Convergence: A League of Legends story gets an upgrade in new gameplay trailer

Convergence hasn't been seen for two years, but it looks like it received a major upgrade thanks to a new gameplay dev diary from Riot Forge

Ekko can be seen in a piece of art for the game, alongside a mysterious figure behind him.

As a part of the Riot Forge showcase today, Convergence: A League of Legends Story, was given the spotlight for a few minutes after being missing in action for almost two years. The narrative-focused adventure staring League of Legends champion Ekko has received a new lick of coat of paint since we last saw it.

With new gameplay on offer in a three minute dev diary, the team behind the game, Double Stallion, says Convergence has “evolved considerably” since its initial reveal. The game takes place in Zaun, a polluted city in Runeterra, and focuses on an organised crime plot involving chem-barrons.

Using Ekko’s time-travel powers, you can work your way through a series of 2D platformer-style levels, fighting enemies along the way. But using time travel, you’ll be able to learn how your enemies work, giving you time to correct your mistakes and outsmart your opponents in a short space of time.

The rewind feature can give you a second life, allow you to change your strategy, loadout, gear, and more.
