Kickoff the month with free video games courtesy of Twitch Prime and Amazon.
Now that it’s the start of July, it’s time to take advantage of all the goodies for Amazon Prime members only, namely the free video games from Twitch. The newest crop of free games are here and ready to be played (a $97 value on Steam).
If you’re not a Prime member, you can use the online retailer’s 30-day free trial to get the goods — sign up here. And when the trial is over, you can either subscribe to Amazon Prime for just $13 a month or $119 for a year, or just cancel it and walk away. No hard feelings. Meanwhile, you also have to be a member of Twitch to join Twitch Prime, but it’s free to sign up.
Along with free video games every month, you’ll also get free level-up options for characters, boosts, upgrades, skins and more. And you can keep the games in your digital library, even if you cancel the service altogether. Win win!
To start playing, you’ll need the Amazon Games app or the Twitch Desktop app. The games can be played on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, plus Google Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV and so much more. In fact, here’s a complete list of compatible devices.

The sequel to the cult classic from the ‘90s, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil follows Joshua Fireseed, the new Turok who is tasked with defeating The Primagen, a powerful alien who wrecks havoc on Lost Land. This is one of the best first-person shooter games around.
