Prime Gaming goes to Neverwinter for June’s PC gaming freebies

The latest delivery of free Prime Gaming titles will include an RPG classic with Neverwinter Nights, as well as some terrific Luna titles.

Time to replay a classic

Well, it might not be all that current, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a finer example of PC RPG gaming than Neverwinter Nights. From Obsidian, Neverwinter brings (basically) the Baldur’s Gate formula back for another romp, in a whole new locale.

Of course, while the setting is new, Neverwinter Nights offers up the same level of play, as well as Dungeons & Dragons’ typical high-fantasy. If you love the genre, and role-playing games in general, it’s definitely worth a play. Plus this is the Enhanced Edition, so it’s a little better looking than the original that saw launch way back in 2002.

Past that, there isn’t a ton that you’re likely to know off the top of your head. But just remember, that there’s also that 8 pack of additional titles that Amazon added to Prime Gaming for May and June. You still have some time to get in on those and kick off your summer with copious freebies.
