Twitch Prime Members Can Nab These Six Free Games in May

It's about time you played through Psychonauts, right?


Who doesn't love free games? If you hate free games, stop reading now. If you're looking to add a whole bunch more to your collection, you might want to make sure you're still a Twitch Prime subscriber. On May 1, you'll be able to get not one, not two, but six new free games that are yours forever as part of the Free Game with Prime collection. You can make them yours from May 1 throughout the end of the month, and there are some great choices up for grabs this time around.

You can pick up Psychonauts, Clustertruck, Gone Home, Titan Souls, High Hell, and I, Hope to beef up your game collection. It's worth the trouble of downloading all the games (except maybe the disappointing Gone Home, which is an amalgam of missed opportunities), but if you don't want to take the time to do so you can watch the games streamed via Twitch partners ElegyOfGames and SeriouslyClara.

For the uninitiated, Twitch Prime is the premium option for Twitch members that you get with your Amazon Prime membership. You get ad-free viewing, a new channel subscription every 30 days, in-game loot, and all Twitch Prime benefits as well. The selection of May's free game is a great offering in my opinion, but getting more free games every month can't really be beat. If you watch a lot of Twitch and like trying new titles out each month, this is definitely a subscription you'll want to add to your list.

      Being required to play them though Twitch desktop app is annoying though. I totally forgot about the previous batch of free games until I saw this post.

          You can claim them from the twitch website too. No need to open the app until you want to actually install something.

        It's really not that bad, all the app does is install the game then you can launch without the app afaik.

        It is incredibly annoying. More than once I played one of my twitch games and when I came back turns out I was unwittingly tuned to this crap stream for hours and hours.

          That doesn’t seem cool. I have a data cap with my ISP. That would piss me off.

        Annoying yes but also clearly the whole reason for the promotion.
