Riot Games has announced that it’s fighting game, formerly known as Project L, now has an official name – and it’s now going by the name of 2XKO.

The 2V2 fighter was originally announced all the way back at the EVO Fighting Championships back in 2019, so it seems only apt five years later, it’ll get its next major major public playable demo at EVO Japan in April of 2024.

However, perhaps most excitingly, the team at Riot has finally offered up a release window for the brawler, as part of a video message from the game’s executive producer, Tom Cannon.

2XKO release date window

As of right now, 2XKO is targeting a 2025 release window for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.

Before then, the team are promising a ‘community led’ approach, and will see the team attend a bunch of public events with the game. They’ll also be asking the community for feedback, including a tease of “yes, maybe even some at home playtests” on the cards.

How to sign up for 2XKO playtests

Those wanting a chance to sign up to try the game ahead of launch are being invited to head to the Riot Games website for playtests, which you can do so at this link and fill out the survey.

It should be noted that these are sign ups for the new playtests specifically, so even those who have signed up previously must sign up against for these tests, and then stand by your email inbox to find out if you’ll get to try the game out.

There’s no specific date for the playtests just yet, but they are expected to kick off later this year.

2XKO will be a free-to-play tag team beat ’em up, set in a stylised version of Runeterra, the same world in which League of Legends takes place. It’ll feature new ‘iconic’ versions of classic LoL characters given a beat-em-up twist.
