Last month, to help celebrate Amazon Prime Day, Twitch Prime users were given a whopping 19 free games just for being members, which included games like Pillars of Eternity and Brutal Legend. August's lineup has now been revealed, and while there may not be as many games as last month, the ones being offered are still worth checking out.
There will be a total of five free games available to Twitch Prime members for the month of August. Users can look forward to picking up Antihero, Death Squared, Jotun, SteamWorld Dig and a Wizardry bundle. The featured titles will be available for members to add to their Twitch games libraries until August 31st.
Antihero is a digital board game where players take on the role of an up-and-coming thief in a Victorian town. The goal of the game is to create and maintain the most powerful underworld guild in the city. Players will have to use their illicitly earned loot to help upgrade their guild, including hiring more ne'er-do-wells and purchasing new skills and gear. On top of the single-player campaign, there are also multiplayer modes.
Death Squared is a puzzle game that, while being able to be played solo, is best experienced with other players. The goal is to guide each robot to a goal on the level, while avoiding obstacles along the way. Jotun is an isometric action game set in Norse mythology. Along with their trusty battle axe, players will receive help from different Norse gods on their journey.
SteamWorld Dig is a Metroidvania-style action platformer that puts gamers in the role of a robotic miner who is tasked with digging up and finding treasure and resources. Like any Metroidvania game, new abilities and gadgets will be found to help with the task. Finally, the Wizardry bundle includes the sixth, seventh and eighth games in the long running first-person RPG series.
Of course, these free games aren't the only thing available to Twitch Prime members, as the service also offers in-game content as well. Some titles currently featured are Overwatch, PUBG, Call of Duty: WW2 and Warframe, with the content including things like special loot boxes or exclusive skins. There was a rumor Fortnite would be having the Archetype skin in a Prime pack, but that has since been debunked.
