About a couple of weeks ago, Epic Games and People Can Fly partnered up with Sony Interactive Entertainment in order to give free items to PlayStation Plus subscribers for use in the multiplayer sandbox survival title Fortnite Battle Royale. Now, it looks as if the publisher and developer are teaming up with another premium service to offer additional goodies at no extra cost, with the companies forming an alliance with Twitch Prime to offer those with an account some free loot to have in the game.
Calling it the Fortnite Twitch Prime Pack, Epic Games is giving players of both the Battle Royale mode and Save the World variation of the game who have a subscription to the premium service the chance to nab items such as new heroes, new cosmetic items, and even 4 exclusive Twitch chat emojis. Fans can get a glimpse of some of the goodies in the image directly below, with Save the World getting the heroes Havoc and Sub Commando Jonesy, while Battle Royale players get the Havoc Outfit and Back Bling, plus the Sub Commander Outfit and Slipstream Glider.
For the uninitiated, Twitch Prime routinely provides free items and games for those who are Amazon Prime members, so anyone that happens to be a subscriber to the premium service will be able to take advantage of this offer for Fortnite. Outside of Epic Games’ popular shooter, the next free game for Twitch Prime members is Devil May Cry HD Collection, but it won’t be available to claim until March 6 due to “unforeseen technical circumstances.”
Bearing all of this in mind, it will be interesting to see if this special offer for Fortnite will successfully turn more gamers into paying Twitch Prime subscribers, as that’s undoubtedly one of the underlying goals within this promotion. After all, the free-to-play title has an extremely large player base that can be tapped into to sign up for the service, as Fortnite Battle Royale has even made fans of celebrities such as Roseanne Barr, who recently revealed that she has achieved 20 Victory Royale wins.
Fortnite is available now in early access for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
