Riot Games Releases Trailer For Arcane Launching November 6

September 28, 2021 Off By GamePOW
  • Arcane, Riot’s first tv series, will premiere on Saturday, November 6.
  • The series is based from the famous MOBA game League of Legends.
  • The acts will launch on different dates. The first one on November 6, next on November 13, and the third on November 20.

Arcane, Riot’s first tv series, will premiere on Saturday, November 6. The show will  premiere on Tencent video in China and Netflix globally just hours after the League of  Legends Worlds Final. 

The show is structured into three distinct acts with three episodes per act. The first three  episodes focus on the very beginnings of the two sisters and will launch on November 6.  The second act will launch a week later on November 13, and the third act will release on  November 20. 

The premiere of the show will be at the center of a global celebration for League of  Legends players. 

Nicolo Laurent, CEO of Riot Games: “Players all over the world love League and  its universe. Their passion is what inspires us to create expressions of Runeterra  worthy of their fandom. The launch of Arcane is the beginning of the next chapter  for Riot and we can’t wait for players to see what we have in store for them across  games, entertainment, and sports.” 

“In recognition of this moment, we’re putting players at the center of an amazing  launch experience. Worlds and Arcane will combine to form a unified, global  celebration, blending competition, entertainment, and community in a whole new  way. Think about it like a super weekend for players.” 

Based on the world behind League of Legends, Arcane dives into the delicate balance  between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Known across  Runeterra as the “city of progress,” many of the most brilliant minds call these cities home.  But the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy, threatens that  balance. While Arcane holds the backstories of League of Legends champions, the series  is designed to stand on its own as a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking  animation and suspenseful storytelling.

Christian Linke, Co-Creator of Arcane: “When we set out to produce Arcane, we  knew that we had something really special with the story of Jinx and Vi. We wanted  to explore the idea of what you would do for your family, what values you’d  compromise and the conflict you’d endure. The story, combined with the hand painted art style and nuanced character animation we created in partnership with  Fortiche, will bring players a rich glimpse into the world of League of Legends.” 

Players will see some familiar faces in Arcane, like Jinx, Vi, Jayce, and Caitlyn, and learn  about the events that made them into the iconic champions we know today as we push  their stories forward. Players will also be introduced to some new faces too, like Vander  and Silco, who are both citizens of Zaun and play critical roles in shaping the evolving  world. 

Alex Yee, Co-Creator of Arcane: “Arcane is a story of duality. How characters  become divided across two halves of a city with values and opportunities that are  opposite but complementary. Each with their own merits and flaws. You may be  the hero in your story, but the villain in someone else’s.” 

The champions in Arcane are the ones players have come to love in our games. They  should feel very familiar, but there might be some differences from what you remember as  we’ve adapted them for the TV show format. 

The show will explore the extremes our characters will go to when family and tradition are  put at odds with their principles and beliefs. Their personal struggles impact the world in  ways they never expect and shape the future of the sister cities.
