If you play Fortnite, have you considered linking your Amazon Prime Gaming account to this game?
While that might sound like something you don’t need to do, you’re missing out on a lot of benefits if you don’t go ahead.
What can you gain? You can make use of free gifts and even unlock different aspects of the game.
Previously, there have been interesting loot for Fortnite players to make use of via Amazon Prime Gaming and Twitch Prime. If you want to achieve this, you’ll have to first set up a Twitch Prime account.
What Is Twitch Prime?
Before you can start, you need to know more about Twitch Prime.
Twitch basically provides streaming video from a variety of broadcasters. It also has a chatroom for members where they can chat with other users and the broadcasters.
Being a Twitch Prime member means you’ll have access to a variety of free games as well as in-game content for some popular games.
How To Connect Twitch To Amazon Prime
This is really easy. Just go to the Twitch website and choose “Connect your Twitch account.” Then, sign into your Amazon account. Sign into your Twitch account and click “Confirm.” This allows you to claim your new rewards!
What Is Fortnite?
Okay, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely heard about the hype surrounding the online game, Fortnite.
But maybe you’ve never played it before or you’re not sure if it’s something you’d even want to play and connect to your Amazon Prime.
In that case, here’s the lowdown on Fortnite:
It’s a world filled with different types of experiences, such as competing on the island to be the last player standing or just spending time with friends at concerts. You get to create the type of world you want.
There are three main game modes you can enjoy on Fortnite, and knowing about these is important so that you can make the most of connecting the game to your Amazon Prime subscription. These modes are:
1. Battle Royale, which is a free game in which 100 players fight each other in order to be the last person standing.
2. Save The World, which is a shooter survival game for up to four players where you’ll need to fight zombie-like creatures and build fortifications.
3. Fortnite Creative, in which you will be able to have total freedom to create your own battle arenas and worlds.
How To Connect Twitch Prime To Fortnite
To enjoy extra benefits while playing Fortnite, you will need to connect Twitch Prime to Fortnite.
Luckily, if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you will automatically be able to make use of Twitch Prime. Here’s what you need to do.
- Go to the Fortnite page on Twitch Prime. Note that Twitch Prime is now called Prime Gaming, but it’s essentially the same thing.
- Choose the box that’s for Twitch Prime users, and login.
- Now you can link your Epic Games account with your Prime account.
- Go to the streaming platform’s homepage and choose the crown symbol – you’ll find it in the top right corner next to your account name.
- Claim each Fortnite pack separately by logging in each time.
- Go to your locker and you’ll see the goods there.
What Loot Can You Gain?
The loot you’ll get includes a glider as well as outfits for Battle Royale, two exclusive heroes, and four Twitch chat emotes.
How cool to be able to gain new characters! While you might wonder what else is in the pack, it’s good to know that there have been two Twitch Prime Fortnite packs which have already been released. Here’s a rundown of what players were able to find in them.
Pack One contains:
- Instigator Pickaxe
- Havoc Outfit and Back Bling
- Sub Commander Outfit and Slipstream Glider
- Save the World Heroes: Havoc and Sub Commando
- 4 Twitch Chat Emotes: #1, Bush, Llama and Skull
Pack Two contains:
- Trailblazer Outfit
- True North Back Bling
- Tenderizer Pickaxe
- Freestylin’ Emote
If you find that you’ve previously tried to claim your loot but it didn’t show up immediately, don’t worry. Some users have previously stated that the loot took about an hour or two before being displayed.
It will also show up in your game, so start playing the game after claiming the loot and you’ll see it appear in gameplay.
Um, What About Pack 3?
If you’re really into the idea of enjoying extra gameplay with your Fortnite Twitch packs, it might dishearten you to learn that a third pack has not been released.
It was rumored to be set for release towards the end of 2018, but that didn’t happen. We will have to wait and see if there will be more packs released. Here’s hoping!
The great news about the Twitch Fortnite loot is that once you have redeemed it, it’s yours to own forever. However, the packs are not available forever unless claimed. After their release, you have a certain amount of time in which you can claim the content.
You also can’t go back and claim old Fornite packs – you can only claim what is currently available. So, if you’re new to the Fortnite Twitch party, unfortunately you’ll have to wait for other packs to be released so you can get in on the fun.
How Is Twitch Changing?
Earlier we mentioned that Amazon has changed the name of its Twitch to Prime Gaming. However, it will continue to work in the same way, and will continue to offer exclusive in-game content.
There are extra benefits to Prime Gaming, such as that it could be used by Amazon to expand its role in the gamer market. Amazon is trying its hand at cloud gaming, such as by launching its own cloud gaming service, and it’s started a cloud gaming platform called Luna.
What Are Other Gaming Packs You Can Get On Prime Gaming?
If you’re upset about not being able to claim Fortnite packs right now, don’t worry. You can make use of other great games, so make sure you visit the Prime Gaming website.
There’s a “games and loot” section where you’ll be able to see what’s currently being offered. Here are some cool games and their current loot.
