Twitch Prime is now called Prime Gaming

You’ve probably already heard, but Amazon is retiring the Twitch Prime name. Now the service, which gives premium Amazon users some extra gaming-related goodies, is called Prime Gaming.

The announcement, which was leaked ahead of time by none other than Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, was made earlier today, but despite the new name and logo, nothing else has really changed. Amazon Prime members will still be able to enjoy free content for their favourite games each month and have the opportunity to use their free subscription on a streamer of their choice.

“Prime members already get the best of TV, movies, and music, and now we’re expanding our entertainment offerings to include the best of gaming,” Larry Plotnick, general manager of Prime Gaming says in the press release. “We’re giving customers new content that makes playing their favourite games on every platform even better.”

To celebrate the rebrand, new and exclusive content for Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption Online, Apex Legends, FIFA 20, League of Legends, and more has been made available.

More opportunities will also be made to streamers to grow their viewership, according to documents obtained by Slasher.
