Twitch Prime adds free games to service

Twitch Prime is introducing a new feature this week that will let subscribers access a selection of PC games for free.

Twitch said it will make 10 games available in the next two months which Twitch Prime members will be able to “keep forever”. Titles include Shadow TacticsTales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation, and Mr. Shifty.

Amazon-owned Twitch rolled out its premium Twitch Prime service globally to more than 200 last June, having first introduced the service in a handful of markets in October 2016.

Twitch Prime offers users: free game ‘loot’, such as characters, vehicles and skins; ad-free viewing of Twitch content; exclusive emotes and more chat colours; and discounts on new-release games sold by Amazon during the pre-order period and for the first two weeks after launch.

Twitch is a video platform and community for videogame enthusiasts. Amazon acquired it for US$970 million in cash in August 2014.
