Want free games? Who wouldn’t? We’re talking $90 worth of free video games for the month of October courtesy of Amazon and the live-streaming service Twitch—for Prime members only.
Not a Prime member? Amazon offers a 30-day free trial, so if you want to take advantage of all of these free games—sign up here. Once the trial is over, you can either subscribe to Amazon Prime for $13 a month or $119 per year, or just cancel it altogether. No hard feelings. You have to be a Twitch subscriber to join Twitch Prime, but it’s free to sign up too.
Along with free games that change out every month, you’ll get free level-up options for characters, boosts, skins, upgrades and more. You can also score a treasure-trove of free SNK games, including Art of Fighting 2, Blazing Star, Fatal Fury Special, The King of Fighters 2000 and 2002, Pulstar and Samurai Shodown II. And you can keep the games in your digital library even if you cancel the service. Win-win!
To start gameplay, you’ll need the Amazon Games app or the Twitch Desktop app. The games can be played on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, plus Google Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV, Android TV and more. Check out a complete list of compatible devices.
