    Riot Games celebrates Wild Rift’s launching in SEA with ‘Pentaboom’ short film

    In celebration of the League of Legends: Wild Rift Open Beta, Riot Games launched a short film featuring some of the top gaming creators in Southeast Asia, as an ode to players in the region. The film packs a punch in star power, featuring cameos from Indonesia’s Jess No Limit, Thailand’s ZBingZ, Vietnam’s Do Mixi, the Philippines’ Alodia Gosiengfiao, Malaysia’s Soloz, Taiwan’s BeBe, and Singapore’s JianHao Tan, Danial Ron, and Sylvia Chan.

    Here is the short film and its description from Riot Games:

    The film, titled ‘Pentaboom,’ is a call for gamers to seize the moment and forge their own legends with crazy outplays. The film draws inspiration from the iconic and hard-earned ‘Pentakill,’ which is achieved when a player defeats all five of their enemy team’s opponents in a short timespan.
    Scenes in the film were shot across Southeast Asia, each putting a novel spin on scenes that are familiar for local audiences, with dozens of League of Legends Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans to spot. In one instance, Ezreal and Garen cosplayers can be seen dueling it out at Marina Bay, and in others, Pentaboom transcends into Southeast Asian food culture with Penta-Boba Milk Tea, Penta-Banh Mi and Nasi Lemak ‘Pentaboom’, as well as a glimpse of PentaBatik, a playful take on traditional Indonesian batik art.
    “Southeast Asia was the first region in the world to play Wild Rift, and we wanted to celebrate that. We’re excited to have been able to produce this short film with some incredible gaming creators, in locations that many players will recognize. We hope that the film and Wild Rift will help bring our Southeast Asian community closer together,” said Justin Hulog, General Manager for Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau, Riot Games.
    The film was directed by Roslee Yusof and produced alongside Riot Southeast Asia’s agency partner BBH Singapore.

    The League of Legends: Wild Rift Regional Open Beta went live throughout Southeast Asia on 28 October 2020. The League of Legends: Wild Rift K/DA event is also currently ongoing, and players can log in to earn exclusive rewards.
