Riot Games has now become the second producer of an e-sports documentary focused on the very game they develop. Announced as a three-part series, Riot’s ‘Road to Worlds’ documentary focuses on the building blocks which have brought League of Legend’s competitive scene to the levels of popularity it currently enjoys, and follows the personal lives of several professional players on their journey to League’s Season 4 World Championship.
The first part of the documentary was just recently released titled ‘The Beginning’ and like it’s name suggests, the documentary follows League and it’s early competitive players through the game’s initial phases of competitive gaming – starting with simple in-house tournaments and leading up to the Seasons 1 and 2 championships.
In comparison to Valve’s documentary Free To Play, Road to Worlds is certainly more geared to the game’s existing fan-base. Because of this, the documentary doesn’t focus on explaining how League works as a competitive game, and instead chooses to cover the ongoing evolutions of the MOBA’s competitive scene through the years.
The remaining documentary segments will continue covering League of Legends progress through Season 3 and the preparations for Season 4’s championship, which takes place on September 18th in Seoul, Korea. Part two will be released on Friday, while part three will debut next Monday.
