Project L Confirmed Free-to-Play, Developer Update Reveals New Character and Gameplay


Ahead of this weekend's EVO '22, Riot Games' Tom Cannon released a new Project L trailer revealing new information and details about the League of Legends-inspired 2D fighting game. Firstly, Cannon confirmed that Project L will be designed as a free-to-play fighting game. "One of our goals is to remove as many barriers as possible from you enjoying Project L. We want you to be able to play no matter where you live, what your skill level is or how much money you have to spend on a game," said Cannon. Below, enjoy watching the full 2-minute Project L update trailer for August 2022.

In the latter half of the Project L update video,
Cannon revealed a new female playable character named Illaoi. This towering female warrior fights with a giant totem and is described as a slow-moving powerhouse who can rush down opponents. Illaoi joins Ahri, Katarina, Ekko, Darius, and Jinx, for a total of six playable fighters shown thus far. Take a look at some early concept artwork of Illaoi illustrated by Riot Games' Nexz | Nicolas (@Nexzerker via Twitter).



Once again, Project L is still early in development and the team at Riot Games has repeatedly stated that a lot of work still has to be done. "Our goal is to build a super high-quality fighting game that the FGC can invest deeply in, playing for years or even decades. That takes time to get right, and we're not going to rush it," said Cannon.

Stay tuned on The Fighters Generation for more Project L news.
