Riot Games has been on a roll recently! Following the launch of Legends of Runeterra and the ongoing closed beta test of Valorant, Riot is now gearing up for an Alpha test of its latest upcoming title, League of Legends: Wild Rift. The game’s upcoming Alpha isn’t available in all countries though as the Wild Rift Limited Alpha Test will go live only on the Philippines and Brazil next month.
The Wild Rift Alpha was announced recently via the game’s official social media channels. Alongside the Alpha announcement, Riot also revealed the game’s minimum specs requirements:
- 1.5GB RAM
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor
- Adreno 306 GPU
- iPhone 6 and above
While the above listed specs are the minimum required to run Wild Rift when it launches, the upcoming Alpha Test will require slightly higher specs.
Selecting the Philippines as one of the only two countries in the world participating in the Alpha Test of Wild Rift is a pleasant surprise, though it does make sense. After all, both PC and mobile MOBAs are incredibly popular in the country (the MOBA genre is arguably the most popular multiplayer genre in the Philippines).
In case you’re unfamiliar, Wild Rift is the long-awaited mobile version of League of Legends. The game was first announced last October 2019 during the LoL 10th anniversary stream.
