Riot’s answer to Dota Auto Chess is coming soon.

Teamfight Tactics is a new League of Legends game mode centered around building an army, combining champions to power-up forces, position and deploy units, and be the last player standing.

It’ll be available to play on the Public Beta Realm (PBE) “later this month.” But the full game mode will be released as early as Wednesday, June 26.

Teamfight Tactics will be in the League client and feature some familiar faces from Summoner’s Rift, but it’ll very much play and feel like a standalone game. Your godlike Riven mechanics will soon be all but useless.

It looks like the auto-battler genre is here to stay.
