Apex Legends has been a frequent fixture on the top games list on Twitch since its launch earlier this month. Now, Twitch and Respawn Entertainment have made their partnership official, by coming together to offer an exclusive legendary Pathfinder skin and five Apex packs for free, through the Twitch Prime rewards program.
The exclusive outfit is a Pathfinder skin in Twitch’s iconic purple, with the Apex Packs being from the game’s randomized cosmetic loot system. Each pack contains 3 random items. These include character skins, cosmetic items, and crafting materials.
The partnership makes sense considering Apex Legends is racking up literally millions of hours of viewing time on Twitch. The free-to-play battle royale title has taken the gaming world by storm this month, and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Whether you’ve already jumped on the bandwagon, or want to see what all the fuss is about, then claiming your loot is easy.
Assuming you have a Twitch Prime account already, simply log into the Twitch website and click on the huge Pathfinder banner. If you cannot see the banner, you can also find the details by clicking the crown in the top right corner of the screen and scrolling down the list of current offers.
Clicking the reward information will then take you to another login screen, this time for EA. Simply log into your EA account to link the two accounts together and then click the button to get your rewards. Both the packs and the skin will appear in your game the next time you launch it.
While this is the first Apex Legends reward to appear on Twitch, it’s just the latest battle royale game to have partnered with the streaming giant. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite have also previously offered rewards to Twitch Prime users.
Twitch’s subscription service comes standard with Amazon Prime, and just requires you to link your Twitch account with your Amazon Prime account.
The Twitch Prime program offers free games and in-game loot each month for gamers. It also allows you to subscribe to one Twitch channel per month for free, with the channel owner still receiving their usual commission.
It’s worth noting that Twitch Prime offers are usually available only for a limited time, so act quickly if you want your exclusive loot.
Apex Legends is available now for free on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
