“Unboxing Prime Day events are designed to say ‘thank you’ to Prime members, with great experiences that aren’t available anywhere else,” Evans told Variety. “With the Twitch Prime Unboxing Prime Day event we wanted to celebrate our shared love of gaming with the Twitch community of broadcasters, provide members with new PUBG in-game loot, and just have a big party featuring a set of new music from deadmau5.”
Twitch Prime members will also get a glimpse at upcoming exclusive “PUBG” in-game content.
Artist deadmau5 will also be performing at the Unboxing Prime Day event, and will feature music from his new album, “Mau5ville: level 1.”
