Twitch's new program gives Amazon Prime subscribers free games

Starting on Thursday, Amazon Prime subscribers who have linked up their Twitch accounts, get to download a collection of free games every month.

As announced on the company blog, Free Games with Prime is a new Twitch program that will offer free games to Prime subscribers each month.

Twitch is already handing out free stuff to Twitch Prime members in the form of in-game items, ad-free viewing, channel subscriptions and the occasional game. Twitch will also bring back two of its best freebies from previous promotions, Superhot and Oxenfree, and offer one more game it hasn't given away before, Mr. Shifty.

The incident took place on United Airlines Flight 1284 from Houston , Texas to New York's LaGuardia Airport. United Airlines has apologised after a passenger's dog died Monday evening during a flight.

Welcome to Free Games with Prime. Shifty. In April, Twitch Prime subscribers will get access to Tales from the Borderlands, SteamWorld Dig 2, Kingsway, Tokyo 42 and Dubwars. Twitch says it'll deliver new free games monthly, and it confirmed with GameSpot that it will be an ongoing program, though new games may not always arrive on the first of the month.

PS. If you want to check out any of these games in action, ElegyofGames and seriouslyclara will regularly show off the Free Games with Prime through July on their streams Sundays at 6PM PT and Mondays at 8:30PM PT starting on 3/25 and 3/26 respectively.

This month's selection includes some must-play games. Twitch posted a full list of upcoming free games for the rest of March and April.
