The corporate behind hits like League of Legends and Valorant, Riot has announced plans to release its game launcher. The merchandise, named Riot Client, will be available starting next week, making it easier for gamers to access the company’s desktop titles by assembling them in one place.
Riot announced its upcoming game client today, making it the newest developer to release its launcher; it joins similar launchers from companies like Epic. Riot Client isn’t entirely new — the corporate has been employing a skinned version with each of its desktop games individually.
With the complete client, however, gamers will be ready to view their entire Riot games library. Riot Client will accompany a replacement interface and a few “streamlined features” because of the promise of other changes within the pipeline for the longer term.
The company notes that every one of its games will have its page within the client, providing access to game news and events associated with its IP. Riot notes that while players can still have individual game shortcuts on their desktop, using the client will prevent the necessity to download and install updates manually.
Riot says that it’ll start rolling out Riot Client on September 20, but it’ll take a while to make sure it’s stable. Assuming everything goes as planned, a worldwide rollout for the merchandise will start on October 4.
