Amazon's Prime Gaming Free Games for June Revealed

Now that May is almost done, Amazon's Prime Gaming has officially announced the new titles that will be available for free to Amazon Prime subscribers in June 2022. Free games and other in-game loot are a regular feature of Prime Gaming, though availability tends to rotate on a monthly basis. In total, June 2022 will see six different video games available to claim in the form of Far Cry 4, Escape from Monkey Island, Astrologaster, Across the Grooves, Calico, and WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship.

As with other similar subscription services, there are some caveats with Amazon's Prime Gaming. They require an Amazon Prime subscription to claim, most important, and these are PC-only titles. They're also only available for a limited time and, depending on the specific video games, digital platforms like Origin could be required.
