League Of Legends, Valorant, And More Riot Games Are Heading To Xbox Game Pass This Winter
Xbox Game Pass is about to get more robust for fans of PC and mobile multiplayer titles. Riot Games, developer of League of Legends and Valorant, has announced that five of its PC and mobile games will be coming to Game Pass this year, including League, Valorant, Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and League of Legends: Wild Rift.
Riot Games President Marc Merrill appeared at Microsoft’s Xbox/Bethesdas Showcase 2022 to make the announcement, which included some details on what Game Pass subscribers can expect to get with the titles. Check out the trailer below.
In addition to getting access to Riot’s PC and mobile games, Game Pass subscribers also get in-game benefits for playing through Microsoft’s platform. All Champions are unlocked in League of Legends for PC and League of Legends: Wild Rift for mobile, while all Agent characters are unlocked for Valorant on PC. Legends of Runeterra players get access to the Foundations card game for PC and mobile play, and Teamfight Tactics players on PC and mobile get a select cast of Little Legends characters.
That’s a lot to get access to as part of the subscription, which makes Game Pass a good way for players who might have been interested in some of Riot’s games to jump in and see how they play without have to make a large additional investment. It also highlights something that’s sometimes glossed over about Game Pass: its connectivity with mobile games. Game Pass can stream a whole host of games to mobile devices, and with Microsoft bringing Wild Rift, Legends of Runeterra, and Teamfight Tactics to the service, it suggests Xbox is putting more emphasis on that aspect of the service.
