 countries - Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand from 27th of October. However, Riot has announced today that the game will be "suspended" from 22nd-27th.
Simply one will not be able to play or download Wild Rift in that particular period. The iOS service for developers called Testflight which is used to handle beta releases and tests for iDevices will also be going closed on Oct 22 whereas the Android version will just be paused.
To prep for REGIONAL OPEN BETA (!!!), we are suspending Wild Rift on TestFlight on 10/22 and Android on 10/23. This means iOS players will not be able to play or download the game after that time, and Android players will not be able to download it. pic.twitter.com/g8XkyKNIrQ— League of Legends: Wild Rift (@wildrift) October 17, 2020
After 5 days the beta will return on 27th and all the players from the first six countries mentioned above will be able to download and enjoy the game on both the platforms, Android and iOS. Not to forget, this is the first time it will be available on Apple's App Store. For iOS users, Riot suggests to uninstall the Testflight version and download the game through the App Store.
Riot also confirms that no progress of the already existing players will be lost, including the inventory will be retained post-transition.
