Riot Games has unveiled League of Legends, a competitive MMO attempting to blend RPG and RTS gameplay.

The idea is to occupy the persistent role of a Summoner (RTS general), who watches battles from a far and participates in them through Champion units, which gain levels, unlock abilities and gather items by being active.

Then, eventually, the Summoner will also gain rank, unlocking its own array of abilities to unleash on enemies.

Sound good, innit. More on Eurogamer.
