Convergence: A League of Legends Story rewinds the clock on May 23

Convergence Ekko League of Legends Story

If I could turn back time

Another Riot Forge production is on the way, this time exploring the world of League of Legends‘ Ekko. Converegence: A League of Legends Story is a 2D action platformer starring the time-and-space-travelling fighter, and it arrives on May 23, 2023.

Developed by Speed Brawl studio Double Stallion Games, Convergence follows Ekko as he deals with a threat to the city of Zaun. From today’s trailer, it looks like Ekko will be interacting with his future self, as well as rewinding time in the short-term too, in order to foil some catastrophe.

Convergence‘s platforming and action also makes use of Ekko’s unique time abilities. From gaining an advantage over foes to rewinding a missed jump, it definitely feels like something Prince of Persia: Sands of Time should be keeping an eye on.

The story follows Ekko through the undercity of Zaun too, so Arcane fans should get a little bit more out of this than other locales. But of course, there are champions to fight too. Alongside Ekko, three other champions have been confirmed: Jinx, Camille, and Warwick.

Time after time

It feels like only yesterday that The Mageseeker, the latest Riot Forge production, came out. While that one followed the magical rebellion happening within Demacia, Ekko’s exploits in Zaun will be a bit different, both in setting and gameplay.

All of these, as well as the upcoming Song of Nunu, are part of Riot Games’ publishing arm Forge. The idea has been to expand the world of League of Legends through third-party projects, and so far, it seems like it’s been doing alright. Games like The Mageseeker and Ruined King were solid, fresh approaches to Runeterra. Maybe the streak can keep up with Convergence.

Convergence: A League of Legends Story goes live for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on May 23.
