With 15 million registered players, the free-to-play League of Legends is the most popular multiplayer online battle arena title in the rapidly growing genre. Two years in post-launch development, the game is constantly evolving, and frequent content releases guarantee there's always something new to experience.
The game combines the fast-paced combat of an action strategy game with the calculated character development of an RPG. Its top-down, frenetic, session based, player-vs.-player battles pit you and four friends in a pitched battle to destroy the enemy nexus while defending your own territory from intruders. Games are designed to last 40-60 minutes, so you're not forced to dedicate an entire evening to just one battle.
On the Fields of Justice, you'll pair your powerful summoner spells with the unique abilities of your chosen champion, creating a deadly combination tailored to fit your gameplay style. Prefer to hang back and take out enemies from the distance? There are plenty of ranged characters with unique skillsets to find one that caters to your needs. More of a run and gun, in your face type of player? There are many champions designed with that play style in mind, too. With over 80 champions to choose from and regular updates constantly brining new characters into the lineup, the strategic possibilities are virtually endless.
If you're new to the MOBA genre, or a seasoned veteran, League of Legends is designed to even the playing field, so every match is a new challenge. The automated matchmaking system pits you against similarly skilled opponents, which helps keep matches fair across the board.
