Axis were approached by Riot Forge to create the trailer for the upcoming turn-based RPG, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, developed by Airship Syndicate. Showcasing the wrath of the Ruined King for the first time, our team leapt at the opportunity to introduce this thrilling and perilous story to League of Legends fans. Our long-standing relationship with Riot Games and the LoL universe meant that Axis were dedicated to portraying the fierce character moments of champions through detailed lighting and keyframe animation in this epic and action-packed cinematic. Join Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Pyke, Ahri and Yasuo as they unite on a journey from the gritty and enchanting city of Bilgewater to the Shadow Isles and its encroaching Black Mist. Explore, discover and battle as the champions prepare to face the treacherous force of the Ruined King...
