TR Member Perks!

Versus Evil and Twitch have teamed up to provide The Banner Saga and The Banner Saga 2 for free to Twitch Prime subscribers completely for free for a limited time according to a press release.

Twitch Prime is the result of a partnership between Twitch and Amazon. If you currently have an active Amazon Prime membership, you’re also entitled to the benefits of a Twitch Prime account. Simply link your Amazon Prime account to the Twitch Prime page and you’re good to go. Among its benefits are ad-free videos, a free subscription token to hand out every month (essentially a free $2.50 to give to any one Twitch streamer), and quite a few other perks.

The games are being offered in certain limited time windows for active Twitch Prime members. Players who are after The Banner Saga can grab it between February 23rd and February 28th, and players who are looking to get The Banner Saga 2 have to have an active Twitch Prime subscription between March 2nd and March 6th. Additionally, players who download these games during this promotion will get special exclusive content for The Banner Saga 3.

Speaking of the next game in the series, Twitch Prime will be donated $1 towards the Kickstarter campaign for The Banner Saga 3 (up to a maximum of $200,000) for every subscriber who downloads and plays either of the two games through the Twitch launcher between the dates of February 23rd and March 6th, The company behind the tactical Viking-themed games are doing quite well with the campaign for the next title in the series. At the time of writing, it’s at nearly $320,000 of its original $200,000 goal with just ten days remaining in the campaign. If you enjoyed the previous two games you might want to give it a look!
