Gameplay

Game Modes and Maps

Red Nexus icon Classic

Summoners Rift

Summoners Rift in Wild Rift

The map is an abridged Summoner's Rift which has been reduced in features and territory, but still supports three lanes and five players per side.

Each team has its base, which contains the re-spawn point, item shop, and Nexus. The two bases are connected by lanes. Periodically, waves of minions spawn from the Nexus. Minions are AI-controlled NPC's that move down the lanes, engaging any enemies they encounter. The lanes are lined with turrets that engage enemies within range. Once a turret is destroyed, it will not respawn. The turrets that line the base walls also act as inhibitors, if a team destroys this kind of turret, more powerful 'super minions' will spawn for that lane. The nexus itself also attacks like a turret.

Besides the lanes, the maps also contain "jungle" areas, populated with neutral monster camps. These monsters can be killed by a champion for gold and experience. Some large monsters will grant the killer a buff, such as killing a Blue Sentinel grants its killer the ability to Crest of Insight buff Crest of Insight help them in battle. Another special terrain feature is the brush. A brush blocks the line of sight of units, allowing champions to hide and set up a surprise attack, or "gank".

The goal of each team is to destroy the enemy Nexus, with the winner being the one who manages to do it first.

General Differences

Camera

The camera is oriented with the Allied Base at the bottom left of the map. The paths are marked to indicate the objective near that path, but red side will have additional indicators for the intended roles.

Controls

Players control their champion with a twin-stick control scheme, using one to move and one to aim their basic attack targeting as well as their ability.

Champions

Not all champions from LoL will be released onto Wild Rift. During release there are 40 champions to choose from.
