Hextech Mayhem – Developed by Choice Provisions

Choice Provisions is an independent video game development studio, best known for their Bit.Trip series of video games. This time, the game will feature the bomb-expert yordle Ziggs, in the landscape of Runeterra.

Throughout the game, you will be able to jump around while trying to stay on the beat to avoid obstacles, throw bombs at the enemies and light fuses to achieve the insane explosions. The concept of the game is very similar to the more notorious game Geometry Dash, which became a must-play over the years.

The players will also be running away from Heimerdinger, who wants to end Ziggs’ detonations and stop the madness from spreading across Piltover. Ziggs’ main goal is to build the greatest bomb that the world has ever seen.

When will the game be released?

Hextech Mayhem will launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, GOG.com, and the Epic Games Store on Nov. 16. The game will soon also become available for Netflix’s users, with the in-app gaming service. The goal is to increase Netflix’s value by becoming a gaming service. While players on all the other platforms will have to pay $10 to enjoy the mayhem, it will be totally free for the Netflix subscribers.

Also, if fans pre-order the game, they’ll get a free Ruined Ziggs skin to use in the game. It will be a nice bonus to enjoy the experience even more!

Riot has been on a huge run recently. Following the release of their first-ever animated series Arcane, always in collaboration with Netflix, Riot has been partnering up with many of the big gaming giants to increase their reputation and player base. Last week, it was announced that Epic Games will have Riot’s four main game titles in their own app. Players will be able to download VALORANTLeague, Teamfight Tactics and Legends of Runeterra directly from their launcher.

After so many years of avoiding partnerships, Riot Games has decided to take a step back and work with other gaming giants. We don’t know if this will benefit them in the long run, as only time will tell. Only one thing is certain: veterans and new players will have more options to enjoy the world of LoL.
