SEATTLE - June 27, 2019 - Twitch Prime is going big for Prime Day 2019 with free content giveaways for Apex Legends and EA SPORTS titles. Altogether, Twitch Prime has offered members free games and in-game content worth over $2,000 in 2019 so far. Twitch Prime is also bringing celebrities, top streamers, and Amazon Prime members together for the Twitch Prime Crown Cup featuring Apex Legends and one of the top EA SPORTS franchises, with tournaments in London and Las Vegas.
The fun kicks off July 3, when Prime members can unlock an exclusive Legend skin and weapon skin for Apex Legends. Throughout July and August, members can get their hands-on three more exclusive Apex Legends skins and content from multiple EA SPORTS titles. It's all part of Twitch Prime's mission to be the best deal in gaming, combining tremendous value with outstanding content for the best games, all year long. Members must link their Twitch Prime account with their EA account to take advantage of these in-game offers. Not a Prime member?

"This summer, we're kicking off Prime Day in a big way, with in-game items from Apex Legends and EA SPORTS, and Twitch Prime Crown Cup events in London and Las Vegas." said Ethan Evans, VP, Twitch Prime. "It's all part of our mission to make Twitch Prime one of the best deals in gaming, with monthly gaming content plus all the other benefits of Prime. We hope our members are going to love all the Prime Day content as much as we do, and we can't wait to see everyone online for the Twitch Prime Crown Cup tournaments."
In addition to the free in-game giveaways, Twitch Prime is holding two massive events. On July 13, celebrities, top streamers, and Prime members will descend on London and Las Vegas for Twitch Prime Crown Cup tournaments featuring Apex Legends and top EA SPORTS games-an eight-hour livestreamed extravaganza filled with games, stars, and frenetic, friendly contest. It all happens live on twitch.tv/twitchprime, starting at 6 p.m. BST/ 10 a.m. PDT.
As the Twitch Prime Crown Cup gets underway in London, fans will watch world-class athletes and celebrities including Olympic gold medalist runner Sir Mo Farah, legendary footballer Thierry Henry, and five-time X Games gold medalist street skateboarder Leticia Bufoni compete against each other in a top EA SPORTS title. An audience of Prime members will get up-close and personal with the stars as they cheer on their favorites live from London.
The next stop for the Twitch Prime Crown Cup is Las Vegas, where musicians and other celebrities will test their skills on the battle arena in Apex Legends. Multi-platinum music producer Murda Beatz, global platinum-selling DJ Dillon Francis, and other stars will compete to see who can stay alive the longest in an Apex Legends king-of-the-hill free-for-all. Prime members in Las Vegas will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to jump into the game to defend-or attack-their celebrity of choice.
