Amazon Prime subscribers can pick up a classic RPG game for free this month
Planescape Torment and Star Wars: Rogue Squadron are up for grabs
Amazon has revealed the next batch of games that Prime subscribers can pick up for free this month.
Leading the pack is Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition, the 2017 HD re-release of Black Isle Studio’s beloved CRPG. Baldur’s Gate often gets credited for ushering in the world of RPGs genre as we know it, but Planescape: Torment set the standard for story-driven roleplaying and elegant writing that ranged from the horrifying to the fantastical to the hilarious.

🙌 The next batch of Amazon Prime games is here
⚔ Classic RPG Planescape Torment is up for grabs
🚀 As is the arcade flight simulator Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D
🤩 Prime members can claim and keep them forever for free
It’s joined by Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D, an arcade spaceship simulator from back in 1998. It doesn’t compare to Motive’s spiritual successor Star Wars: Squadrons from a few years ago, but if you missed picking that gem up for free last year, Rogue Squadron is still able to hold its own surprisingly well for a 25-year-old game.
Outside of those heavyweights, there are a bunch more smaller titles. Check out every game that’ll be hitting Prime Gaming this month below:
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D
Planescape: Torment – Enhanced Edition
The Almost Gone
Alpha Mission 2
Lila’s Sky Ark
King of the Monsters 2
As usual, all the games are free to claim if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber and can be kept forever, even after your membership ends.
It’s not been a bad few months for Prime members. Amazon gave away a fantastic horror game at the start of the year and before that handed out Total War: Warhammer 2 and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, and classic RPG Fallout: New Vegas. They’re older titles, of course, but essential additions to any gaming library.
