Pillars Of Eternity Free To Amazon / Twitch Prime Members Today
CRPGs never go out of style.
The lead-up to Amazon's Prime Day has officially begun. While Twitch normally gives a handful of free PC games to Amazon/Twitch Prime members each month, this month the company is going all out and giving Prime members one game a day between now and July 18. With three games also being offered for free all month, Prime members will receive a total of 21 free games in July. The first freebie is Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition.
The game is only free until July 4, so make sure to grab it quickly. To get your free copy, you'll first have to link your Twitch and Amazon Prime accounts. Then, head to Twitch.tv and click the crown icon next to the search bar. That opens a drop-down menu where you'll find your free game along with any other freebies you haven't collected yet. Just note you'll need the Twitch desktop app to access your game.
Pillars of Eternity is an isometric RPG in the vein of Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment. Released in 2015, it takes place in a fantasy world in which babies have begun being born without souls. You're tasked with assembling a party and finding out why. The game received high marks from critics and players alike and has spawned a sequel.
GameSpot's Pillars of Eternity review awarded it 8/10. "Pillars of Eternity effortlessly ensnares you, both by reminding you of the places you've been, and by showing you things you didn't expect," it reads. "It is not changing the future, but it is repackaging the past in a way that deserves praise while falling into a few old traps--and creating a few of its own--along the way. You can easily dodge these traps, however, and emerge victorious in a world where the gods show you both scorn and favor, and it's up to you to hew your own path."
