To celebrate the launch of Twitch Prime in over 200 countries and territories, we are bringing you some seriously exclusive loot! Starting today Twitch Prime members can get exclusive Twitch-themed apparel in one of the most played games on Twitch; PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS!

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback. Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor. This realistic, high tension game is set on a massive 8x8 km island with an enormous level of detail.

“PlayerUnknown” aka Brendan Greene, is a pioneer of the Battle Royale genre. As the creator of the Battle Royale game-mode found in the ARMA series and H1Z1 : King of the Kill, Greene is co-developing the game with the veteran team at Bluehole to create the most diverse and robust Battle Royale experience to date.
