Hextech Mayhem Brings Rhythmic League of Legends to Switch, PC Next Week

Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is an explosive rhythm runner game set in Riot Games’ ever-expanding universe, and it’s coming to PC and Nintendo Switch next week on November 16, 2021. Overseen by publishing branch Riot Forge and developed by Choice Provisions, the game has players take control of League of Legends’ Ziggs as he brings chaos to Piltover. The destruction and mayhem are all in the name of fun, but you’ll need to outrun Heimerdinger if you want to build the ultimate explosive.

Choice Provisions promises more than your typical rhythm game, as Hextech Mayhem’s website says players will be able to play to their own beat with the ability to freestyle in off-prompt opportunities. It’s unclear how other League of Legends elements will play a role, but you can probably at least expect lots of references and maybe even some special appearances. Hextech Mayhem seems to be more of a bite-sized experience, as the game retails for $9.99 on both Switch and PC, and if you’re a Netflix subscriber, you’ll eventually be able to access the game at no extra cost. Additionally, those who preorder will gain access to the Ruined Ziggs skin. Check out the announcement trailer below before launch rolls around next week.

Riot’s League of Legends universe has continued to grow, with the most recent addition coming in the form of Netflix’s animated Arcane series. The show came to the platform just last week but is far from the only spinoff you can expect to see. Airship Syndicate and Double Stallion Games are also creating their own spinoff games in the form of Ruined King: A League of Legends Story and Convergence: A League of Legends Story respectively, with Riot promising to share more about the former in the next few weeks. Assuming Hextech Mayhem and the rest of these spinoffs perform well, expect to see more from Riot in the future.
