After a prolonged wait, Wild Rift's open beta will finally launch for the American region on March 29th. Riot Games has assured American players of providing them with multiple exclusive events as compensation and reward for the unfortunate delay.

Thus, the publisher is introducing a special, limited-time event called "Wild Welcome" exclusively for the American region to catch up with the rest of the world.

Wild Welcome will offer players in this particular region a bunch of bonuses, blue motes, champions, XP, and content from previous events for a limited time.

Existing League of Legends PC players will also receive rewards for their time and investment in the game. The better the PC profile, the better the Wild Rift prizes.

Riot confirmed that it would introduce Arabic in-game support in Wild Rift very soon. It has taken some time for the developer to get it ready as they have configured and adjusted the game's UI layout completely.

The devs think that the fresh layout will help Middle East players feel more at home when navigating around the game.


New champions

At the start of the new season, Riot devs hinted that they wouldn't go through the hassle of pushing random champions into the game all at once. Instead, they will introduce champions who can expand more on the Wild Rift gameplay and the thematics that the game is currently missing.

Since there are many existing humanoid champions in Wild Rift, Riot plans to add five monstrous champions.

Masters of the Hunt event

With the launch of the Masters of the Hunt event in April, Wild Rift players will be thrown into the ancient rivalry between Kha'Zix and Rengar. The deadly battles in the event would help them determine the predator and the prey.

Riot will also introduce a new gameplay system exclusively for the Masters of the Hunt event. More details about the event will follow soon.
