Join Gaming Leaders, Alongside GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming, For Their 2nd Annual GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event.
Amazon today announced which games it is offering to Prime Gaming subscribers in January. Hopefully this sets the tone for the year because it gives a good result. Prime Gaming subscribers get Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and World War Z: Aftermath.
The biggest game on the slate is Jedi: Fallen Order, which follows the story of a Jedi Padawan who died in the years following Order 66. Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, it’s an enjoyable adventure that mixes a Metroidvania style design and Soul-like environments with fun lightsaber battles.
Unlike other subscription services, Prime Gaming does not offer all of its games on its own platform. Users redeem some of the games from other game stores via the codes provided during the claim. For example, Jedi: Fallen Order is available through Origin. Other AAA games to claim are World War Z: Aftermath, the cooperative zombie shooter; and Total War: Warhammer, the fantasy strategy title. Both are available on the Epic Games Store.
The 2nd Annual GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming and GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 Summit
Players can claim and download the rest of the games on PC through the Amazon Games app. One of the first on the list is Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered. I won’t blame anyone who doesn’t want to support Quantic Dream – who is currently at the center of controversy for their supposedly toxic culture and the bad behavior of their superiors. If you don’t want to play any of their games, there are several more to choose from. A fun alternative is Two-Point Hospital, a silly but difficult hospital management simulation.
Other games include the WRC 7 racing simulation, the naval RPG Abandon Ship, the adventure game In Other Waters, and the non-VR version of the sandbox game Paper Beast.
