Team game League of Legends will be one of six esports titles debuting at the 2018 Asian Games, the council of the Asian Olympic Games announced on Monday.

The other five titles will be Arena of Valor, Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, to be held as team events, and Hearthstone, Clash Royale and Starcraft II, to be held as individual events.

The Asian Games is one of the largest multi-sport events in the world, held every four years since 1954. This will be the first time esports will be included, but will be demonstration events only and thus will not count toward total medal count.

Riot Games will work with the Olympic Council of Asia and its member nations to organize a tournament and format for selecting the teams that will represent each nation.
