The Riot Games announced that it will open an alpha test League of Legends: Wild Rift – the LoL for mobile phones – in Brazil and the Philippines between the 5th and 26th of June. At this time, the experiment will only take place on Android smartphones that meet the minimum requirements indicated by the company.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is a version of the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) from PC for mobile devices and consoles, bringing all the mechanics and characters that the public already knows. Riot Games says the game should come out in 2020 for smartphones, there is no date revealed for video games.
Wild Rift test will be done on Android
The alpha test will be restricted to the public that made the pre-registration in the Play Store and will take place in a “modest scale and with several aspects of the game still in development,” the company wrote in a publication on the site League of Legends.
The priority is to test the mechanics of Wild Rift if they match the expectations of the players; the game systems – if it is presentable and the methods of progression are fair -; and service and infrastructure stability.
Riot has also raised the minimum requirements for those taking the Alpha test. It will be necessary to have an Android smartphone with a 64-bit processor and an octa-core of 1.5 GHz or higher, 3 GB of RAM, and a screen with HD resolution (1280x720p).

Between the 5th and 7th of June, the server will only work between 6 pm and 10 pm. Selected players will be notified via email and must log in with the same Google account used to pre-register for the Play Store.
