Twitch Prime Members To Receive Free Games From Amazon

Twitch Prime adding more free games with monthly subscription

This marks the first time for Twitch, which Amazon acquired back in 2014, to offer games on a regular basis. Now, the online giant will start offering free games from their archives for Prime customers to keep. However, you should be a Twitch Prime Member and you will probably have to use the Twitch Desktop App to be able to get the free games.

The first five games are Superhot, Shadow Tactics, Tales from Candlekeep, Oxenfree and Mr Shifty. Votes were then cast for your favorite of the games, and then on March 11 voting closed, a victor was picked, and Prime members got the winning game for free. This means that there won't be an expiry date on how long gamers can play them for as long as they claim them.

Twitch Prime debuted in September 2016, and is actually a part of Amazon Prime, which goes for $13 per month or $99 per year.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Reportedly Asked by Giants to Take Pay Cut
Rodgers-Cromartie appeared in 61 games with 44 starts over four seasons after signing with the Giants as a free agent in 2014. There's been talk around moving him to safety, but there's a chance that he explores the market elsewhere.

It's no surprise to long-time Twitch members, as the service does give away plenty of games and in-game content. The new perk means that a Prime membership is more valuable than it was in the past. The new initiative kicks off on March 15 and includes five indies, and is a major extension of the recent Indie Amplifier program. Shifty, Oxenfree, Shadow Tactics, Superhot, and Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation. Viewers would then vote on their favorite games, with the title receiving the most votes being awarded to Prime members at no cost. Your kids will thank you later, even though the games offered won't necessarily be the blockbuster hits in the industry.

The 2.5D beat 'em up Mr. April's lineup has also been revealed, with members getting their hands on Tales from the Borderlands, SteamWorld Dig 2, Kingsway, Tokyo 42 and Dubwars.
