The online multiplayer survival-shooter has masterfully managed to increase downloads while maintaining its active player pool of millions by rewarding fans with new weapons, map locations, skins, and gameplay updates on a weekly basis. The ceaseless torrent of updates keeps the battle royale-style game from getting stale, and routinely stokes new hype within Twitch and YouTube fandom communities. In the past week alone, Epic Games—the developer behind Fortnite—has announced an Avengers: Infinity War crossover with Marvel, and yesterday (May 9) they announced a new perk for players: a free outfit, backpack, pickaxe, and emote for Twitch Prime subscribers.
How to get a free skin and other loot in Fortnite
To access the exclusive Fortnite loot, you need to first be a Twitch Prime subscriber, which is free if you’re already an Amazon Prime member.
