Netflix and Riot Games are partnering with Twitch for the premiere of the long-anticipated League of Legends animated series, Arcane. The show will be the first in Netflix’s history to be co-streamed via Twitch.
Arcane, the first TV series from Riot Games, will introduce new fans to the world of Runeterra through the story of Vi and Jinx, voiced by Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye, Dickinson) and Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets, Star Trek: Prodigy), respectively.
A special pre-show stream will begin at 6 p.m. PT, followed by the first episode at 7 p.m. at twitch.tv/riotgames. Episode 1 will also be steaming to arcane.com, with the whole of Act 1 available to binge directly on Netflix.
The second and third episodes of the series will then be available to watch via selected streamers using the #Arcane tag on Twitch.
European fans haven’t been left out: there will be a rebroadcast of episode 1 on November 7, at 11 a.m. CET.
In an unusual move, while the show debuts on Riot’s Twitch channel, they have given fans, influencers, and content creators who wish to co-stream the first episode of Arcane blanket permission to do so in its entirety.
As part of Riot Games’ Arcane global premiere event, fans who watch the premiere of Arcane on Twitch will earn exclusive in-game rewards for various Riot Games games through Twitch drops. To earn drops, make sure your Riot account is linked to your Twitch account. Goodies available include an Arcane Hextech Crafting capsule in League of Legends, a Fishbones gun buddy in VALORANT, a Jayce emote in Legends of Runeterra, a Gizmos and Gadgets Little Legends Egg in Teamfight Tactics, and a Single Tear emote in League of Legends: Wild Rift.
The global premiere event also included the release of Arcane‘s title track “Enemy,” by Imagine Dragons and JID. Check it out below!
