Twitch Prime is teaming up with EA to create a Prime Day experience like no other: the Twitch Prime Crown Cup in Las Vegas, featuring Apex Legends. Starting at 2PM PT on July 13, this year’s event brings music, movie, and streaming celebrities together with Prime members in an epic battle live on twitch.tv/twitchprime to see who will take home the title. There can be only one to wear the crown!
Kicking off with the debut of a new single by multiple Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Murda Beatz, the Las Vegas Twitch Prime Crown Cup rolls into round-by-round Apex Legends action hosted by TimTheTatman with commentary and interviews between each match provided by Kevin Smith and Jay Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob) throughout the event.
This competition also features Apex Legend and weapon skins exclusive to Twitch Prime members that are dropping just days before the event. So, make sure you’re following Twitch Prime’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram feeds to get the latest information on what’s dropping in the days leading up to the Vegas Crown Cup so you have the goods before all your friends.
Our day starts off at 2 p.m. with a Streamer Challenge, where eight special-guest Twitch streamers square off to see who will advance to the Crown Cup main event, which begins at 4:30 p.m. PT. After a few rounds of pool play, the action advances through semi-finals to the Crown Cup Finals, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. before the evening closes out with a trophy ceremony and music set by Murda Beatz.
For a sneak peek at the Crown Cup action, be sure to tune in to the practice rounds July 11 at 8:30 p.m. PT and July 12 at 6 p.m. PT live on twitch.tv/twitchprime as our celebrities take their first steps into the world of Apex Legends with our guest streamers. You won’t want to miss out on the round-by-round commentary as the celebrities stop by the broadcast booth when they’re not playing, commenting on the success… and epic failures… of their fellow stars.
