Riot Games and Microsoft are teaming up to provide players with one of the most extensive Game Pass collaborations ever. During today’s Xbox Games Showcase, the companies revealed that League of Legends, VALORANT, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, and League of Legends: Wild Rift will each feature special promotions through Game Pass. 

Game Pass owners will have complete access to all champions in both League of Legends and Wild Rift and access to every agent in VALORANT. The Foundations Set will be unlocked for LoR players, while “select Little Legends” are available in TFT.

Game Pass members will have access to these titles on both PC and mobile. Experience bonuses will also be available for select games included in the content pack. In League of Legends and VALORANT, players will automatically unlock new characters on the days of their respective launches.

The Riot Games and Game Pass collaborative drop will launch “this winter,” according to today’s announcement. There is no hard launch date yet for the collaboration, although players can expect to get their hands on the content sometime in the next six months.

It’s guaranteed that Riot Games’ titles will arrive on Game Pass some time in the next 12 months. With the five games scheduled to be included in a Game Pass membership this winter, the collaboration may go live in either late 2022 or the early months of 2023.

Game Pass members have a few more months before games like League and VALORANT will be added to their arsenal. For now, all five titles included in today’s announcement are free-to-play, albeit with restrictions on content such as champions and agents.

Update June 12 1:35pm CT: This article has been updated to reflect a possible release window for Riot Games’ titles on Game Pass that include both the later months of 2022 and the early months of 2023.
