Riot Games Set To Make New Tabletop Games
The first game in development is Tellstones: King’s Gambit
Riot Games recently announced that it has new games in the works. However, instead of video games, the company is bringing forward a new set of board games. They have labeled it the Riot Tabletop. The first game in development is titled Tellstones: King’s Gambit.
This isn’t the first time the company has made tabletop games either. We saw the release of Mechs vs. Minions three years ago. Here, two to four players fought minions to rescue Runeterra from their reign of terror. Cashing on the popularity of Mechs vs. Minions, Riot Games is developing a second tabletop game called Tellstones: King’s Gambit. Mech vs. Minions was released in 2016.
However, the latest Riot Games presentation is said to be quite different from the previous tabletop game. Tellstones: King’s Gambit has done away with a story-driven format, focusing instead on competitive gameplay. The format of the game will also be much shorter.
In addition, Riot Games is already in the process of creating new video games as well. All of the games currently in development will focus on expanding the League of Legends franchise. While Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will explore the story of the Ruined King, Convergence: A League of Legends Story will be centered around Ekko. The company also has a League of Legends digital card game, Legends of Runeterra, that is going beta on January 24.
There has been no official word from Riot games regarding the release date for Tellstones: King’s Gambit. We will be keeping an eye on new updates as they come around.
