League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Regional Open Beta Expands to the Americas and New Patch Coming

Developer and publisher Riot Games has announced that League of Legends: Wild Rift’s Open Beta has been expanded to players in the Americas. Riot Games hopes this beta performs well following its success in Europe and Asia.

Additionally, a new content patch, Patch 2.2, will release for players worldwide and feature several new champions and skins, player-requested features, balance adjustments, and bugfixes.

As part of the Patch highlights from April to May, players will have access to the following:

  • NEW CHAMPIONS: Several new “monstrous” characters will bolster Wild Rift’s 61-champ roster: Galio, the Colossus; Rammus, the Armordillo; Kha’Zix, the Voidreaver; Rengar, the Pridestalker, and Renekton, the Butcher of the Sands.

  • ALL RANDOM ALL MID: A player-favorite game mode from League on PC, All Random All Mid (ARAM) will be in testing from April 5th to 8th, then April 15th to May 19th. ARAM is a 12-minute all-out brawl between two teams given random champions, amping Wild Rift’s gameplay to get right into chaotic teamfights.

  • A NEW RANKED SEASON: For competitive players, Ranked will be back with new rewards! For reaching Gold with 10 or more wins, players can pick up Glorious Jinx.

  • THE WILD PASS: Wild Rift’s take on a battle pass, the Wild Pass offers Blue Motes and Poro Coins just for playing, and players can choose to upgrade for 590 Wild Cores (around $6) for a whole lot more. To supercharge progress, the Wild Pass Elite is also available for an additional 400 WC. Reaching level 50 on the Wild Pass grants the universe-trekking exclusive skin, Hexplorer Jax.

  • REWARDING EVENTS: Get a head start on champs and content through the Americas-exclusive Wild Welcome event; pick up bonuses for your previous investment in League on PC with Rift-to-Rift Rewards; and later, pick a side in League’s most dangerous rivalry as Rengar and Kha’Zix go claw-to-claw in Masters of the Hunt.

  • NEW IN-GAME ITEMS: Tank players will have more choices and tools to play around with, as a host of new and adjusted items, including Frozen Heart, Force of Nature, and Sunfire Aegis, are headed to Patch 2.2
