Play OverviewPlay Overview

Legends of Runeterra (2020) is a collectible card game that takes place in the League of Legends universe. You battle other players using the cards you've collected that bring in champions, creatures, weapons, and powers.

Unlike other deck-builder games, Legends of Runeterra requires you to not only play the right card, but decide where to play it. By carefully choosing cards for particular lanes you can take on enemies' cards and win. You can also ensure neighbouring cards are of the right alignment and can help your attack. Like Chess, you take turns to select and play attacking cards. Although here you can also play defensive cards when it's not your attack.

Since Legends of Runeterra is a collectible card game, another element is collecting cards to build a variety of decks. Along with earning new packs to get new cards, you can also improve cards via the crafting system. This system lets you build the deck you want without leaving everything to chance.

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for violence, and fear. Some of the cards depict scary-looking monsters, and scenes of implied violence, such as a man who has been shot through with arrows but continues to fight. These still images may be disturbing to younger children.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
