by nerdyminutes


Riot is celebrating the upcoming premiere of its League of Legends animated series Arcane with a full month of celebration across all of its biggest games. Called RiotX Arcane, this month-long celebration will be a mix of in-person and digital events coinciding with the premiere of the animated series on Netflix.

RiotX Arcane begins on November 6 at the League of Legends World Championship. Following the championships, Riot will host a red carpet event to time with the premiere of Arcane on Netflix. Streamers will be able to co-stream the first episode on Twitch without risk of DMCA takedown.

Arcane will be released in three parts throughout November and every Riot game will add some kind of Arcane-themed tie-in as new episodes premiere. Check out the list of in-game promotions below.
