Amazon Prime Is Giving Out Free Card Packs for NFT Game ‘Gods Unchained’
Amazon Prime subscribers can now claim free in-game packs of cards for the online trading card game Gods Unchained, according to an announcement from Immutable Games.
The Amazon Prime Gaming portal has the first monthly reward up for grabs, containing 5 Rare Core Packs and one Core Domain Pack for Prime subscribers to claim. According to a blog post, Gods Unchained will run the promotion for six months, with a new collection of free in-game content to claim each month.
While Gods Unchained is built around NFTs minted on Immutable X, an Ethereum scaling network, an Immutable representative confirmed to Decrypt’s GG that the cards included in the free packs for Amazon Prime subscribers are not tokenized as NFTs. They are in-game cards that will be assigned to the user’s Immutable account.
However, they can be turned into NFTs. Gods Unchained lets players “fuse” two or more of the same common “core” in-game cards into a higher-quality NFT version, which can be traded via the Immutable X network. So while Amazon isn’t giving away NFTs in this case, players may still be able to yield NFTs from the offering.

Amazon Prime Gaming has collaborated with various NFT games—including NFL Rivals, Mojo Melee, Brawlers, and My Pet Hooligan—to offer exclusive in-game content to subscribers. In some cases, the packs include actual NFTs, while others just have non-tokenized items.
The tie-up with Amazon comes alongside the launch of Gods Unchained’s second in-game season, called Far Horizons, which introduces new gameplay mechanics and an expansion card set titled Tides of Fate.

“We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Amazon Prime Gaming,” said Daniel Paez, Vice President and Executive Producer of Gods Unchained at Immutable Games. “Season 2 offers a new chapter in the game’s ever-evolving story that will introduce sweeping changes to the meta and players’ strategies.”
The 142-card Tides of Fate expansion adds new abilities called God Powers and a “manasurge” feature that boosts cards under certain conditions, matching the set’s Atlantis theme, Paez explained. The set also advances an in-game storyline focused on a battle between mech and dragon factions over powerful crystals.

In addition, Gods Unchained will help support content creators via a new program that provides up to 6,000 GODS tokens (about $2,550 worth at present) per month worth of in-game tokens as rewards to each eligible creator for sharing videos and strategies, per the announcement.
Gods Unchained is currently available on Windows and Mac and is slated to release on iOS and Android with a soft launch later this year.
