With the new Wild Rift patch 5.0 on the horizon, Riot has revealed a new game mode called Double Cast.

Game modes are a major part of both League of Legends and Wild Rift. Currently, there are two permanent game modes, Summoner’s Rift and ARAM (Howling Abyss).

Besides these two game modes, we get myriads of limited-time modes that change drastically how you play the game. For example, on URF, cooldowns don’t really exist, and you can cast your abilities as much as you want. On One for All, the entire team will be drafted the same champion.

In the last patch, 4.4, Riot released the long-awaited Arena game mode in Wild Rift. In this mode, instead of 5v5, players will compete in a 2v2v2v2 where the last team standing wins. This game mode features unique mechanics like Augments, Cameos, etc.

With that said, in the first patch of 2024, Riot will be releasing a new game mode in Wild Rift called Double Cast. Here’s everything you need to know.

Wild Rift Upcoming Game Mode: Double Cast

Double Cast is a game mode that is a hybrid between standard Summoner’s Rift and URF. In this mode, Once you cast your abilities, there will be a slight window where you can cast your ability again, thus Double Cast.

And if you are an auto attacker who doesn’t rely on abilities, then no worries. In this mode, after auto-attacking a certain amount of time, your next auto will be cast twice automatically. Think of it like Master Yi’s passive.

This game mode will be similar to more URF but less chaotic. But if you want a faster-paced Summoner’s Rift but don’t like URF, then Double Cast might be the perfect game mode for you.

Release Date

Double Cast will be released on Wild Rift on Patch 5.0, scheduled for January 18, 2024.
