While everyone’s talking about the new year, the important thing for Amazon and Twitch Prime members is that it’s a new month. That’s because January’s batch of free PC games is now available to download for Twitch Prime members. To take advantage, all you have to do is link your accounts, claim the games, and you’re good to go.
January’s Prime games are Hyper Light Drifter, Bomber Crew, Republique, and Orwell. You can also still get the Devolver Digital Holiday Pack, which became available just before Christmas. It contains The Messenger, Broforce, Hotline Miami, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Strafe, Crossing Souls, and The Swords of Ditto. You can claim all of these games between now and January 31. Once you do, they’re yours to keep and play forever, even if you cancel your Prime membership.
Hyper Light Drifter is a gorgeous action RPG GameSpot awarded 9/10 in our review. Bomber Crew is a survival sim about maintaining a plane and crew as you run military missions. Orwell has you use an invasive computer program to figure out who’s responsible for an act of terrorism, and Republique is a futuristic stealth game.
Standouts in the Devolver Digital Holiday Pack include the Ninja Gaiden-style game The Messenger and the two ultra-violent top-down Hotline Miami titles. Also currently available for Prime members are a pair of in-game loot bundles for Warframe on PC.
If you’re wondering whether being a Twitch Prime member is worthwhile, the streaming company announced it gave away over $3,000 worth of games and digital items over the course of 2018. Here’s to 2019.
