You might have seen this for a while by the time we posted this, but a bunch of Riot Games’ games are now available via the Epic Games Store.
You can now download the MOBA League Of Legends, the multiplayer FPS Valorant, the auto battler Teamfight Tactics and the card game Legends Of Runeterra from the store.
“Riot Games is one of the world’s best developers and creators of groundbreaking entertainment franchises,” Steve Allison, Vice President and General Manager of the Epic Games Store. “We’re excited they’ve chosen to partner with us to bring their titles to millions of new players through the Epic Games Store.”
All of Riot’s catalogue of games was previously exclusive to its own proprietary Riot Client.
You still will be downloading the Riot Client when you install it via the Epic Games Store, like how games by other publishers with their own launcher like EA and Ubisoft does it, however.
Alongside that, you can also now play as Jinx in Fortnite. This is the first League Of Legends champion to appear outside of a Riot game. The skin portrays Jinx as she is seen in the animated show Arcane, which is now streaming on Netflix.
These Jinx-themed items are available in the Fortnite Item Shop:
- Arcane Jinx Outfit
- Pow Pow Crusher Pickaxe
- Jinxed Spray
- Jinx’s Dream Monkey Back Bling
- Playground (Instrumental) Lobby Track
- Wreaking Havoc Loading Screen
- Katchoo! Loading Screen
“Fortnite has executed high profile collaborations and entertainment experiences while remaining committed to bringing players content that enriches their experience both in and out of game, a dedication we share and admire,” said Brandon Miao, Cross-Product Experiences and Partnerships Lead, Riot Experience (XP) at Riot Games.
“We hope fans will enjoy seeing Jinx, one of our most iconic League of Legends champions, in Fortnite to celebrate the launch of Arcane,”
The Fortnite and Epic Games Store appearance are one of many, many, many collabs Riot Games are making to hype up Arcane.
