Legends of Runeterra, Riot Games’ digital card game based on the League of Legends universe, has been hybernating over the winter holidays. After a short November stint that showcased the game’s drafting mode, Expeditions, the game went dark, with little to no updates from Riot Games. Based on previous information, we knew that the third beta testing wave would come early in Q1 2020, but that could be sooner than anticipated.
Riot gave start to Season 10 yesterday, by revealing the official cinematic for it, and laid out a content reveal schedule for the next week. Each day until January 15, fans will get updates on not just League of Legends, but also the side-projects its universe has spawned: Legends of Runeterra, and autobattler mode Teamfight Tactics.
According to the official timeline, the Legends of Runeterra spot is on day 3, which is Sunday, January 12. An earlier version of the page’s meta description then said:
“Ranked mode, social features, guardians, boards, and so much more to come. The Beta Season is here—and now is the perfect time to jump in.”
The bold text strongly hints that the Beta Season will indeed launch this weekend, but it could also mean “here” as in “coming”.
Update: An earlier version of the article incorrectly attributed meta descriptions to Legends of Runeterra’s Sunday reveal. The article has been corrected to reflect the truth.
