Twitch Prime subscribers will get free monthly games, starting this week

So, get ready to see more news about Twitch Prime and don't forget to stay tuned for more free games in the future as we will keep a close eye on Free Games with Prime. But Amazon is taking things to a whole new level with the new Free Games With Prime program. Leveraging the online retail giant's acquisition of Twitch from three and a half years ago, Amazon is going to start gifting games to Prime subscribers, through Twitch, each and every month.

The first wave of games will come on Thursday March 15 and will include Superhot, Oxenfree, Shadow Tactics, Mr. The eight titles of the company's Indie Amplifier initiative will be given out over the next few months in the program, including victor Shadow Tactics and Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation. This would contrast already established initiatives on console, such as Games with Gold on Xbox or games with PlayStation Plus.

Twitch users who don't have Twitch Prime, unfortunately, will miss out, so if you don't want to pay for these games, this subscription is certainly appealing. The next games will be offered in the following months.

Previous freebies given away by Twitch have requires users to download the Twitch desktop application, however the platform hasn't revealed how it will be distributing its games just yet.

Both March and April's Free Game with Prime selection will feature five games.

The indie game downloads will be every month, and announcements for May will probably be coming soon enough. However, from April 1st onwards, more titles will be added to their offering including games such as Tales from the Borderlands, SteamWorld Dig 2, and many more. Twitch is calling this a "levelling-up" of your Twitch Prime accounts.

I have not played Superhot on the PC, but it is one of my favorite titles in VR using the Vive.
