If you have a Twitch Prime membership, you’re in for a treat.

Twitch is continuing to upgrade the perks of having a Twitch Prime membership, and the latest perk is the addition of a bunch of free games that can be redeemed via the service from tomorrow.

Twitch Prime Membership holders can grab free copies of Superhot and Oxenfree starting tomorrow, March 15.

A further eight games will be made available over the next few months. The games Prime members can expect to get in March are as follows…

  • Superhot
  • Shadow Tactics
  • Tales from Candlekeep
  • Oxenfree
  • Mr. Shifty

In April members can then expect another five freebies:

  • Tales from the Borderlands
  • SteamWorld Dig 2
  • Kingsway
  • Tokyo 42
  • Dubwars

There’s some great games on this list. Superhot is one of the best and most original games of 2016, Shadow Tactics is a great strategy RPG and Tales from the Borderlands is arguably Telltale’s best work – and that’s just a few of them.

The games will be free and yours to keep forever, but if it’s anything like recent give-aways they’ll require you download and install the official Twitch games installer app. The full details can be found on the official Twitch blog.

All of this seems like a natural conclusion to recent Twitch Prime events that have given away Fortnite costumes, Overwatch loot boxes and PUBG Crates.

If you’re unaware, Twitch Prime is just Amazon Prime when linked to to Twitch, since Amazon now owns the streaming company. That makes this a pretty good deal if you use Amazon at all, as it goes right along with all the other Amazon Prime benefits like rapid delivery and Amazon’s TV streaming service.
