Today Riot Games revealed a new update about its upcoming League of Legends fighting game code-named "Project L."
We hear from executive producer Tom Cannon introducing a feature that the developers hope will bring something new to the genre. The game isn't just a tag team fighting game, but it's also a 2 vs. 2 team-based fighting game.
Not only the game supports teams of two players each controlling a character, but a team of two players can also fight against a tag team controlled by a solo player.
We also hear from Game Director Shaun Rivera and Core Rules Designer Daniel Maniago, as they explain how it'll all work. All of the tag mechanics have been designed from the ground up to encourage teamwork.
On top of that, teams can customize how the team plays together with the "Fuse System." You can pick different sinergies called "Fuses" that let you define the ways the characters interact. Fuses can be changed with each match.
On top of that, Project L will host a playable demo at EVO 2023, which is going to be hosted next week, between August 3 and August 6. Another update with more reveals will come soon.
You can check out the video below also showing plenty of gameplay. If you'd like to see more you can take a look at earlier gameplay.
At the moment, Project L doesn't have a release window or announced platforms. It was originally announced in 2021 and we know it'll be free-to-play, with the promise that it'll be “respectful of the players’ time and wallet in terms of monetization.”
