League of Legends: Wild Rift’s open beta is finally here in select countries of the world. The game has been released in Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand for both Android and iOS users.
The game will be coming to more regions in early December. This includes Oceania, Europe, and most parts of Asia. For North America, South America, and India, however, Riot will be releasing the MOBA in spring 2021.
If you’re in one of the open beta regions and wondering if you can run the game, don’t worry—the minimum requirements are very low.

League of Legends: Wild Rift will be coming to more regions in Oceania, Europe, and Asia (except India) in early December. Riot has said that the game will be released in North America, South America, and India in the spring of 2021.
Recently Wild Rift tweeted a message from Riot’s executive producer, Micheal Chow, for fans in those regions announcing the delay in certain open-beta regions. Chow talked about the reasons that have caused this delay.
The main reason for Wild Rift’s delay is the COVID-19 pandemic, Chow said. He explained that the pandemic has left the team “grounded and unable to travel,” making it so they cannot follow usual procedure to launch new servers for other regions. The pandemic has also caused other “technical constraints and complicated each region’s own unique set of challenges and requirements.”
“It has become a much more complex and multi-faceted problem to bring service to your regions in particular,” Chow said. He added that rushing the game isn’t a solution because that could make players face a lot of problems and may require an entire reset of the game’s servers.
Hopefully Wild Rift will be available to all the players in the world, increasing the competition and ensuring players get better.
