How and where to play the Project L demo

The summer is just getting started.

For most people, Project L is still pretty far away from its actual release. But soon, there will be a way to jump into the unique gameplay that Riot has to offer with its upcoming fighter. A new playable demo will be launching next month, but only for those who are planning to visit Las Vegas.

Project L has been one of the most-anticipated games in Riot Games’ pipeline, since it represents the company’s first foray into the world of fighting games. Players will take control of popular characters from the world of Runeterra as League of Legends meets the FGC in a spectacular way.

Here is the only way to access Project L’s upcoming demo this summer.

Where to play Project L’s demo

Although I won’t be flying out to Vegas, other players will have the chance to play the long-awaited Project L demo at Evo 2023, held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Hosted from Thursday, Aug. 3 to Sunday, Aug. 6, fans from all around the world will get a chance to try out the game on the show floor during the event.

How to play the Project L demo

Fans will not need to sign up to participate in the upcoming demo, and will simply need to show up at the Riot booth at the tournament’s show floor. This does, however, mean that you’ll want to get there a bit earlier if you want to skip the inevitable line that will appear once the demo is available.

There will be four champions available during the demo, including Ahri, Darius, Ekko, and Yasuo. This will be an exclusive experience where players can finally experiment and garner a first reaction for the mechanics and graphics of the game.

Since this will be a developmental version of Project L, Riot will be providing players with fight sticks and controllers, but the full version of the game will allow players to use their own devices. You’ll also get a chance to speak with different Rioters as they walk around the show floor, and run some sets with die-hard FGC fans.
