“League of Legends” launches the first trailer for the “Arcane” series
One of the biggest video and esports games on the planet gets its first TV series this fall at the Netflix premiere Esoteric, a new show in the world of League of Legends. The nine-episode series is divided into three âactsâ, including three episodes per act. Starting in November, a new trio of episodes debut every week on Netflix.
According to the official press release, âplayers will see familiar faces in Esoteric, like Jinx, Vi, Jayce and Caitlyn, and learn about the events that made them the iconic champions we know today as we move their stories forward. Players will also discover new faces, like Vander and Silco, both of whom are citizens of Zaun and play a vital role in the evolution of the world. The first three episodes are about Jinx and Vi – voiced on the series by Ella Purnell and Hailee Steinfeld, respectively.
Although the show was announced some time ago, the trailer has just been released as part of Netflix’s Tudum fan event. Watch it below:
Here’s the official synopsis for the show:
Based on the world behind League of Legends, Esoteric delves into the delicate balance between the wealthy town of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Known throughout Runeterra as the “City of Progress”, many of the brightest minds have made their home in these cities. But the creation of hexech, a way for anyone to control magical energy, threatens that balance. While Esoteric holds the stories of League of Legends champions, the series is designed to stand out as a complex world filled with moral decisions, jaw-dropping animation, and suspenseful storytelling.
Esoteric Premieres on Netflix Saturday, November 6 at 7:00 p.m. PT.
