Screenshots of what appears to be a League of Legends card game were leaked after the Twitter account for the game’s creator was hacked. The game is called League of Legends: Supremacy and while only a few shots of the login screen and icons have been released, the game is reportedly complete and could be released in 2014.
The hacker gained access to the Twitter account of Riot Games President Marc Merrill. Overnight, the hacker then posted multiple images and tweets regarding League of Legends: Supremacy.
We’ve somewhat known about the card game since last year, when the name was trademarked and a domain for it was bought by Riot Games, but this is the first time that screenshots have been released.
Once Merrill gained access to his Twitter account, the tweets regarding League of Legends: Supremacy were deleted, but he did mention that the game was at least a prototype that Riot Games had been working on. This means that the screenshots we are seeing likely did come from the game itself and are not fabricated.
“Someone shared some old screens from one of the many prototypes we’ve experimented with. We’re always working on a variety of new ideas for League and beyond. Lots of experimentation that may never see the light of day,” he said.
Whether or not the game is currently in the works and will actually be released has yet to be seen, but League of Legends: Supremacy could easily end up being the Hearthstone of League of Legends.
There are numerous pictures of the card game’s templates and icons still up around the web, but other than that, we still do not know how League of Legends: Supremacy will operate and if it will be released in the coming months.
The hacker did note that the game will be separate from League of Legends itself, making it even more similar to Hearthstone.
