Twitch Prime adding more free games with monthly subscription

Sure these games will likely just be indie titles, but the streaming giant thrives on engagement and one of the main ways to entice new subscriptions and keep current subscribers is through freebies.

Twitch has announced that Twitch Prime members (that is, Amazon Prime members who've linked their Twitch accounts) will now receive free games every month as part of their subscription, starting Thursday, March 15th. There will be five games given away this month which includes Superhot, Shadow Tactics, Tales from Candlekeep, Oxenfree, and Mr. Shift, and another five will be given away in the following month.

We're digging into our archives to bring you the best of our previously released games, starting with a pair of critically acclaimed titles: Superhot and Oxenfree. In April, the next collection of games will be: Dubwars, Kingsway, SteamWorld Dig 2, Tales from the Borderlands, and Tokyo 42. All five of these games will be available to Prime members until March 31. This is the first time Amazon and Twitch have used their partnership to hand out games on a regular basis. Now Twitch seems to be getting in on the action for Twitch Prime users.


The good news is that if you're a Twitch Prime subscriber, free games are something you can look out for.

If you haven't subscribed to Twitch Prime yet - which goes for a very reasonable $12 a month or so, not including extra subscriptions to streamers - here's yet another reason why you should join up! In the coming months, you can expect to see the remainder of the Indie Amplifier games, such as Tumblestone and High Hell.
