Amazon’s Prime Gaming service offers free games each month, and this one is pretty noteworthy: Battlefield 3, the modern shooter classic that many consider the untouchable high point of the franchise.
Don’t worry about signing up for yet another monthly subscription service – Prime Gaming is included with Amazon Prime for no extra cost (if you link your account to Twitch), and those who haven’t tried Prime before are eligible for a free 30 day trial. So you could, theoretically, sign up for the free trial, get Battlefield 3, do all your holiday shopping, then carefully hit “do not auto-renew” in settings before the month is up. We’re not saying you should, of course. Purely theoretical.
That being said, Prime Gaming might be a good thing to have if you’re big into PC gaming and do a lot of online shopping, as it comes bundled free with Prime anyway. There’s regular games given away, as well as numerous exclusives in certain games aligned with either Amazon or Twitch. Again though, you can always test it out through the free trial and let it go afterwards if it’s not your thing.
