Is League of Legends on Steam? The wildly popular MOBA, League of Legends, pits two teams of five players against each other in an ancient arena, with only the best coming out on top. Riot Games has a bespoke client for the game, but can it also be accessed via Steam?
If you’re new to the MOBA game, the first step is to install it, obviously. Once that’s done, however, you might want to take a look at the best LoL champions for beginners, as well as the latest League of Legends tier list, so you know the strongest champions to play once you step into the Rift. To fully prepare yourself, read up on the League of Legends system requirements, too.
Can I get League of Legends on Steam?
No, League of Legends is not available to download on Steam. Riot Games has a client, the Riot Client, where all of its games can be accessed.
Using the Riot Client, you can access every live service game that the developer runs, including Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and the hyper-popular FPS game, Valorant.
Riot recently reconfirmed that there are “no current plans” to bring LoL to Steam either, so we don’t expect this to change in the near future.
How to add League of Legends to Steam
While you can’t access the MOBA directly through Steam, you can add the Riot client to your Steam library. Adding the Riot client to your Steam library means that you can launch the client from the same place you access the rest of your games.
Here’s how to add the Riot client to your Steam library:
- Launch Steam
- Click the ‘Add a Game’ button in the bottom left corner of the screen.
- Click on ‘Add a Non-Steam Game’ button.
- Find the Riot client in your files and click ‘Add’.
Now that you have League of Legends in your Steam library, it’s time to get out there and destroy the enemy’s Nexus. If you’re a veteran of the series, why not scare yourself and check out how much you’ve spent on LoL? Not one for the faint of heart, that.
