- Amazon Prime Gaming is seemingly launching in India with PC games.
- Amazon India’s website has a dedicated Prime Gaming page, but it doesn’t display any games yet.
- An official announcement regarding Prime Gaming launch in India seems to be coming soon.
Amazon Prime Gaming is apparently making its way to India for PC gaming. Amazon India had previously introduced Prime Gaming in 2020, but it only had bonus in-game items for mobile games. The service is already available in many regions across the globe excluding India. Prime Gaming offers PC games as well as in-game items to Amazon Prime subscribers at no additional cost. Amazon Prime Gaming launch in India will be great for PC gaming in the country. While Amazon India hasn’t made any official announcement yet, it seems the company is getting ready to launch Prime Gaming soon.
There’s a direct call out for PC gaming. Wasn’t the case earlier. Hence the interest. https://t.co/PmCiiEjY5Z— 0xSkeptic (@RishiAlwani) December 5, 2022
As spotted by gaming industry insider Rishi Alwani, Amazon India website has set up a dedicated Prime Gaming page declaring, “Prime Gaming is now in India.” However, if you click on the Games or In-game Content option, it gives you an error saying, “Prime Gaming is not available.” It seems like the Amazon Prime Gaming page has gone live earlier than expected. The page also reads, “With Prime Gaming (included with your Prime membership) unlock instant access to tons of exclusive content for your favourite games and a rotating collection of PC games…each and every month.” Besides these, the Amazon app displays the page for Prime Gaming and gives the same error as the website.
Although Amazon India hasn’t confirmed anything yet, an official announcement seems to be on its way. It remains to be seen which PC games will be given away as part of Prime Gaming in India. In the US, Prime Gaming is offering eight games this month including Quake, The Amazing American Circus, Rose Riddle 2: Werewolf Shadow, Spinch, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Doors: Paradox, and Desert Child. The Indian version of Prime Gaming is expected to deliver a similar experience.
