Riot Games Goes All Out With Arcane: League of Legends Tie-Ins; First One Involves Among Us

Riot Games really wants to let the world know that its League of Legends animated show adaptation is out right now. Thus, the company announces its own Progress Days event, which is a Riot X Arcane event that will go on during the Netflix show Arcane’s release month.

Lore-wise, Progress Day is a holiday in the game’s fictional town of Piltover; in the real world, it means a load of Arcane tie-ins. First up is the Arcane/Among Us crossover where players can choose to look like a Piltover enforcer or midget furry scientist Heimerdinger. PUBG Mobile and Fortnite are also in on the action, with the latter getting Jinx as a Fortnite playable character.

As for Riot Games’ titles? Here’s a list:

  • League of Legends players will get the Council Archives, where players can learn more about Arcane’s story in the game, as well as win an Arcane Jayce outfit if they can win a game.
  • Legends of Runeterra will get a permanent PvE mode featuring Piltover and Zaun encounter adventures, a new Champion Jayce, a new Path of Champions Event Pass, and  bunch of new skins and Piltovan rooftop boards.
  • League of Legends: Wild Rift will get Arcane-style Jinx and Vi skins, all free via daily login rewards.

The first three episodes of Arcane: League of Legends is out right now. We loved all three of them. If you’re interested, the rest of the episodes will be out starting next week in batches of three.
