League of Legends: Wild Rift was finally scheduled to enter the open beta iteration for those in America tomorrow, March 29th. However, it seems that someone at the developer Riot Games turned the switch a little early and has made the new mobile version of the popular MOBA available to play earlier than expected.
Yes, League of Legends: Wild Rift is now technically live on both the App Store and Google Play and can be downloaded right now. Many on social media noticed that the game had become available to add to their own app library this afternoon a little ahead of schedule. I have actually checked it for myself to make sure that these statements are true and that they absolutely check out.

And in case you were worried about that Wild Rift would only be allowed to download right now but would not be able to play, fear not, because you can actually get into a game at this point as well. Servers seem to be live too League of Legends: Wild Rift one day too, which means you can give things a whirl this evening if you want. Riot has not stated why they decided to make the open beta version of the mobile MOBA available in advance, but I’m sure many fans who have been looking forward to the title will not complain.
Now that League of Legends: Wild Rift is finally available in America, it remains to be seen where the Riot Games will take it in the future. For now, the mobile iteration of the game is very similar to the counterpart on PC, but that may change in the future. In fact, Riot recently told us that it would be open to bring unique masters Wild Rift down the road. Of course, it remains to be seen.
Are you going to give League of Legends: Wild Rift a shot for yourself? Or should you just stick to playing the normal iteration of the game on PC? Let me know either down in the comments or post me on Twitter at @ MooreMan12 if you want to chat more.
