Valorant - Microsoft Game Pass


Valorant and other Riot Games live-service titles are available on Microsoft’s Game Pass with free bonuses.
Valorant players can unlock every agent automatically as long as their Game Pass subscription is active.
You will lose access to the pre-unlocked agents if you stop your subscription but all normally unlocked content will be permanently available.

Riot Games is currently partnered with Microsoft Game Pass and you can get a lot of in-game bonuses if you are subscribed to the service. From free cards in Legends of Runeterra to pre-unlocked champions in League of Legends, there are bonuses for all live-service Riot Games titles and Valorant has some free unlocks as well. Here is everything you need to know about the free bonuses you get in Valorant as a Game Pass subscriber.

How to play Valorant on Game Pass

Valorant is a free-to-play title but if you are a Game Pass subscriber, you will automatically unlock all legends. 

  1. Search “Xbox” in Windows 10 or 11 and launch the app

  2. If you don’t have the Xbox App installed, you can search for Microsoft Store instead and download the app from there

  3. Launch the Xbox app

  4. There will be an option to subscribe to Game Pass on the homepage

  5. Purchase a subscription. There are special offers for new subscribers and you can join the service for $1 for your first month.

  6. Search for Valorant in the Xbox app

  7. Click on Install

Players will need to link their Riot Games and Xbox accounts to access all of the agents for free. You will get a prompt to connect your Riot Games account on the Valorant launcher after installing the game and you can just login with your Valorant ID to gain access to all agents for free.

What happens if you stop subscribing to Game Pass

If you want to discontinue your Game Pass subscription, you will still be able to unlock agents in the normal ways while playing with an account linked to Game Pass. Any progress that you have earned from gameplay on your existing Riot Games account will be left intact.

If you stop your Xbox Game Pass subscription you will retain all account progression but you will lose access to the agents that were yet to be unlocked. During your playtime, if Game Pass is still active, you will still be able to unlock agents and all unlocked content will be permanently available on your Riot Games ID.
