Riot Games and Twitch Prime Bring Players Free In-Game Loot for League of Legends
First drop of free loot for Twitch Prime members goes live today at TwitchCon 2018
San Francisco, October 26, 2018 – Today at TwitchCon 2018, Riot Games and Twitch Prime released the first in a series of free in-game loot drops in League of Legends for Twitch Prime members.
Starting now, members can receive a Summoner’s Crown Capsule*, which contains a random legendary-tier skin shard. In League of Legends, Capsules are in-game items that contain randomly awarded loot of varying rarity, from common to legendary. The Summoner’s Crown Capsule is a Twitch Prime-themed item that guarantees players a legendary skin shard, which is used to unlock some of the most desirable cosmetic character outfits in the game. A series of additional loot drops will be available starting in early 2019.
To claim the Summoner’s Crown Capsule, Twitch Prime members simply link their Twitch Prime and League of Legends accounts, then claim their loot at www.twitchprime.com.
New customers can try Twitch Prime and start a free trial at www.twitchprime.com.
“By rewarding players with legendary loot, we hope our members will agree that League of Legends is even better with Twitch Prime,” said Ethan Evans, Vice President, Twitch Prime. “We’ve teamed up with Riot Games to create an ongoing program of major drops for Twitch Prime in the months ahead. So stay tuned, we’re just getting started.”
“We’re always looking for ways to elevate the League of Legends experience for our global community. Teaming up with Twitch Prime to deliver free in-game loot drops is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Joe Tung, League of Legends Product Lead at Riot Games. “Twitch Prime takes great care of its members; we’re excited to launch this program at TwitchCon and work with them to deliver even more awesome League of Legends loot in the months to come.”
Twitch Prime members who are attending TwitchCon 2018 can also visit the Twitch Prime LAN area to play and stream League of Legends and meet their favorite broadcasters with a series of meet-and-greet opportunities all weekend long. On October 28, the TwitchCon esports stage will also host “Rumble on the Rift,” a League of Legends tournament with some of the game’s biggest streamers in one place. Twitch Prime members will also get a leveled-up TwitchCon experience all weekend long, with a free tote bag, a $10 credit at the Loot Cave (TwitchCon’s merch shop), access to a special members-only lounge, and more.
