Today, Twitch is unveiling a new experience that gets great games in your hands faster, rewards you with goodies, AND lets you support your favorite streamers. Now, when a streamer is playing a game available on Twitch, you'll be able to purchase it directly from his or her channel page. You can learn more about Twitch Crates here.
Twitch is starting with about 50 titles, and they'll keep on adding new games. The games you can get on Twitch now include Darkest Dungeon, Enter the Gungeon, Firewatch, Nuclear Throne, The Banner Saga 2, Paladins, For Honor, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and more. Buying games on Twitch allows you to support your favorite broadcaster, as Twitch will share 5% of the purchase price with Partnered Streamers that have opted into their commerce program when you buy from their channel page.
Additionally, for games or in-game items that cost $4.99 or more, you'll earn a Twitch Crate that includes randomly generated rewards such as emotes, badges, and Bits. To celebrate this awesome launch, Twitch is giving you a chance to win prizes to enhance your gaming experience! From now through the end of May, each time you make a purchase that qualifies for a Twitch Crate, you'll earn an invitation for a chance to win sweet gaming and streaming gear.
