Riot Games is currently giving away beta keys on Twitch for their upcoming digital card game Legends of Runeterra! In order to have a chance to get one of the keys, check out Twitch's article on how to earn drops and tune into a stream of the new game.
To have a chance at snagging a key, ensure that "Offers In-game Drops" is listed at the top of a Twitch category (it is listed under Legends of Runeterra, currently). Next, link your Twitch account to your game account (in this case, your Twitch account with your Riot account). After the link is complete, continue watching your favorite streamer in the category with drops enabled and hope to be one of the lucky ones to receive a key!
Riot has already made quite a splash with the announcement of Legends of Runeterra, gathering over 125,000 viewers and almost 25,000 followers on Twitch – well within 24 hours of going public with the title. Viewers have already amassed to check out streamers who have been lucky enough to gain early-access to the game.
If you have no clue where to begin, check out DisguisedToast, a veteran Hearthstone player from Canada with plenty of experience with the genre (and yes, he currently has drops enabled). Simply follow his stream if you aren't already, enable in-game drops by linking your account (pictured below), and hangout!
Legends of Runeterra brings a lot of attractive elements to the table. For starters, the game largely avoids "pay-to-play" mechanics, encouraging players to earn new cards simply by playing the game. There is additional focus on removing as much of the dreaded "RNG-meta" as possible, seeking to reward on-the-fly decision-making and adaptability. Plus, the lore of the game is taken from the world of League of Legends.
Legends of Runeterra was created by developers Andrew Yip and Jeff Jew and is currently in closed beta. However, the free-to-play game is set to release in 2020 – following multiple waves of betas! Hearthstone, MTG, and digital collectible card-based game fans looking for something new should definitely check out Riot's take on the genre.
