In an unexpected announcement at the start of today’s Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, Riot Games revealed it is making its way into Game Pass.
Game Pass owners will soon be able to enjoy the worlds of multiple Riot titles, including League of Legends, VALORANT, Teamfight Tactics, League of Legends: Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra. The trailer specified that this crossover will be released this winter for both PC and mobile, though Microsoft did not specify a date. More information is expected to drop in the coming months.
Through Game Pass, players of each game will enjoy plentiful bonuses. These bonuses will help players get a head start in all Riot titles and quickly give them the chance to explore all that these games have to offer.
Game Pass owners will have all champions unlocked in League of Legends and Wild Rift. This includes the most recent champion to release in League, Bel’Veth, though players should be aware that Wild Rift’s cast of characters is much smaller.
VALORANT players will have all agents unlocked with Game Pass, allowing them to bypass the grind of every agent’s contract. It is unclear if players will also receive all the rewards associated with completing the contracts.
In Legends of Runeterra, players will unlock the Foundations set for free. Meanwhile, in Teamfight Tactics, players will get a selection of unlocked Little Legends to play as, though specifics are not yet known.
More information on this collaboration between Riot and Game Pass is expected to be revealed as the year continues. The games and bonuses are expected to release this winter for PC and mobile.
Correction at 1:50pm CT on June 12: An earlier headline incorrectly stated the games would be released on console. We regret this error.
