New League of Legends cinematic wows with a "Twist of Fate"
This new cinematic trailer “A Twist of Fate” features all-star League of Legends champions like Twisted Fate, Nocturne, Garen, Katarina, and Annie in their top fighting form.
Garnering a tremendous 6 million views in 24 hours, the League of Legends cinematic stokes the ever-flaming Demacia vs. Noxus rivalry and creates some pretty interesting match-ups throughout its four-minute run time.
It opens with Twisted Fate, chilling under a tree like the resident rpg Casanova that he is, when the mad Fiddlesticks starts attacking him on sight. Then we cut to Ryze escaping the pursuit of Nocturne, only to turn things around with his rune prison skill and energy blast combo.
Garen and Katarina then open the third and most action-packed scene. The fast-moving dagger Noxian assassin whittles down the Demacian commander but falls victim to his powerful ultimate. But before Garen could finish off Katarina the undying warrior Tryndamere viciously assaults the wounded soldiers. Like a flaming karma though, the pyromaniac child Annie unleashes her Tibbers to distract Tryndamere.
And the final twist: A humongous hydra erupts out of nowhere. Suddenly Garen, Annie and Tryndamere brace themselves for a boss fight as if they were in an mmo raid. The “enemy of my enemy” principle definitely doesn’t apply to an all-consuming abomination.
For those who want to know more about how this cinematic was made, Riot Games has also released a behind-the-scenes video. Check it out below:
