Elsewhere in cloud gaming…
Google Stadia has added four free games to its roster, ready for those with a subscription to start playing now. PixelJunk Raiders is first on the list and it’s also formatted to enable State Share. The other titles are AVICII Invector, PAC-MAN Mega Tunnel Battle and Reigns.
The Stadia store has also added Hellpoint, It came from space and ate our brains and Monster Jam Steel Titans 2 to its cache of games waiting to be purchased. Fans of the Watch Dogs franchise and THQ Nordic games should also check out the limited time discounts being offered on a number of titles, including Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2, Watch Dogs: Legion and Darksiders Genesis.
Over at Amazon, Prime Gaming has unveiled its quintuplet of free games in March for members. The titles are Bomber Crew Deluxe, Blasphemous, Boomerang Fu, SkyDrift and Tengami. Once claimed, players can keep these games forever.
Meanwhile, Humble Bundle, the digital gaming storefront, has announced Girls Who Code as its charity of the month. This means Girls Who Code will receive a percentage of all Humble Bundle sales. Girls who code is a non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and “change the image of what a programmer looks like and does.”
