What are the titles good for?

The collection that Amazon offers on the occasion of Prime Day is a colorful mix. While “Mass Effect: Legendary Edition” or the three Star Wars titles are certainly familiar to many gaming enthusiasts, the other games come from rather unknown studios. Nevertheless, one or the other game is worthwhile in any case. We present some highlights.

Bang Bang Racing (instead of 9.99 Euro)

This arcade racing game demands speed, reaction and sensitivity. A total of nine completely different race tracks and over 20 racing cars are available. In addition to the challenging track, there are also environmental influences such as rain or sand.

This first-person shooter from the Star Wars universe has enjoyed enormous popularity since its release in 2005. As the leader of the titular Republic Commando, you have to maneuver your team tactically through enemy camps. For us, this is one of the biggest highlights of the Prime Day game promotion.

How to get the free games for Prime Day

Those who have an active Prime subscription can find the Amazon Prime Day offer via the overview page of Prime Gaming under the item “Free games available with Prime”. There, the games are directly available for download. Most of the titles are then tied to the Prime account. In some exceptional cases, you get an activation code via mail for the games from Electronic Arts to play them via the in-house platform Origin.

Overall, the games on offer for Amazon Prime Day 2022 are good. Both the selection of titles and the savings are worthwhile for those interested. The Amazon -offer is, however, only aimed at Prime -customers who play on a PC. Those who prefer to play on a console will unfortunately not benefit from the free promotion.
