Free PC Games Out Now For Amazon / Twitch Prime Members In The US
Set them free.
August is here, which means Amazon/Twitch Prime members can now grab the latest batch of free games from Twitch. Between August 1-31, Prime members can download seven games: Antihero, Death Squared, Jotun: Valhalla Edition, SteamWorld Dig, and a bundle that contains Wizardry 6, 7, and 8. That's a generous lineup, particularly after we got 21 games in July.
To get the games, you first have to link your Amazon Prime and Twitch accounts. Once you do, head to Twitch.tv on a desktop computer and click the crown icon near the search bar. There you'll find a dropdown menu with buttons to claim the games for free. They're yours to keep forever, even if you cancel Amazon Prime down the line. All you need is the Twitch desktop app to install them.
The games themselves were mostly well-received when they came out. Much like the recent God of War, Jotun: Valhalla Edition takes place in the realm of Norse mythology. You play as Thora, a warrior who must explore the frigid world and solve puzzles to prove her worth to the gods. In SteamWorld Dig, you explore a massive underground world, fighting enemies and collecting valuable treasure to help you upgrade your abilities. Finally, the Wizardry Bundle contains the "Dark Savant" trilogy of first-person RPGs.
Antihero is set in in the Victorian underworld, where you're tasked with assembling a thief's guild. It's a turn-based strategy game in which you convince criminals and street urchins straight out of Dickens to join your criminal empire. Puzzle fans may enjoy Death Squared, a co-op game that has you moving colorful cubes around a dense map.
