If you’re not sure how to link your accounts, Riot Games has published a comprehensive guide (opens in a new tab) both the association and how to link accounts. Once you do, you’ll be able to access promotional in-game items for the following games when they come to Game Pass:
- League of Legends
- Legends of Runeterra
- Team Fight Tactics
- League of Legends: Savage Rift
The mobile game League of Legends: Wild Rift is one of the first mobile games to be offered on Game Pass, but just because it’s on a different platform doesn’t mean you won’t get your stuff for free. Players will get all current and future characters pre-unlocked.
Similarly, for League of Legends players, you’ll have all 160 champions unlocked and an XP buffer to boot.
Valorant players who link their Riot and Game Pass accounts will also find all playable heroes unlocked. You will get 20 percent more XP for your progress in the event pass, battle pass, and agent progress. Speaking of agents, you’ll also get all future characters unlocked from day one of launch, which means this is a gift that will keep on giving.
Linking accounts also means you’ll get all the Foundation cards in Legends of Runeterra, a game that can be played on both PC and mobile devices.
Teamfights Tactics fans will get four arena skins and a rare Little Legend tactician will be added to their game. Starting in April 2023, tied players will receive a new arena skin each month as part of a rotation.
If you’ve yet to get a membership, you can now get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for US$14.99 / £10.99 / AU$20 a month.
