Did you know your Prime membership includes free video games and in-game content at no additional cost? Prime Gaming is just one of the many cool benefits of Prime, which saves members money every day with exclusive deals, free delivery, prescription savings, and quality entertainment. Specifically, Prime Gaming offers access to tons of free content for PC, console, and mobile games. Prime members can claim at least one game per week, and in the past, we’ve offered classic and popular titles like Assassin’s Creed Origins, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Dishonored 2, along with indie gems such as Enter the Gungeon, Wizard of Legend, and Overcooked.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to claim your free games and in-game content.
1.Sign in to Prime Gaming
Head to gaming.amazon.com on any web browser and sign in with your Prime credentials (the same credentials you use to shop on Amazon).
2.Peruse available free games and in-game content
From the Prime Gaming site, you can browse through available games and in-game content. If you see an offer you’re interested in, simply click the associated “Claim” button to begin the process (sometimes customers will claim a code to redeem content via a storefront). Each time you claim a piece of content, you’ll also get directions outlining how to access it. If this is your first time claiming Prime Gaming offers, you’ll have an additional step or two (outlined below).
3.Link your Prime Gaming account to your game and game-launcher accounts
To claim some offers, you will link your Prime Gaming account to your game account. For example, in order to claim content for Riot Games titles such as VALORANT or League of Legends, you will be prompted to sign into your Riot account. This tells the game you’re a Prime Gaming member, so it can unlock the respective content for you, free of charge.
Make sure you have your game account details handy—or, if you don’t have a game account, you will need to create an account.
Once you’ve linked your Prime Gaming account to these game publisher and game-launcher accounts, Prime Gaming should remember most of them, so claiming these games and in-game content offers is often as easy as a single click. Even better, many of the in-game content offers span multiple platforms and can be enjoyed across PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and more, where applicable. In some cases, the in-game content appears automatically in your game after you’ve successfully claimed said content and linked the relevant account.
4.Download and install the Amazon Games app to play claimed PC games
In order to install some of the free PC games you’ve claimed via Prime Gaming, you’ll need to install the Amazon Games app and sign in with your Amazon Prime credentials. Once signed in, click “Ready to Install” in the Library panel, where you’ll see all of the claimed games associated with your Prime account conveniently listed out for download. Simply click on the “Install” button for each game you’d like to download.
5.Enjoy your content!
Here comes the easy and fun part. You should be all set up and ready to go with Prime Gaming, so claiming free games and in-game content will be even easier in the future.
Handy tip: Once you’ve built up a collection of games and in-game content via Prime Gaming, the helpful My Collection feature provides members with one-click access to check their previous game history, claim codes, and review the delivery status of their collected content. Additionally, you can sign up to receive email reminders that notify you when new content is available to claim by adjusting your Notification Settings.
And with that, welcome to the Prime Gaming party! Prime Gaming just announced a fresh batch of content for May, including games such as Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D, Samurai Shodown IV, and Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition. Get all the details over at this Prime Gaming blog post.
