League of Legends open beta begins

Try the DotA spin-off for free.

League of Legends, the RTS/RPG hybrid from the creators of all-conquering Warcraft III mod Defence of the Ancients, begins its open beta today.

European players can sign up at the game's website. Open beta will last a week, before the game's "pre-season" begins on 30th October. Since League of Legends is free-to-play, you'll be able to keep your open beta accounts once the game launches in earnest.

League of Legends is an evolution of the Warcraft mod DotA Allstars, one of the most popular player-made mods in history. As a highly competitive online multiplayer game, it will operate in seasons: the pre-season will give players time to learn the game and organise themselves before season one begins in the first half of next year.
