For the past couple of years, Riot Games and Amazon have maintained a partnership that has seen fans of the developer's titles, through the latter’s Prime Gaming subscription, gain access to a ton of free rewards.
With the success of many of their recent launches, and with their esports scenes growing strong, the companies have announced a new long-term deal that will not only turn Prime Gaming into a global sponsor for Riot Games’ esports but also offer bigger and better rewards for all of Riot’s titles.
Valorant x Prime Gaming rewards
Prime Gaming rewards for Valorant are nothing new, since the game's release players have been able to get a hold of a number of exclusive cosmetics in the shape of sprays, player cards and gunbuddies.
But now, thanks to this new partnership the rewards are going to be even greater, starting in January of next year, players can expect at least "two weapon skins, two calling cards, four Gunbuddies, and four sprays".
“Since the beginning of our collaboration with Prime Gaming for League in 2018, we’ve teamed up to give away tens of millions of Skins, Skin Shards, and more. As we launched new games, Prime Gaming grew with us to deliver in-game content for players across our new titles,” said Sylvia Ko, Corporate Business Development Lead for Riot Games.
“Now, in Prime Gaming we have a partner that shares our focus in making it better to be a player, not only through games, but also through broader entertainment experiences players would want to engage in, including Arcane and our esports.”
