In June, Riot Games announced a partnership with Microsoft that would offer hundreds of dollars worth of in-game content from League of Legends, Valorant, Wild Rift, Teamfight Tacticsand Legends of Runeterra for Game Pass subscribers. The main element: each playable character of League, Valorantand Wild Rift would be unlocked for subscribers. The only question was when they would be unlocked.
On Thursday, Xbox and Riot announced that Perks will arrive on Game Pass from December 12. The subscriber bonus includes access to all current characters from League of Legends and Valorant, as well as any future characters added to either game. Subscribers will also get all the characters from Wild Rift unlocked from January.
With over 160 playable characters in League18 officers in Valorant, and more than 90 characters in Wild Rift, that’s a lot of value. Normally, players have to purchase these heroes with in-game currency that takes a long time to earn, or with real money. Opening up these characters to all Game Pass subscribers removes a major barrier to entry for Riot fans.
Teamfight Tactics players will get a rotation of Little Legends – tiny player avatars – by subscribing to Game Pass Ultimate. Subscribers will also unlock a foundation set for Legends of RuneterraRiot’s PvP card game.
