League of Legends has arrived at a new storefront: The Epic Games Store. Today, Epic revealed a new partnership with Riot Games, and launched a set of four games. The games are League of Legends, Valorant, Teamfight Tactics and Legends of Runeterra.
Grabbing any of these free to play titles gives you access to the Riot Client, the relatively new program for launching software from Riot Games.
Riot Games Comes to Epic Games Store With Several Games
In addition to the Riot Games library being listed on the Epic Games Store, the League of Legends character Jinx will be appearing as a playable character in Fortnite. As Epic has pointed out in the announcement, this is the first time a League of Legends character has appeared in a game outside of Riot.
Also notable is that the article delivering this news states this is the “first collaboration” between Epic and Riot. Words for these things are always chosen carefully, so it seems like this is only the beginning of the two companies working together.
