League of Legends, the action-RPG inspired by Defense of the Ancients (DotA), is proud to announce that their community has gone larger than ever, with the game breaking the one-million downloads mark.

 

The game, launched in October 2009, was Riot Games’ debut title. Since then, it has received multiple recognitions such as “Best Strategy Game” and “Best Multiplayer Game” at IGN, and is currently nominated for “Best Debut” from the Game Developers Choice Awards 2010.

 

“We are pleased that our debut title is growing so quickly and receiving this type of praise from the video games community,” added Marc Merrill, co-founder and president of Riot Games. “These awards, nominations, positive reviews and our large, vocal community show that League of Legends is one of the best online gaming experiences available and we are appreciative of the recognition.”

 

Riot Games has also recently released a free iPhone tower defense game of the same name.
