Perhaps between the announcement and awards ceremony there were other novelties presented during last Thursday’s Game Awards gala that went more unnoticed, but the truth is that it is quite relevant news and a turning point for Microsoft and Xbox. Because from today 12 all Riot Games games are available from Game Pass on PC.
In this way League of Legends, Valorant, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Teamfight Tactics and Legends of Runeterra join the Microsoft ecosystem for all Game Pass PC and Game Pass Ultimate users. Each title will also offer players who link their Riot account to Game Pass with in-game content and rewards until January 1, 2023, which are as follows:
- Valorant – Pocket Sage Weapon Charm
- League of Legends – Select Chest and Key
- Teamfight Tactics – Little Legends Rare Egg
- Wild Rift – Random Emote Chest
- Legends of Runeterra – Prismatic Chest
The case of League of Legends is quite interesting, in addition, because when playing it from Game pass we will obtain immediate access to the more than 160 champions of the game, immediate access to the new characters that are joining and 20% additional experience to unlock content quickly.
For the first time on Game Pass, this collaboration will extend beyond desktop to include mobile-exclusive Riot titles like LoL: Wild Rift. An important step for Microsoft to mark its position in the mobile games market, its long-term goal.
