Amazon Prime members can pick up several free PC games this month, including an Assassin’s Creed title.
Following last month’s StarCraft: Remastered draw, Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to claim Assassin’s Creed Origins as part of the September Prime Gaming lineup. The 2017 release marked a significant change of pace for the series, reigning in its stealth gameplay in favor of more RPG elements. He established a new formula that was followed in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Playing as the desert nomad Bayek, you will wander through Ancient Egypt on the eve of a Roman invasion. Expect the usual open-world exploration and melee combat that Assassin’s Creed is known for, as well as a character leveling system, crafting mechanics, and a bunch of historic Easter eggs.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will also be available to claim for free. Arguably the best Lord of the Rings video game, it’s another open world action RPG that mostly involves jumping over fragile Orc strongholds and slaying Sauron’s dark forces. Its Nemesis system, through which specific enemies remember you as they rise through the military ranks of Mordor, still looks fresh five years after the game’s release. And the timing is perfect, as The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series arrives next week.
