Riot Games, creators of League of Legends, will make its debut in Netflix It is November 6th with Arcane, an animated series based on the popular massively multiplayer online video game just hours after the finale of Worlds 2021.
This production that was made in collaboration with Fortiche Productions it is based on PI from LoL and places the story in Piltover and Zaun, a region and city within the game’s universe. Known throughout Runeterra as the ” City of Progress ”, this is the home of many of the brilliant minds. But the creation of Hextech, a way that anyone can control magical energy, puts that balance at risk.
