Coming early 2021

League of Legends is having a wild year. After years of unbridled popularity, the popular video game launched a collectible card game and a mobile port just this year. Further, Apple gave the mobile port, League of Legends: Wild Rift, a shoutout during the iPhone 12’s launch earlier last month. Besides all those, League of Legends is getting a single-player spinoff.

As announced on Halloween this year, Riot Forge is developing Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, a single-player turn-based RPG set in the League of Legends universe. Specifically, the upcoming game takes place in Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles. The game will also feature popular League of Legends champions as player characters, including Ahri, Braum, Illaoi, Miss Fortune, Pyke, and Yasuo.

At this point, the developer released only an announcement trailer. No one knows how actual gameplay will look like yet. However, Riot Forge will likely release new details in due time.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is the first game from Riot Forge, a spinoff development studio from Riot Games. The game will launch sometimes in early 2021 for Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Notably, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can upgrade to the next generation for free.

PSVR2 is launching with over 20 major games

Horizon VR game still headlines

Samsung had a lot to say during its latest investors meeting. Besides unveiling its general plans for the future, the company also teased the devices that are coming in the near future. For a while now, that future lineup includes the PSVR2. If you were thinking of buying the virtual reality wearable for yourself, Sony has good news for you. The PSVR2 will have over 20 major titles on launch.

Naturally, if you buy a pricey piece of hardware, you usually want it to come with a good set of ways to use it. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case with new gaming devices. For example, the PlayStation 5, despite being out for almost two years, still doesn’t have the most expansive lineup of games that every gamer must play.

Thankfully, the PSVR2 won’t follow in the same, sparse footsteps of the gaming console. According to the meeting (via Video Games Chronicle), the wearable will launch with over 20 first- and third-party games. The headliner is still Call of the Mountain set in the Horizon universe, of course. Unfortunately, the presentation didn’t reveal any other games in the lineup.

If anything, virtual reality gaming has been growing for a while now. In recent history, the market has seen notable titles like Half-Life: Alyx and Beat Saber.

After facing a potential delay, the PSVR2 is expected to launch sometime next year.

Sony confirms ‘Horizon’ and ‘God of War’ shows are coming

And a Gran Turismo show

After years of terrible video game adaptations, the entertainment industry just can’t get enough of them in the past year or so. Shows and films based on popular video game titles are setting the world on fire. If Sony’s latest investor’s meeting is anything to go by, it looks like we’re not done with the genre. Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War are reportedly getting TV series soon.

Sony had a lot to say during its latest meeting. However, amid all the announcements, the general implication was simple enough to understand. The company wants to expand and grow its branches outside of console gaming. That plan includes adapting more of its exclusive properties into television.

Reported by analyst David Gibson on Twitter (via IGN), Sony has officially confirmed development for a Horizon series on Netflix, a God of War series on Amazon, and a currently untethered Gran Turismo series.

Unfortunately, the presentation did not reveal any other details for the upcoming shows. Plot and casting details are still an unknown.

All three titles, especially Horizon and God of War, are part of Sony’s prized possessions. An adaptation for any of these titles is huge. However, it’s always a hit. Most recently, Sony allowed an Uncharted film to show in theaters, and the response was… mixed. While the sheer number of video game adaptations are impressive, their quality is definitely all over the place for now.

Sony might stop releasing PlayStation 4 games by 2025

More games for PC and mobile

Do you have a PlayStation 5 already? Despite being more than a year since its launch, the new console practically flies off from the shelves and into the hands of lucky buyers (less likely) or scalpers (more likely). However, based on Sony’s current plans, you might want to claw a bit deeper for one. Sony might stop releasing PlayStation 4 games by 2025.

Recently, Sony hosted a business briefing for its investors. Reported by Video Games Chronicle, company president Jim Ryan shared what the PlayStation has in store for the future. More conclusively, Ryan stated that they have plans to bump up releases for both PC and mobile platforms. By 2025, around half of Sony’s game releases will launch for those two platforms.

In the past, Sony was notoriously against releasing its exclusive games for the PC. However, the company recently reversed its stance by porting some of its titles, including Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War. With its latest plans, Sony is hugely diversifying its portfolio.

As you might have noticed from above, that’s not the only thing they hinted at. Though Ryan did not speak much about it, the graphic also depicts a stark lack of PlayStation 4 titles coming out in 2025. The year will see only PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile releases, potentially signaling the end of the PS4 era.
