Twitch has announced a new benefit for Prime members that provides a set of new games for free every month. Amazon first integrated Prime into Twitch, the live streaming video platform that they aquired, over a year ago with Twitch Prime. Prime member benefits on Twitch already include ad-free viewing, one free channel subscription, and free in-game loot. Now free games to keep forever are also included.
The free games already available for the month of March are Superhot, Shadow Tactics, Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation, Oxenfree, and Mr. Shifty. To get the games, link your Amazon Prime and Twitch account together if you haven’t done so yet and then click the crown icon in the upper right corner at Twitch.tv. Once you’ve claimed the free games, they’ll be yours forever. On April 1st, those free games will be gone if you don’t claim them now. April’s free games will be Tales from the Borderlands, SteamWorld Dig 2, Kingsway, Tokyo 42, and Dubwars.
Is there a monthly charge for Twitch?
No, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, then Twitch Prime included for free.
Hmmmm. I’ve hard of Twitch and Twitch Prime is free for Prime members and apparently there are free games. Where can I play those games?
All of the games are for Windows PC only. You download them using the Twitch Desktop app at https://app.twitch.tv/
Are any of the games FPS games like say Far Cry or are they all for online play?
Nice! Not that I game much anymore. I also seemed to have Devil May Cry HD available to claim.
Devil May Cry HD is listed as the free game for Mar 6 – Apr 6
It is below the other games and says “All Twitch Prime members receive Devil May Cry HD, one part of the Devil May Cry HD Collection, as a free gift.”
So which is the best one to get, I assume we only get to pick one of the 5 or 6.
All free, take as many or as few as you want. You can claim them now and download them later.
