As Riot Games’ upcoming boy band Heartsteel is right around the corner, here are all the teasers.
While Riot has made many games, they also made other influential media around them. Some of them include merch, shows, cinematics, and, for today’s topic, music.
In 2014, Riot made the first-ever band based on League of Legends, Pentakill. It was a rock band that consisted of champions Karthus, Mordekaiser, Olaf, Kayle, Sona, and Yorick. Additionally, in that year, they also started making Worlds songs, with the release of Warriors by Imagine Dragons.
After the debut of Pentakill, Riot made a couple of more songs for the band. Afterward, they formed a new K-Pop group called K/DA, which was a huge success. Initially, this group consisted of Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, and Kai’Sa, but in 2020, Riot added Seraphine to the roster. After K/DA’s success, they made a hip-hop group, True Damage. And we have seen Ekko, Yasuo, Senna, Akali, and Qiyana being part of the group. Then, not too long ago, Riot brought back Pentakill with Lost Chapter and added Viego to the existing Pentakill lore.
And now it has been a good while since we have seen a new band by Riot Games. But there were leaks that they had been working on a boyband. And now they have been teasing the boyband. Not only did they reveal who will be part of the band but also the name of it, Heartsteel. Here are all the teaser that Riot Games have shared regarding the band.
