In a presentation as part of Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest, Riot Games revealed the first gameplay for the title - which is designed as an abridged version of League of Legends designed for mobile and console.
While they didn’t mention much about the console version set to come later, Riot are launching a two week alpha test for Android users in Brazil and the Philippines - designed to initially gain feedback from the community before a wider test later in other regions.
The test will be comprised of a small number of pre-registered players on Android phones who will be randomly selected for the Wild Rift alpha. This test will happen between 5th June to 26th June in Brazil, and 6th June to 27th June in the Philippines.
We’re heading to our first round of global testing in Brazil and the Philippines!

Riot Games particularly want feedback on the dual stick controls, which has caused them to bring in a few changes from the traditional League of Legends PC experience - like a smaller map, faster pacing, shorter matches (15-20 minutes) and some slight differentiations to champions.
They also announced 36 champions available in Wild Rift, with more set to arrive following release.
