Sometimes a deal that seems too good to be true is actually true. This is one of those times: the entire month of December is Amazon give away a whopping eight games and tons of free loot for Amazon Prime members. Not a member? Believe it or not, you can still get the goods. Sign up for the free 30-day Prime trial here and you can take advantage of this free offer. After the trial period is over, you can either subscribe to Amazon Prime for $13 a month (or $119 a year) or just cancel altogether. No hard feelings.
Twitch fans may remember all the free games they used to give out. Good news: they still do! It’s just under a different name now: Prime Gaming. Here’s the deal: Amazon Prime gives video games to the house every month. Exact titles vary from month to month, and sometimes there are duplicates – but that just means you have a chance to catch up if you missed out before!
And even if you cancel the service, you can keep the games in your digital library. It’s a great offer!
In addition, you will receive a ton of in-game gear, too. Currencies, cosmetic bonus packs and much more are all part of the Prime Gaming package. Now you can get yourself a new skin Battlefield 2042a figure in war frame and a monthly booster to help you fight Dark Flaw Fantasy Star Online 2.
Scroll for this month’s free video games:
You don’t have to go under spinch to enjoy it, but you’ll definitely need lightning-fast reflexes. The game encompasses this old-school difficulty in six different levels. Full of psychedelic colors, unique levels, and even neon spiders, this is an odd game – but it’s one you’ll likely enjoy.
desert child is an interesting mixture of racing game and simulator. The racing mechanics are deep, with plenty of combat mechanics to help you gain an edge over your opponents, as well as a variety of different buffs to use. Old school anime fans may like Cowboy Bebop and Akira will see the influence in the art style, while the lo-fi hip-hop soundtrack will have your head bobbing along.
Brothers: Story of Two Sons is a touching story about two sons who go on a quest to save their father from an illness. It’s an action-adventure game with an isometric perspective, but what really sets it apart is the control scheme. You play as both brothers at the same time, controlling each with a different controller stick. It’s a scheme like no other game, and it takes some getting used to. The combination of touching storyline and entertaining gameplay will keep you coming back to this game for hours.
Card game fans, rejoice! Banner of the Ruins is a great real-time deck building strategy combo that is a lot of fun. Each character has a different set of cards, and the synergy between cards and abilities will keep players entertained. Fans call it a worthy successor kill the tower which is high praise indeed. Throw in a bunch of DLC options and Banner of the Ruins is a great free choice for fans of deck building.
If you remember them Carmen San Diego Games of past times, then you will be somewhat familiar with what Rose puzzle 2 brings to the table. Playing as Rose, you’ll solve quests and take jobs throughout the Faerie Realm as you slowly unravel the mystery that threatens it. Imagine Sherlock Holmes meets Tinkerbell. The game has many achievements, a charming art style, and an atmosphere that’s fun for kids and adults alike.
The Great American Circus is another deck builder, but with a twist: instead of fighting enemies, you fight the audience… as a circus ringleader. Pick cards that will help you put on the best show and take this title right out of the hands of PT Barnum. There is also a lot of DLC to expand the game! It’s a great twist on the usual deck building strategy, and it’s free from now until January 1st.
If you are a fan of myst or other relaxed puzzlers, Doors: paradox is the perfect choice for you. Each level is a 3D diorama with hidden clues and objects that will help you solve the game’s puzzle. It’s not a terribly long game (well, depending on how long it takes you to solve the puzzles), but you’ll get around five hours of gameplay out of it. Not bad, especially if your backlog is already overwhelming.
Few games have the same weight or impact as quake. As a quintessential shooter, it shares much of the same DNA as demise in terms of its dark imagination and hyper violent gameplay. It’s definitely not for kids, but anyone who played it years ago can now revisit an old classic with new and updated graphics. The best, quake also includes both of the expansion packs introduced during its lifecycle, so you get even more gaming fun with your purchase.
Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders $25 or more.)
