Twitch Prime subscribers will now get free monthly games

Free games have intermittently been made available to Twitch Prime subscribers in the past, of course - and members can now download Devil May Cry HD for free. Since there is now a free game bundle that comes with the subscription of Twitch Prime, it has all major forms of mass media that a Prime subscription covers, according to Fast Company.

Aptly called Free Games with Prime, the program launches on March 15 with two titles: the excellent first-person shooter Superhot and Oxenfree. 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. Now Twitch seems to be getting in on the action for Twitch Prime users. In total, five titles will be offered for free over the last half of the month.

Rain wreaks havoc for Roger Federer at Indian Wells
Kevin Anderson put on a serving masterclass as he saw off Nicolas Kicker 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-3). "The surface doesn't react so much". The win sets up a third-round showdown with Spaniard David Ferrer, who defeated Tennys Sandgren of the U.S. 6-2, 7-6 (7-3).

Twitch members will start receiving their free loot this week, as the program kicks off on Thursday.

A new set of games will be available from 1 April: Tales from the Borderlands, SteamWorld Dig 2, Kingsway, Tokyo 42 and Dubwars.

United States picking up Taliban interest in Afghan peace talks: Mattis
Neighboring countries are doubtful about America's commitment to a political resolution. "It's not a popular insurgency", he said. But Taliban attacks have continued, including a January suicide bombing in Kabul that killed more than 100 people.

The indie game downloads will be every month, and announcements for May will probably be coming soon enough.

We're not sure yet how the games will be delivered to you, but it's likely to be through the Twitch desktop application. Oxenfree is a moody adventure game, Superhot is a stylish FPS with a cool gimick.

Markets flat in early trade; Sensex inches towards regaining 34000-mark
Among the BSE sectoral indices, IT fell the most at 1.56 per cent, followed by Teck (1.06 per cent) and FMCG (0.01). The index posted its biggest single-day gain since March 1, 2016, when it had jumped 777.35.

For those interested, Twitch Prime is included with Amazon Prime memberships, costing an annual fee of £79/$99 or a monthly fee of £5.99/$12.99. Considering how many subscribers Twitch Prime already has, Twitch and Amazon are basically just giving out more free stuff because they can.
