Set in the world of League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra is the strategy card game where skill, creativity, and cleverness determine your success. Choose your champions and combine cards from different regions—each with their own style and strategic advantage—then build the perfect deck to take down the rest.
ICONIC LEAGUE CHAMPIONS: Classic champs from League of Legends and brand new characters from the world of Runeterra come to life in vivid detail.
SKILL ABOVE ALL: It’s all about the choices you make and the risks you take. Every move matters and the outplays are all up to you.
YOUR CARDS, YOUR WAY: Earn cards for free as you play or buy exactly what you want—you’re in control of your collection, and you’ll never pay for random packs of cards.
CRAFT YOUR STRATEGY: Combine, adapt, and experiment with frequent new releases in an always-evolving meta.
EVERY ACTION HAS A REACTION: Dynamic, alternating gameplay means you can always react and counter—but so can your opponent.
FACE OFF WITH FRIENDS AND FOES: Battle friends for bragging rights, challenge foes in Ranked play, or embark on an Expedition and draft a deck as you go.
DISCOVER RUNETERRA: Explore the epic regions of Runeterra to reveal hidden connections between the denizens, dangers, and creatures that live there.
In Legends of Runeterra, you choose from 24 champion cards to include in your deck, each with a unique mechanic inspired by their original League of Legends abilities.
Champions enter the battle as powerful cards, and if you play smart, they level up to become even more epic.
Gain new abilities to crush your enemies. Turn the tide of battle with a swift combo. Even break the rules and claim a new way to win.
Champions are key cards to build your deck around, but to take down the enemy Nexus, you’re going to need a team. Pick allies that support your champ’s strategy to level up fast and take control of the board.
You have tons of supporting cards to choose from. You’ll encounter some familiar faces and discover completely new ones.
Every character and card in the game comes from a region of Runeterra. At launch, you have access to cards from six major regions: Demacia, Noxus, Freljord, Piltover & Zaun, Ionia, and the Shadow Isles.
Each region has a distinct playstyle and strategic advantage, but things get even more interesting when you combine cards from two different regions. There’s a deck for every personality and playstyle—but it’s up to you to find the right cards for your winning strategy.
The paths to victory are many. Get creative, because how you build your deck is completely up to you—and so is how you get your cards.
Legends of Runeterra is free to play. Victory or defeat, each battle brings experience and progress. Choose which region you explore first and unlock the cards that call to you, changing regions as often as you like. As you advance, you’ll collect new allies, spells, and champions—more than enough for multiple decks.
Once a week, you’ll also unlock chests from the Vault. These chests level up the more you play, increasing the rarity of cards inside from common all the way up to champion. They can also contain wildcards, which can be turned into any card you want—no guessing required. Experiment with an abundance of new cards to discover your playstyle and craft your strategy. As your collection grows, so do the possibilities.
Embark on Expeditions and draft a deck as you go, overcoming as many opponents as you can with an evolving set of cards.
Or truly test your skill by taking your strategy into Ranked, and see where you stand among the best players in Runeterra.
Where you go from here is up to you. From the champions to the combat, the regions to the reactions, every choice you make is a chance to be legendary.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Set in Riot Games’ League of Legends universe, Legends of Runeterra adds thrilling twists to the collectible card game genre. Craft decks and take on opponents in nail-biting competitions that rely more on skillful strategizing than the luck of the draw. Each faction is wonderfully balanced—and with a generous amount of stunningly beautiful cards to play with, you’ll feel powerful right from the start. Deal yourself into this instant legend.
Long time Hearthstone player here who got really sick of the monotony and lack of innovation and decided to branch out. I have played MTGA, Gwent, shadow verse, faeria, and solforge but none of them seemed to grab me like this game. The gameplay is engaging, easy to learn, but incredibly complex. The card pool is limited but with time that will improve. I love the addition of the “lab” allows you to try things before purchase. And compared to a lot of the other big digital card games they don’t have a predatory purchasing structure. You can literally buy just what you need to make a deck and play, but outside of that, if you follow the faction tracks they give you a lot for just logging in and playing. A lot of games have pulled me away from hearthstone temporarily, I feel like this one might do it for good!
The game feels like the perfect mix between hearthstone and magic the gathering. The factions feel well balanced and the ability to make a dual faction deck helps balance the game out nicely. None of the hero cards feel too overpowered and having to level them up helps to limit the impact they have on the game. Since LoL was one of the first computer games I really got into this feels like coming full circle back to where I started. Cheers Riot! you made a stellar product, I look forward to seeing this game continue to evolve and become better and better.
It’s not that Noob Friendly
I love League of Legends and find this to be a simpler card game I can possibly grasp, in aim to enjoy a card game with a lover of playing this type of stuff- To add, we’re both lovers of League of Legends too.
The thing is- The tutorial isn’t noob friendly, especially for those like me who have a hard time grasping understanding for card mechanics on its own. At first it’s fine, it makes you play the certain cards in order and tells you about them, but then after that it just gives you the cards to read with mechanics you never heard of and leaves you to figure it out. I sat here having to go through ‘try again’ after ‘try again’, slowly feeling more and more like an idiot unable to do it on my own to instead ask my friend to hand hold me what to do. Now this was for certain challenges understanding the hook mechanic and scout and so on so forth.
It would have been much better for these tutorial challenges, because they are tutorials for various different cards, to be a bit more hand holding or have an optional setting to turn on for hand holding on what to do. You can say, sit and figure it out- Which I can do, but I need to grasp how things work before I can start thinking on my own. This review mainly applies to those who can relate to me on this, having a hard time in general grasping card games and just want a better tutorial. I shouldn’t have to be spending more than two or five minutes trying to figure out how to play the cards...
