Riot Games and Xbox have announced a partnership that will hugely benefit Game Pass holders. Players of League of Legends, Valorant, and a few other titles from the developer are in for a little treat. 

Revealed at the Xbox Bethesda Showcase, this partnership will see some of the biggest games in the world like League of Legends and Valorant become further accessible to owners of Xbox Game Pass

There will be a lot of benefits for players across an enormous suite of games from the publisher. And given that they're already free-to-play, it'll make them even more accessible. Here's more on what's in store when they roll out in Winter 2022 across PC and mobile.

  • League of Legends – All Champions unlocked
  • League of Legends Wild Rift – All Champions unlocked
  • Valorant – All Agents unlocked
  • Legends of Runeterra - Foundations Set unlocked
  • Teamfight Tactics - Select Little Legends Unlocked

It was also added that there would be more unannounced benefits coming too. This wasn't hinted at, but one would have to imagine that benefits like these would come to anticipated titles like Valorant Mobile too. 

If you are unfamiliar with Riot's games, this means that you can have more or less complete experiences with full rosters across the board. For just the price of a Game Pass subscription, there isn't going to be a character across these games you can't play as, making them very appealing. 

There's hope, that if any of Riot's titles came to console, these benefits would extend there too. Now please, Riot, if you would, announce that console version of Valorant.
