So..I googled a bit and only found relatively non-useful reddit thread that doesn't really answer my question, but i assume experienced RFD people will know it.


I'm not a gamer. Like at all. I do have amazon prime and i'd like to try some of these games out. Is there a way to use amazon gaming on an nvidia shield (pro)? I have a computer, but it acts mostly as a server and has no graphics card. Is a decent computer with a graphics card the only way to play these games?

Thanks!

Mass Effect Legendary wasn't given away for free on Epic... You probably got it some other way.

You could try Geforce now
https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce-now/

Works with Shield TV, otherwise you would need to have a decent gaming pc.
Don't ask "Is this a good deal?" when creating a thread. That goes in shopping discussion. Please post the price in title. Giving upvotes is free and yes, it is imaginary points that mean nothing but it also makes their effort feel appreciated

EA's platform is called origin. From past months, all EA games given away from prime gaming were Origin keys so I expect the same here.

That's a separate thing from Amazon prime though and I assume the games don't translate (and that's a different paid service). Hehe... Thanks though. I just wanted to see if there was a way.

For anyone wondering how it works I think you can only access at least some of the games from the "amazon gaming app". I just claimed Monkey Island, WRC 8, Calico, Astrologcaster, and Across the Grooves on gaming.amazon.com and they all say to play you must download the app. Far Cry 4 is also free now and redeems on a connected ubisoft account. I'm guessing you will loose access to the app games if you cancel prime? Haven't tried the app yet but looks like another launcher to add to the 9 already installed :facepalm:

Like the PS+ free games where they put a lock on the games if you stop paying the subscription fee.
nope, yours to keep forever regardless

From the site itself:

To claim, install and play new games with Prime, you will need an active Amazon Prime membership. If you would like to install or play games you have previously claimed, a basic Amazon account is required.
https://gaming.amazon.com/amazon-games-app

If you claim the games during active prime membership and cancel membership, you should still be able to access those games per this info as they fall in the “previously claimed” category.

This wasn’t answered yet, but are all these games for PC?

I believe you can only pre load the indie games starting June 21.

Thank you for your post. According to the article, we should be able to start "freeloading" more than 25 games "instantly" today (June 21st). However, the prime gaming home page doesn't mention anything about those games. Am I missing something, or will the games be available later in the day?

I would expect later today, I would check after 10am PDT / 1pm EDT (speculation).

For some of the games, you'll need to install another launcher: Legacy Games. Another launcher, great...
