Here’s everything you need to know about Convergence, a new single-player game set in the League of Legends universe.
If you’ve been watching MSI 2023 then you may have been seeing some brightly-colored graphics with the voiceover saying phrases like "I'm you from the future." These trailers have been showing the newest game coming to the League of Legends universe. Let's take a look at Convergence: A League of Legends Story.
What to know about Convergence: A League of Legends Story
Convergence is set in the League of Legends universe but is not like the League you’ve played before. A crucial part of this game is the ability to go back in time and the involvement of champion backstories. This game focuses on Ekko, and his friends Jinx, Camille, and Warwick, following the rewinding of time. There is a focus on learning from mistakes and creating better futures.
A bonus part of this game is you don’t need to attempt to find four other people to play with you – this is a single-player game that you can play at your own pace. Convergence is all about the past and the future, and fundamentally, the ability to move and control time.
There is also an exciting element of exploration within this game, wherein you will be able to explore the city of Zaun. There is also the ability to fight champions like a vintage arcade beat-em-up, with a graphical style to match.
When and where can I play Convergence?
Convergence is currently up for pre-order on Steam. The official release date is May 23, those who pre-order before this date can secure themselves an in-game skin.
A standard copy of Convergence to play from Steam retails at $29.99 USD while the deluxe edition of the game retails at $39.99 USD. The Deluxe Edition includes a digital artbook with concept and art and a soundtrack for the game!
First-hand experience of the game
With the release of Convergence just around the corner, we managed to secure ourselves a chance to play a demo version. The demo of the game felt smooth to play and required tactical awareness of where you were moving through and what you should be looking for.
A specific feature that was very impressive was the ability to rewind time, the animation was flawless and it played out well as a really cool feature that felt unique and clean to play. As a whole it is a game that is definitely worth playing, with incredible graphics, fun to play, and is one of those games that just pulls you in - we could certainly procrastinate a lot of our work playing this game!
