Almost two and a half years after its initial release, League of Legends gamers can now play League of Legends: Origins for free. This documentary by Riot Games and director Leslie Iwerks is intended to provide some insights on the early years of League, which span from 2006 to 2017. A number of well-known League community members are included in the video. When it first came out years ago, it was available to buy or rent on a variety of platforms. But these days, all you need to do to watch it is go to YouTube and put aside an hour or two.
