For the month of May: Get six free games with Twitch Prime. (Photo: Twitch Prime)

At the beginning of May, the live-streaming service Twitch just dropped a whole new crop of free games for Amazon Prime members.

Not a member? Amazon has a 30-day free trial for new users, so you can try the service before you subscribe, and you can sign up here. And when the trial is over, you can get Amazon Prime for just $13 a month or $119 for 12 months. Meanwhile, you have to be a member of Twitch to join Twitch Prime, but it’s free to sign up too.

One of the best perks of Twitch Prime are the games. Every month, you’ll get free games to keep in your library, even if you cancel the service. This month, Twitch dropped six games (worth $74 on Steam) for all Amazon Prime and Twitch Prime members. Along with the games, you also get free level-up options for characters, skins, boosts, upgrades, and more at no additional cost.

To start playing, you’ll need the Amazon Games app or the Twitch Desktop app for Windows 10 and macOS laptops and desktop computers. It will also work with Android and iOS smartphones and mobile devices, as well as iPadOS and Fire TV tablets too. The games can also be played on Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV, and more. Check out a full list of devices that work with the service here.
