Legends of Runeterra adds open beta perks with Guardians and game boards

The open beta for Riot’s new CCG, Legends of Runeterra, launches in just a couple of weeks with several new guardians and game boards to spice up gameplay. 

Set to release on Jan. 24, the free-to-play Legends of Runeterra (LoR) open-beta will include ranked play, 20 updated cards, and a friends list. Also dropping with the launch are three new guardians designed to cheer players on while they compete: Gromp Jr, T-Hex, and Snapper. And as the game progresses towards its official launch, more guardians are expected to drop in upcoming patches.

There are also three LoR game boards in the regions of Demacia and Noxus, Ionia and Freljord, and Piltover/Zaun and Shadow Isles. Each game board comes with new background theme music and artistic notes that are designed towards each specific region.
