LYRICS
This is my kingdom
This is my domain
You can’t take from me 
The greatest you’ve ever seen
You’ll remember my name 
I rise like the red sun
I walk thru the flame
You can’t handle the heat
The true legend is me
You’ll remember my name
This is my kingdom"


In addition to the trailer, the Ruined King website has been updated with new information & art!

     

Here's more from a support article - "Riot Forge Announcement | Ruined King: A League of Legends Story"
"Players. Long have you waited. Now, the time has come...for an announcement. For those who have been following since December of last year, you know that Riot Forge has promised creative collaborations between Riot and other amazing studios, spanning genres and spinning stories within the world of Runeterra. It is the dawn of a new age and the start of a new story. Riot Forge and Airship Syndicate are excited to announce that the time for Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is coming early 2021. 
SO WHAT IS RUINED KING: A LEAGUE OF LEGENDS STORY? 
Ruined King is a narrative driven turn-based RPG centered around the unlikely partnership between some familiar faces as they work together for the benefit of all Runeterra. This is Riot’s first foray into a completable, interactive experience that will allow players (like yourselves) to experience Runeterra in new ways. 
WHICH CHAMPIONS WILL BE IN THE GAME?
We did promise some familiar faces. Miss Fortune, Illaoi, and Pyke will be bringing their knowledge of the deep alongside some Ionian assistance from Yasuo and Ahri. Of course, sometimes the best offense is a rock-solid defense, so the Heart of the Freljord, Braum, will be providing the group with some extra muscle. 
WHAT SYSTEMS CAN I PLAY THIS ON? 
Ruined King will be available on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, Steam®, and The Epic Games Store and soon thereafter on PlayStation®5 system and Xbox Series X|S with existing PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One owners having the ability to upgrade their version for free. 
OKAY, BUT WHEN CAN I PLAY IT?! 
Soon™ 
No really! Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will be coming to the aforementioned systems in early 2021. You can also add the game to your preferred story wishlist. 
WHERE SHOULD I GO TO GET UPDATES? 
Keep your eye on the Riot Forge Twitter account for our up-to-date communications, and you can sign up for email updates here. You can also stay in touch by following us over on Instagram and Facebook
I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T MENTION HERE! 
We understand the allure of the Shadow Isles and the sea that lies between them and the rest of Runeterra. As soon as we can say more, we’ll keep you updated. As always, we appreciate your patience as we prepare to set sail."


The Steam page for the game is also up, including more details and screenshots!


[UPDATE] Here's the new article for Ruined King from the LoL site - Rise Against Ruin on Console and PC:

"RISE AGAINST RUIN ON CONSOLE AND PC, EARLY 2021

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story™ launches on Console and PC early 2021

We at Riot Forge are thrilled to announce that Ruined King: A League of Legends Story™ will launch on consoles and PC in Early 2021. Bringing the League of Legends IP to consoles for the first time, Ruined King will be available on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, Steam®, and The Epic Games Store and soon thereafter on PlayStation®5 system and Xbox Series X|S with existing PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One owners having the ability to upgrade their version for free.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is developed by Airship Syndicate (the creators of Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Darksiders Genesis, led by the legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira) and is the first game published by Riot Forge. This single-player and immersive turn-based RPG invites new players to the LoL universe as well as players entrenched in the lore to enjoy exploring its mysteries.

The story is set in two regions of Runeterra, Bilgewater, a port town that is home to sea monster hunters, dock gangs, and smugglers from across the known world; and the Shadow Isles, a land cursed with the deadly Black Mist which shrouds the island and corrupts those it comes in contact with. In order to defeat a common and mysterious enemy, players will form an unlikely party of beloved League of Legends champions – Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke.

Ruined King is a great way to expand the world of Runeterra for brand new players as well as dedicated League of Legends fans. Additionally, it will be the first single-player game to bring the LoL universe to both consoles and PC. We are excited to take this plunge into exploring stories and champions that players have enjoyed over the years, and can’t wait for our players to embark on this new adventure with us.

Riot Forge will have more to share about Ruined King: A League of Legends Story in December. For the latest, visit https://ruinedking.com"
