The Legends of Runeterra beta starts soon and progress won't be wiped

Riot Games announced over the weekend that a public open beta - and the first where progress won't be wiped - will kick off on January 24. You can check out everything we've learned about Legends of Runeterra cards if you want to get a jump on the competition.

The only downside is that this new open beta will be coming to PC only, meaning mobile gamers won't get the chance to test the game out yet. The beta will also be offering features that haven't been seen yet, including the very first ranked play season - which will last all the way until launch - a friends list, challenge-a-friend functionality, and the first new boards and guardians. A total of 20 cards have been updated, including a huge revamp to Anivia. "So when you reach a tier in Legends of Runeterra, you'll hold that rank for the rest of the season".

When is the next Legends of Runeterra beta?

The Legends of Runeterra beta release date will officially begin at 19:00 GMT January 24, but players who have already participated in a closed beta, or who have pre-registered before 7:79 am January 20, will be able to start playing 24 hours early on January 23. To do so, head to the Legends of Runeterra site and either create a Riot Account, or sign in with your existing one.

The team is also planning to have the game available on both PC and Mobile by Summer 2020.

Virginia continued to apply pressure as Huff and Clark scored points inside the paint, extending the unanswered run to 12 points. If Syracuse is to return to its normal position on the bubble, it needs to start winning ACC games post haste.

Players that experimented with last year's Legends of Runeterra beta will be seeing some major changes this time around.

After the first preview past year, Jay Castello reported that the game already had a meta, which Dave then went ahead and wrote some handy guides for so you can get a one up on your friends before Legends Of Runeterra even releases. "When we know more, you'll know more!" in their open beta FAQ. If not, you'll have to make a new one.

Early beta players also know that their accounts were always reset after the end of a preview patch-but fear no more.
