Prime Gaming gets back in the swing with a strong lineup of freebies in May

Prime Gaming might’ve been a little thin in terms of grade A titles lately, but it’s back in action for May, with Star Wars, Torment, and more.

Jump to hyperspace

I guess we don’t want to overstate it too much, because it’s not like there are any massive games on offer this coming month by way of Prime Gaming. But that said, it’s not a bad slate either, with some classic gems hitting the service’s rotating selection of freebies.

Subscribers will have the N64 classic Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D to play, along with the role-playing legend Planescape: Torment, Samurai Showdown V, King of Monsters 2 and loads more.
