Amazon's Prime Gaming service is growing at an exceptional rate
Amazon's Prime Gaming service has grown by more than 120% over the past year, with 2022's free games including incredible titles like STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Need for Speed Heat, Dead Space 2, Stellaris, Total War: Warhammer, World War Z: Aftermath, and more. Better still, 2022 is not even finished yet!
Sadly, while Amazon's Prime Gaming service offers a lot of value to existing Prime subscribers, it is worth noting here that Amazon is increasing the price of Prime in the UK and Europe, making the service significantly more expensive. That said, if Prime Gaming can give you a few extra AAA games every year, it does make Prime's pricing a lot easier to swallow.
On August 1st, Amazon will start giving away six new PC games though its Prime Gaming service. Starcraft Remastered is easily the top game of this month's list, though Recompile and ScourgeBringer are certainly games that are worth looking into. As for the others, your enjoyment of these games will come down to whether or not you enjoy their specific genres.
Here's a list of this month's free Prime Gaming titles, and a short description of each.
- StarCraft: Remastered — Command the mechanized Terrans, psi-powered Protoss and insectoid Zerg as they vie for map control of eight unique environments in this upgraded sci-fi strategy experience that pioneered the world of esports.
- Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders — In the classic point-and-click adventure game, only Zak McKracken, a reporter for the disreputable National Inquisitor can save the day. Travel back in time to 1997 and join Zak in a world in which Space Aliens have built a stupidity machine to slowly deplete every human being’s IQ to single digits.
- Beasts of Maravilla Island — Embrace the role of a young wildlife photographer who traverses Maravilla Island’s magical ecosystems to discover extraordinary creatures, learn their behaviors and most importantly, photograph their majesty.
- Recompile — Take control of a semi-sapient program struggling against deletion in the sprawling 3D world of a Mainframe. Recompile features against intense combat, tight 3D platforming, super-powered abilities and an environmental logic-based hacking mechanic.
- ScourgeBringer — Jump in to help Kyhra in this fast-paced free-moving platformer as she explores the vast unknown and slashes her way through ancient machines guarding the seal of her past and maybe the redemption of humanity.
- Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises — Plunge yourself into the world of debauched elites, alluring women and corrupted cops, while fighting for power, the ultimate currency.
