Riot Games Soul Fighter Event | Everything you need to know

Soul Fighter is coming soon to League, TFT, Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra!

Riot Games Soul Fighter is a six-week event that takes place in the world of Runeterra. This will bring thrilling in-game content to not just League of Legends, but also Teamfight Tactics, League of Legends: Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra.

Soul Fighter takes place in an alternate universe where competitors will attempt to prove themselves in the “Tournament of Souls.” This stands as Riot Games’ homage to the fighting game genre, drawing inspiration from the profound emotional impact and distinctive character moments found in both fighting games and anime tournament arcs. Across all four Runeterra titles, players can expect a host of exciting additions such as brand-new game modes, unique skins, gameplay features, and much more.

“We’re really excited for the range of different experiences across the League of Legends ecosystem that make up the Soul Fighter event,” said Andrei van Roon, Head of League Studio. “Arena, Soul Brawl, and Tag Duel will let players experience League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and Wild Rift, respectively, in new ways that we think bring something really fresh to the table. We can’t wait to see what players think once they get their hands on them.”

The event is set to kick off globally on Thursday, July 20, and will run until Monday, August 28. Brace yourselves as Soul Fighter immerses you in a world where action and intensity know no bounds.

The Soul Fighter event will provide different experiences depending on the game you log into. Here’s what you can expect:
