League of Legends Cinematic: A Twist of Fate

By Ryze

At Riot, we love cinematics and we know many of you do too.  For the last year or so we’ve been hard at work bringing a new cinematic to life.  We know it’s been awhile since we unveiled anything like this!

The fascinating thing about working in a cinematic format is that it allows us to get up close and personal with our champions without the constraints of the frenetic, action-packed, moment-to-moment gameplay of League of Legends.  Realizing the champions in such high fidelity challenges us in different ways, and when it all comes together the result is really powerful.  Team members across the company pitched in to make sure we stayed true to the game’s iconic personalities.  You might even notice a cameo by one of your favorite skins, or a nightmarish interpretation of Baron Nashor.  From Annie’s bear, Tibbers, to Garen’s trademark spin, you’ll see how some League classics became fully-realized in CG.

You can learn more about the making of A Twist of Fate in this behind the scenes video.  Let us know what you think, and if you guys like it we’ll continue to document and share more of the creative process.
