Prime Gaming’s August ’23 includes Diablo IV goodies, Quake 4, In Sound Mind, Star Wars and more

There’s once again a lot to like as goes Amazon’s Prime Gaming this month, including big name free titles and comp’d DLC.

Rounding out the summer

It’s August, and you know what that means. For most of the world, the last unofficial month of summertime means some of the hottest temps, so it’s the perfect time to crank the AC, load up with a cool beverage, and fire up some free PC games. Fortunately, Prime Gaming has subscribers covered on that last one.

This month follows what was a pretty solid July with an arguably even better August. While last month brought Star Wars: The Force Unleashed to PC players, August brings its direct sequel, as well as an underrated FPS gem with Quake 4, plus the psychological dream-bender In Sound Mind and another load of free DLC.

As usual, there’s some great stuff wedged in there, with Diablo IV, Call of Duty, and even Fall Guys additions on tap.

August’s free games include:

  • August 3 PayDay 2 + “The Gage Mod Courier” DLC (Epic Games Store) – Descend onto Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree in this action-packed, four player co-op shooter that lets you don the masks of the original PayDay crew of Dallas, Hoxton, Wof and Chains. In addition to the core game, members can also claim the Gage Mod Courier DLC, which includes around 28 new weapon modifications and 10 achievements for players that enjoy achievement hunting.  
  • August 10 Farming Simulator 19 (Epic Games Store) – Take control of new machinery, handle crops, expand your farm, tend to your livestock and explore land inspired by new American and European environments.

  • August 10 Quake 4 (GOG) – Spearhead Earth’s military invasion as part of the elite Rhino Squad, fighting for humanity’s survival against an unrelenting enemy, players may discover that the only way to defeat them… is to become one of them. 
  • August 17 Star Wars: The Force Unleashed™ 2 (Amazon Games App) – Take on the role of Starkiller and embark on a journey to discover his identity, reunite with his one true love and defeat Darth Vader in this sequel to a beloved classic.

  • August 31 Summertime Madness (Legacy Games Code) – Find escape from your prison, trapped inside a canvas as an artist who made a deal with the devil, or be stuck forever in the painting.

Some for the Luna-tics

As is expected, there’s also a fresh lineup of streaming, Luna games this month too. And also as expected they include some big names. Amazon is serving up Batora: Lost Haven, SteamWorld Quest, The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf, and Ys VIII: Lacrimose of Dana.

You might want to get started right away if you want to make it through that last one before the month runs out; just a suggestion. That’s something you can do starting today, as Luna’s August lineup is officially live as of August 1st, in the US, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

If you don’t know, Luna is a ‘play anywhere’ type of platform. Fans can fire up the above freebies via the cloud, on supported devices. The game selection rotates monthly, and is available for anyone who has a Prime Gaming or Luna subscription.

The full list

Getting back to the stuff you get to keep though, as usual we have the full list of what Prime Gaming has on tap, including all the staggered free-game releases, and that DLC.
