Riot Games partnering up with Epic Games

The Epic Games Store will have all the four major titles developed by Riot Games. Players of VALORANTLeague, TFT, and LoR can still use the new Riot client to launch those games. According to Epic Games, “Downloading any of the free-to-play games will install the new Riot Client, with direct access to those titles.” This means that The Epic Games Launcher is an option for players, used as an intermediate between the two.

“Riot Games is one of the world’s best developers and creators of groundbreaking entertainment franchises,” said Steve Allison, Vice President and General Manager of the Epic Games Store. “We’re excited they’ve chosen to partner with us to bring their titles to millions of new players through the Epic Games Store.”

Not only that but “established players will still be able to sign into their existing accounts and use their existing friends’ list.” The timing coincides with the new Riot Client that came out worldwide earlier this month.

A unique crossover for the gaming companies

In order to celebrate the new collaboration between Riot Games and Epic Games, a crossover will bring Jinx, the blue-haired ADC, to Fortnite. She will be joining Epic Games as a playable character. This is a unique event in Riot’s history, as she becomes the first League of Legends champion to appear in a non-Riot game.

Jinx’s appearance will be available from Nov. 5, at 1 a.m. CET. It will include an outfit, pickaxe, spray, back bling, lobby track, and two loading screens.

“Fortnite has executed high-profile collaborations and entertainment experiences while remaining committed to bringing players content that enriches their experience both in and out of game, a dedication we share and admire,” said Brandon Miao, Cross-Product Experiences and Partnerships Lead, Riot Experience (XP) at Riot Games. “We hope fans will enjoy seeing Jinx, one of our most iconic League of Legends champions, in Fortnite to celebrate the launch of Arcane.”

The collaboration is part of a month-long event called RiotX Arcane, which will feature the upcoming animated series Arcane. The series is set to premiere on Netflix on Nov.6, during the most important moment of the year for LoL Esports, the Worlds 2021 Final.

Riot is going full-out this time: aside from these collaborations, Riot also worked with Imagine Dragons to produce Enemy, the official music video for the series. This is the second time Riot has worked with the music band; the first time was back in 2014 with the Worlds’ song Warriors.
