League of Legends is leveling things up really soon, and they’re leveling it up real big, too!
League of Legends recently announced that years after their last major update, League of Legends is evolving and undergoing a huge overhaul come 2016. The International Business Times reports that 2009 was when League of Legends last made a significant overhaul to the game’s overall performance and features. With just months after the release of Dota 2 Reborn, it seems League of Legends finally felt a tinge of pressure to level up the playing field to be able to compete in the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre.
The updates coming to the huge overhaul by League of Legends are overwhelming in number, so League of Legends developer Riot Games felt the need to create a separate page under the official League of Legends website to explain all the exciting new features and upgrades coming to the game. A part of the website pertaining to the update reads.
“The changes we’re making this preseason all work toward making each game of League feel unique. From the different champion strengths you bring to the items you take to battle, all the way to the masteries you choose – we want your decisions to matter and have a clear impact on how each game plays out.”
