Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story was released back in November 2023. However, it only recently became available on all platforms. And in this post, I’ll go over how you can play Hextech Mayhem in 2023 on PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, and on mobile via Netflix.

Since Hextech Mayhem is developed by Choice Provisions and not Riot Games, you can’t find it in Riot’s client together with League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, and the rest of the games.

Choice Provision is a part of the Riot Forge team, a group of companies that create games in the world of Runeterra, often for other gaming platforms besides PC. One such title is Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. And Riot Games is only the publisher.

So how do you find and play Hextech Mayhem in 2023 if not in the Riot Games client?

How to Play Hextech Mayhem on PC and Mac?

Hextech Mayhem isn’t a free game. And in order to play it, you’ll have to buy it with real money. This isn’t the standard for the rest of Riot’s games, but it is for this title in particular.

You have 3 ways of playing Hextech Mayhem on a PC – through Steam, Epic Games, or GOG.

All 3 of these launchers have Mac versions too which means that you can play Hextech Mayhem through them on your Mac. However, keep in mind that the experience may differ from using a Windows PC. 

So make sure your Mac is powerful enough to run the game before you purchase it!

GOG isn’t the most popular gaming launcher out there, but it definitely deserves your attention. Riot Games have also partnered with GOG for Hextech Mayhem, so you might give it a try if you want to play this game.

Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story is one of the simplest games you can play in the world of Runeterra. But unfortunately, it’s not a free game as LoL, TFT, or Valorant is. The fact you must pay for it is a turn-off for many people. But if you’re a fan of 2D rhythm games, I totally recommend it.

Personally, I tried Hextech Mayhem first on my mobile phone through Netflix. I liked the initial experience and then purchased it on Steam PC. The PC version is much better in my opinion, so I play it more than the mobile one. 

I hope you found this guide on how to play Hextech Mayhem in 2023 helpful!
