We hope fans will enjoy seeing Jinx, one of our most iconic League of Legends champions, in Fortnite to celebrate the launch of Arcane.”
To celebrate the entrance of Jinx into the world of Fortnite, Riot is also bringing a selection of the Riot Games product portfolio (League of Legends PC, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, VALORANT) to the Epic Games Store.
Steve Allison, Vice President and General Manager of the Epic Games Store: “Riot Games is one of the world’s best developers and creators of groundbreaking entertainment franchises. We’re excited they’ve chosen to partner with us to bring their titles to millions of new players through the Epic Games Store.”
This partnership is the first collaboration between Epic Games and Riot Games, the latest activation in the recently announced RiotX Arcane event, a month-long experience bringing all of its products together to celebrate the launch of Arcane, Riot’s first animated series.
Arcane premieres on Saturday, November 6 at 10 PM ET on Netflix globally. It is the first Netflix series to debut with co-streaming exclusively on Twitch, allowing content creators on the service to broadcast themselves watching and reacting to episode one with their communities. The first TV series based on the League of Legends universe, the show will follow the origins of two iconic League champions and the power that will tear them apart.
