Mech vs Minions, the first tabletop release from League of Legends creator Riot Games, has been officially unveiled.

The spin-off to the hit PC game was accidentally teased last week, but Riot remained quiet on a full reveal until now.

Mechs vs Minions is described as being a co-operative game for between two and four players, who take control of the titular robots to face off against hordes of enemies.

The four mechs – League of Legends champions Corki, Tristana, Heimerdinger and Ziggs – come as pre-painted minis, while the accompanying 100 minion figures will be plain.

Also included in the box are five game boards, four ‘command line’ player mats, ability and damage decks, dice, a sand timer and a mysterious sealed box, which Riot has hinted as including something important – perhaps a Pandemic Legacy-style reveal is in order?

Story-driven, the game is split into ten missions, each lasting around an hour to an hour-and-a-half. Mechanics include the use of “programmatic movement from a shared draft”.

Mechs vs Minions will be released on October 13th, priced at $75.
