Gaming giants Xbox and Riot Games revealed that they would be working together. As a result of the new relationship, Riot’s games will be available on the Xbox Game Pass starting on December 12. The Xbox software for Windows PCs now provides many games, including Valorant, League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and many more.
The incredible Valorant and League of Legends awards, though, are the best aspect of the Xbox-Riot partnership. Here you will find a detailed guide on how to connect your Riot and Xbox accounts so that you can receive the Game Pass benefits. Let’s jump right in and not waste any time!
How to Link Riot and Xbox Accounts
Adding your Riot account to Xbox is a simple 3-step procedure. All that is required to complete the pairing procedure is to use separate login information for each account on a web browser. Now, here’s how it operates:
- To start, click over to the “Xbox Social Sign-in” page. You must sign in with your Microsoft account.
- After there, choose the Microsoft (Xbox) account that you just signed into.
Note: It’s required as not all users see this step. Users who are already signed into their Xbox account in the internet browser will see it.
- You must now provide Riot Games access to your Xbox account details before you can link the two accounts. To confirm your identity and proceed with the connection, select the “Yes” option.
- A login to your Riot Games account is required next. To continue, please enter your username and password.
- Congrats, your Xbox and Riot accounts have been connected. A confirmation notice will appear on the screen. To access the screen where you can configure your Riot account, click the “OK” button.
- You can confirm the connection between the two accounts in the “Connected Accounts” section of your Riot account settings.
Unlock Benefits by Linking Valorant
That’s how you’ll be able to link your Valorant or League of Legends Riot account to your Xbox account and have access to the incredible perks that come with doing so. A bonus for regular gamers is that connecting the accounts also unlocks extra rewards.
In the past, I couldn’t play Valorant because I didn’t have all of the agents unlocked, but now that I have Xbox Game Pass, I can. That’s incredible. Are you as eager as I am to test out the latest Valorant agents and League of Legends champions? Please share your thoughts in the comments section.
