There are also 5 Apex Packs to claim, with the whole bundle available to download until April 20, at which time it will be removed.
“Look up, Legends – a special care package is on the way. Now through April 20, Twitch Prime members can grab an exclusive Omega Point Pathfinder skin that has our robot pal looking perfect in purple. Plus, you’ll snag a supply drop of five Apex Packs filled with cosmetics for your Legends and gear,” a message from EA confirms.
Fans will need to link their EA Account with their Twitch Prime account to claim all the Apex Legends loot on offer.
ORIGINAL: A new Twitch Prime pack for Apex Legends has been announced today during a live stream event.
It seemed inevitable that such a bundle would be announced, following the success of Apex Legends with gamers and as a viewing product.
It has proven a big hit on the Twitch platform, bringing in a large number of viewers and attracting streamers who can support it on a long-term scale.
And it was recently leaked that a Twitch Prime bundle for Apex Legends was in the works, including a new Legends skin for fans.
It has now been confirmed that the deal has been officially teased during a recent Twitch Rival stream.
It doesn’t appear that the new deal has been made available yet by Twitch but is expected to be released soon.
This new Prime pack will include a Pathfinder skin and five Apex packs which can be used on whatever platform you play.
For those that don’t know, Apex Packs are packs of cosmetic items or crafting currency available in Apex Legends.
EA has confirmed that they will never include any items that offer a gameplay advantage (there is no way to purchase a gameplay advantage in Apex Legends through any mechanic).
Packs are often given as rewards for reaching a new Player Level, with players able to earn a total of 45 Apex Packs from Player Levels 1 – 100.
There is also bad luck protection built into them, meaning that a player cannot open more than 30 Apex Packs without receiving a Legendary item.
For fans interested in scooping up one of these new packs, they will need to have some kind of Twitch Prime subscription, be it paid or a free trial.
Fans who own an Amazon Prime membership can also use Twitch Prime, which means you can access the new loot coming to Apex Legends.
Fans who have Twitch Prime will need to connect their EA Account to make it possible to claim items.
Twitch Prime is included with Amazon Prime in the US, Mexico, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
Twitch Prime is also included with Prime Video in over 200 other countries and territories.
So fans should certainly check out what options they have before deciding whether to subscribe to Twitch Prime.
