Today, Riot Games gives players a sneak peek into Empires of the Ascended, the upcoming — and largest — content expansion for Legends of Runeterra, the popular, free-to-play digital collectible card game. The new cinematic trailer can be viewed here:
Empires of the Ascended will bring 110 new cards to Legends of Runeterra, including nine champions and a new region, Shurima, a vast, mystical, ancient, brutal desert-like land that was once home to the most powerful empire on Runeterra which collapsed long ago, for players to experience on March 3rd.
Leading up to the release, Riot Games will be unveiling cards for their largest expansion through its social channels daily.
“We’re super excited for everyone to finally experience the glorious new region, Shurima. For this set, we’ve really tried to go “next level” in cinematic moments, novel mechanics, and big plays. We can’t wait to see what you do with it when it goes live!”, says Mark Sassenrath, Design Lead for Legends of Runeterra’s Empires of the Ascended expansion.
