Despite indications that a monthly bonus that many League of Legends players hoped for might be gone for good.
After the current reward period, League of Legends players will no longer be eligible for Prime Gaming capsules, according to a conversation that YouTube creator Matty Love Gaming had with an Amazon employee. This would mark the conclusion of a nearly two-year-long program where Amazon Prime members could redeem monthly capsules for League of Legends full of RP, champion shards, a skin, and more.
Riot Games' agreement with Amazon is only expected to last until December 2022, according to an employee. The purpose of the extension of the claim date for the current capsule until February 16 appears to be to ensure that players who have not yet claimed the final capsule do so in plenty of time.
The employee was assured that the two companies would "develop more content in the future," although they were unable to provide any specifics. It is also unknown if Riot's other titles, including VALORANT and Legends of Runeterra, will suffer similar fates in the near future.
Players in a Reddit thread discussing this conversation noted that this decision may be related to the recent availability of Riot titles on Xbox Game Pass, where players can earn various in-game bonuses for connecting their Riot account. There is no indication that this has influenced the Prime Gaming program.
Riot did not respond to Dot Esports about the current partnership with Prime Gaming, nor has it provided any information regarding any future collaborations between the two.
