League of Legends will be released on October 27 in both a free-to-play version with a small selection of characters and a fuller paid version, bolstered by microtransactions.
Cool, got a key. :) Wonder what the fuller version will cost and what the extras will be compared to the Free version?
this game is microtransaction supported, so the "full" version just has a bunch of skins/runes/riot points in a package. these can ofcourse, be earned by simply playing the game without paying. riot claim that players who play will not have a gameplay advantage over those who dont. at this point they seem to be right.
