League of Legends, the extremely popular MOBA (Massive Online Battle Arena), has taken it’s first swing at going analog with their newest release, League of Legends: Mechs Vs Minions (LoL:MvM).
LoL:MvM is a co-operative game for 2-4 players with programming movement as it’s primary mechanic. Players takes on one of the 4 champions from the League of Legends game and work together to achieve a variety of different objectives, such as point capture or protect the objective. Players draft program cards together and then slot them into their command zone, then execute the maneuvers. As the game progresses, players will have opportunity to add blueprints to modify their mechs, combine similar command cards together to create even more powerful actions, and earn the right to unleash their Overclock skill.
The game comes in an enormous box with a large array of components usually seen in deluxe Kickstarter games. There are 100 minion miniatures, 4 pre-painted champion minitures, and a large selection of tiles, cards, coins, crystals, and an hourglass.
The game is set to release on 10/13/2016 and is available only in the Riot Games Store. The game will cost $75 plus shipping.
