As recently as last month, the streaming giant teamed up with Epic Games to hand out skins and other loot from free-to-play battle royale behemoth Fortnite. Now Twitch seems to be getting in on the action for Twitch Prime users. March's five free games include Superhot, Oxenfree, Mr. Shifty, Shadow Tactics, and Dungeons & Dragons: Tomb of Annihilation. According to the company, members can keep these Free Games with Prime titles forever.

Both March and April's Free Game with Prime selection will feature five games. Twitch mentions in its blog that all eight titles from the Indie Amplifier program will be made available for Twitch Prime subscribers over the next few months.

Joining the likes of PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold, Free Games with Prime is a new service from Twitch that will award its Prime subscribers a handful of free PC games every month.

For those who have been paying to Twitch's Indie Amplifier contest over the past month, most of these games will be familiar. Ever since it arrived it launched in 2016, subscribers were privy to free games every so often. It has since been rolled out new goodies to entice Twitch users to join Amazon Prime.
