Amazon and Twitch have teamed up to bring new game related benefits to Amazon Prime users.
Amazon Prime subscribers will now receive gaming benefits with their subscriptions. These benefits include free delivery on release day pre-orders. Prime users will also receive a selection of free digital games and in-game loot such as character skins and items.
Starting from the 30th of September and until November 6th, Twitch Prime users can claim their first benefit: Tyrande Whisperwind, a Hearthstone heroine as well as a custom card pack. In October, a Twitch Prime skin for Smite and a free copy of Streamline, a new game from Proletariat Studios, will be available to claim.
Amazon will also be adding Twitch related goodies: a free monthly subscription to a Twitch channel of your choice. Twitch Prime includes nearly all the benefits that Twitch Turbo did, Twitch’s previous subscription. Twitch streamers will also receive payment this way. Ad-free Twitch viewing, special chat badges, expanded chat colours, and custom emotes are all included.
If you’re already an Amazon Prime member and live in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, France, Italy, or Spain, you can start taking advantage of Twitch Prime by linking your Amazon and Twitch accounts HERE. Despite the new benefits, a Prime subscription still costs $99 a year, or $10.99 a month.
The two companies are celebrating the launch by promising to donate $100,000 to Game Changer Charity for every 100,000 new Twitch channel subscriptions.
