Twitch has announced Free Games with Prime, a new program akin to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold, which grants Twitch Prime subscribers a selection of free games each month they can download and keep forever.
The program kicks off this Thursday, March 15, with a selection of five free games, including Superhot—which is also available free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers this month—and Oxenfree, which we found to be an “elegantly simple” experience that’s “like walking through a stunning painting.”
Additionally, all eight titles from the Twitch Indie Amplifier program, including Shadow Tactics and Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation, will featured as free titles over the course of the next few months.
The full lineup of Free Games with Prime for March includes:
- Shadow Tactics
- Tales from Candlekeep
- Mr. Shifty
The next wave of Free Games with Prime will be available starting April 1 and includes:
- Tales from the Borderlands
- SteamWorld Dig 2
- Tokyo 42
Read IGN’s review of Superhot for our thoughts on the FPS whose “clever time-manipulation idea delivers consistently fulfilling challenges by turning blink-of-an-eye action into carefully considered and cautious tactical decisions.”
