Riot Games and Xbox Game Pass are teaming up. If you happen to have PC Game Pass, and play a lot of Valorant, you’ll be able to connect your Riot Games Account and your Game Pass account, to gain access to every agent in Valorant. But, how do you connect these accounts to reap the rewards?
How to Link Xbox Account to Riot Games
If you want to link your Riot Games account to your Xbox account, you’ll need to visit the Riot Games website. Once you’re there, there should be a button telling you to link your Xbox Profile. Be sure to log in to your Riot account on the website before starting this process.
When you click on the link, you’ll be taken to another page that tells you to sign in with Xbox. This will only work if you have Game Pass. If you don’t have Game Pass, there are plenty of ways to get a free trial, or Xbox offers Game Pass discounts fairly regularly and will occasionally give you your first month for $1.
Once you have Game Pass, click on “Sign in with Xbox” on this page. This will bring you to the Microsoft login website. Where you’ll enter your credentials. If you have 2 Factor Authentication, you’ll need to bypass that as well.
Once you’re done signing in, you’re Xbox and Riot Games accounts should be linked to one another.
As for what you receive for linking your Riot Games and Xbox account, you’ll receive 20% extra XP when playing anything developed or published by Riot Games, as well as unlock multiple characters in both League of Legends and Valorant.
With Valorant coming to Xbox and PS4 soon, now’s a good time to link your Riot Games and Xbox account, so you can reap the benefits of this massive collaboration between two gaming giants.
