Riot Forge announced a new game in the League of Legends universe. Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is a rhythm-based game that will be available on Nintendo Switch, PC, and Netflix on November 16.
Hextech Chaos is a rhythm runner style game that stars Ziggs, a yordle with a passion for explosions. Players must perform bomb jumps and bomb attacks to the beat of the soundtrack. There will be obstacles for players to avoid and light fuses scattered throughout the levels that can set off a chain reaction of explosions.
The official announcement only confirmed two characters from the League of Legends universe. Ziggs, who will be the playable character in the game, and Heimerdinger, a die-hard scientist who is the foil for Ziggs antics in the lore of the game. Heimerdinger will attempt to prevent the player from achieving Ziggs’ goal, which is to build the biggest bomb Runeterra has ever seen.
The game is being developed by Choice Provisions, a game development studio based in Santa Cruz, California that focuses on rhythm games. Choice Provisions is known for its Bit.Trip series, specifically Runner3. Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is released by Riot Forge, a label within Riot Games that focuses on making games that are “endable” and lack the repeatable game loop of League of Legends Where Legends of Runeterra.
More information on Hextech Chaos will be revealed at 11 p.m. ET on November 16 during a Riot Forge video presentation. Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story will be available on November 16 for the Nintendo Switch, PC and Netflix apps.
