Riot Games has finally unveiled the much-anticipated fighting game previously known as Project L, now officially titled 2XKO.

This game, set in the rich universe of League of Legends, will introduce players to a dynamic 2v2 assist tag team fighting experience.

The roster already boasts iconic champions such as Katarius, Darius, Ahri, Ekko, Jinx, Illaoi, and Yasuo.

Originally announced as a 1v1 fighting game in 2021, Riot Games pivoted to a 2v2 format with assist mechanics, showcasing its progress in 2022 by revealing the game’s core mechanics, including offense, defence, movement, and tagging systems.

The Fighting Games Community (FGC) had their first taste of the game during EVO 2023, and since then, Riot has been actively engaging with players for feedback through online channels and live events.

Looking ahead to 2024, Riot plans to organize more pop-up events worldwide, starting with EVO Japan in April.

Additionally, they intend to share development plans online, inviting the community’s input.

Executive Producer Tom Cannon has hinted at the possibility of at-home playtests by the year’s end, further emphasizing Riot’s commitment to involving players in the game’s evolution.

While the release date is targeted for 2025 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, Riot remains open to adjustments based on development progress.

The company aims to bridge the gap between seasoned FGC veterans and newcomers by focusing on accessibility without sacrificing depth.

This approach aligns with their goal of expanding the fighting game community by making 2XKO enjoyable for all players.

As development continues, Riot promises to reveal more details about playable champions, gameplay mechanics, and the game’s release date.

They remain dedicated to collaborating with the FGC to ensure 2XKO delivers an engaging and inclusive experience for fighting game enthusiasts worldwide.
