Teamfight Tactics has been playable for some Android users over the last fortnight, but by the end of this week, the doors will be open to everyone.
Riot Games announced early Wednesday morning that their autobattler, Teamfight Tactics, would launch on March 19 internationally across iOS and Android. The game is available for some players now on Android through Google’s equivalent of an early access program, but from March 19 – and potentially March 20 here, but Riot weren’t able to confirm the specific timing for Australians at the time of writing – everyone will be able to jump in at once.
The game will ship with the Galaxies content, which looks real good, as well as the following features:

But outside of platforms, TFT is getting completely shaken up, so much so that the developers hope you’ll be getting a completely different game every time you play.”]
- Galaxies Pass and Galaxies Pass+
- Galaxies-themed damage animations
- PC/Mobile Crossplay
- Tutorial for new players
The game would also get access to arena skins, ranked play and personalised player avatars, which are already live on PC. Riot says the game has hit around 80 million players globally since launch, so finding a game on mobile shouldn’t be too difficult.

She’s won multiple major World of Warcraft tournaments, and she’s dominated Hearthstone’s rankings month after month. Still, she feels as though people don’t hold her accomplishments in the same regard as those of some of her male peers. That’s why she was thrilled to close out the Teamfight Tactics beta in first place.”]

If it feels like these Auto Chess games have taken over the world overnight, that’s because they kinda have.”]
