Replays Coming to Public Beta Environment
A much-awaited feature for League of Legends has finally been announced as ready to be tested by the masses. Soon, players on the Public Beta Environment realm will get to dabble with an official in-game Replay service!
That’s right, folks. After a few years of waiting, League of Legends will finally have an official Replay client from Riot Games.
The official post from Riot member Status Kwoh lists the following features:
- Replays from your match history: After you complete a game, a replay will be stored on the servers for a limited time. During this window you can view the replay of a recent game through your match history.
- Browse your replays: You can review any replay you’ve previously watched through the replay browser in your summoner profile.
- Watching a replay: When you load into a replay, you’ll have the same interface and control scheme you’re used to from spectator mode. The key difference is that the far right of the timeline is now the end of the recorded match rather than the latest point in a live game.
- Share replays with friends: You can give a replay file to a friend by right clicking on the entry in your replay browser and clicking “Show In Folder.” This will pop up the folder containing your replay. Send the file to a friend, and he can view it by dragging the file onto his open PvP.net client.
Be sure to check out the official post for further details, and hop on the PBE to help test the Replay client!
