Riot Games’ 2v2 fighting game, set in the League of Legends universe, is now officially named 2XKO. Initially revealed as Project L in 2019, 2XKO made its hands-on debut with a demo at EVO 2023, giving players their first real taste of the game. 2XKO, a 2v2 team-based fighter, will enable players to pair up, each controlling a character who can be swapped in and out of the battle at any time. While Riot Games has yet to unveil the complete roster for 2XKO, confirmed characters include fan favorites such as Ekko, Ahri, and Yasuo.

Along with revealing the 2XKO name, Riot Games also shared that it’s currently aiming for a 2025 release window. Further opportunities to experience the game will be available at EVO Japan 2024 in April, with at-home playtesting expected to occur by the year’s end.
