Amazon on Monday rebranded Twitch Prime, its four-year-old premium video game streaming service, to Prime Gaming.
The move to rebrand Twitch Prime to Prime Gaming is to bring its branding in line with other Amazon products and services such as Prime Video, Prime Music, and Prime Reading for ebooks, digital magazines, and more.
Prime Gaming, which is a part of Amazon Prime subscription, aims to bring several benefits to its subscribers by offering free monthly games, exclusive in-game content, a free monthly Twitch subscription you can drop on a favorite streamer, and other advantages for those who enjoy games.
With the rebranding, Prime Gaming promises access to exclusive content on more than 20 popular games worth hundreds of dollars in value for PC, mobile devices, and consoles, which are free to play. These include some classic titles as well as indie games.
Some of the free games include Baseball Stars 2, SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, Metal Slug 2, Treachery in Beatdown City, King of the Monsters, Pulstars, Fatal Fury Special, Chroma Squad, Truberbrook and more.
“Prime members can claim new in-game content for Grand Theft Auto Online, Red Dead Online, Apex Legends, EA SPORTS FIFA 20, League of Legends, and more than 20 other popular PC, console, and mobile games, worth hundreds of dollars in value. Plus, they can claim a collection of PC games for free every month that are theirs to keep forever,” Amazon said in a press release.
Commenting on the move, Larry Plotnick, general manager of Prime Gaming, said, “Prime members already get the best of TV, movies, and music, and now we’re expanding our entertainment offerings to include the best of gaming. We’re giving customers new content that makes playing their favorite games on every platform even better. So no matter what kind of games you love, and no matter where you play them, they’ll be even better with Prime Gaming.”
Amazon also bragged of its agreements with many of the world’s biggest game publishers, including Riot Games, Roblox Corp, and Rockstar Games, Prime Gaming that will offer members incredible value every month, across a broad catalog of games.
