Riot and Bit.Trip series developer Choice Provisions unveil Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story
League of Legends is expanding to a new genre: the rhythm platformer. Riot Games and developer Choice Provisions, the creator of the Bit.Trip series, announced Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story on Tuesday, which is coming to Nintendo Switch and Windows PC on Nov. 16, followed by a version for Netflix’s mobile games service “soon.”
Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story stars Ziggs, the League champion known for his “Hexplosives” expertise. Players bomb-jump and attack enemies to the beat, avoiding obstacles (and League champion Heimerdinger) and chaining together explosions to a rhythmic soundtrack. You can see Ziggs in rhythm-runner action in the debut trailer for Hextech Mayhem above.
Choice Provisions’ take on the League of Legends universe is part of Riot Games’ effort to bring outside developers into the League intellectual property. Other games unveiled as part of that effort, published under the label Riot Forge, include role-playing game Ruined King: A League of Legends Story made by Battle Chasers: Nightwar developer Airship Syndicate. Riot plans to showcase its Riot Forge lineup during a video presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 8 a.m. PST.
Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is available for pre-order on Switch and PC, via Steam, GOG.com, and the Epic Games Store. Those who do pre-order will unlock an exclusive Ruined Ziggs skin for the rhythm runner game.

Sony to keep making PlayStation 4 as PS5 output hits snag – New York Post

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.
Sony’s plans to mass produce its new PlayStation 5 gaming console have been put on hold because of disruptions in the global supply chain — forcing the company to keep cranking out its older PS4 systems.
The Japanese tech giant had initially planned to phase out manufacturing of PS4 at the end of last year and move to a full transition to its newer consoles, according to Bloomberg. But now it is pivoting to produce as many as 1 million of the old models in 2022.
After introducing the PS5 in November 2020, supply has been scarce due to shortages in advanced chips and other commodities needed to mass produce the hardware.
This past November, Sony reduced its PS5 production outlook. Initially, it aimed to make more than 16 million units in the year ending in March, but that number was trimmed to 14.8 million.
The older PS4 is cheaper to make and uses less advanced chips and software than its successor. Released in 2013, the PS4 has sold more than 116 million units and remains popular among gamers.
The PS5, which offers more sophisticated graphics and faster loading times than the PS4, was also met with great fanfare. As of September 2021, it has sold 13.3 million total units — surpassing the 7.6 million units that the PS4 sold in its first year of availability nearly a decade ago.
Sony told assembly partners late last year that it is pivoting to manufacture more PS4 consoles this year, though a company spokesperson denied that it had planned to discontinue production altogether.
“It is one of the best-selling consoles ever and there is always crossover between generations,” a spokesperson told Bloomberg.
This past fall, Sony reported a 27% increase in sales in its gaming division for the three-month fiscal quarter that ended on Sept. 30. The firm credited the popularity of the PS5.
In total, the Japanese conglomerate’s gaming division recorded $5.7 billion in sales during the three month period starting in July. Operating income fell 21% to $727 million while the company generated $10.8 billion in revenue.
Sony isn’t the only gaming company that is relying on its older technologies to keep profits flowing during the supply chain crunch.
Last year, Nvidia, the US firm that makes processing units for gaming consoles, revived its previous generation of GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards due to the shortage in semiconductors.
While the company never officially discontinued production of the card, it was not listed for sale as recently as November 2020.
The card was first introduced in 2016, but was gradually phased out in favor of the newer 16-series cards, according to PC Gamer.
Market observers say that the supply chain crisis and chip shortages will likely last through this year.
