Project L Is Now 2XKO, As Riot Games’ Latest LoL Spinoff

The makers of League of Legends, Riot Games, today announced the official name for Project L: it is now “2XKO“. This free-to-play title takes League’s “Champions” (characters in LoL speak) to a tag-team, assist-based fighting game, set in a “uniquely modern expression of League of Legends’ world of Runeterra.”


In the first set of key art published by the studio, four Champions have been confirmed, which includes Ekko, Ahri, Yasuo, and Darius. There are various game modes, from 2v2, 1v1, to even 1v2 if you wish to play solo (though you can control both characters at once). However, teamwork is the focus here – as the gameplay involves taking turns, timing the right hits, and ‘clutch’ plays.

Despite the recent layoffs, Riot Games says it is “wholly committed to 2XKO for the long term” – while it hasn’t been mentioned so far, it’s probably somewhere in Riot’s plans to start its fourth wing of its esports venture, after Teamfight Tactics (another LoL spinoff), Valorant, and the League itself, which currently possesses one of the largest esports scene in the world.

You can visit the game’s official social media channels on X (Twitter), Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook via the @Play2XKO handle. The studio intends to take the game through a tour this year, with the first stop set on EVO Japan this April. Later this year, Riot will be launching a playtest which you can sign up by clicking this link.

2XKO is set to be released in 2025 and will launch on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S platforms.

Pokdepinion: I’m fairly confident 2XKO Esports will be a thing.
