Amazon has been giving away free games as part of its paid Prime membership for a while now, but they’ve rarely been this good. After a powerhouse lineup last month, the service is doubling down in November with nine more, and just in time for Tomb Raider’s birthday.

Amazon Prime’s gaming rewards for November include paranormal thriller Control: Ultimate Edition, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Rise of the Tomb Raider, the last of which arrives as part of Square Enix’s 25th anniversary celebration for the series. In conjunction with making the second game in the reboot trilogy free, it’s also porting 2010’s Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and 2014’s Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris to the Switch in 2022.

In the meantime, here’s the full list of Prime games for November:

  • Rogue Heroes
  • Liberated
  • Puzzle Agent 2
  • Demon Hunter 2: New Chapter
  • BAFL – Brakes Are For Losers
  • Secret Files: Sam Peters
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Control: Ultimate Edition

If you haven’t taken advantage of Amazon Prime’s free games before, you just claim them before time runs up and get a redemption code for the relevant PC storefront. Unfortunately, yes, in the case of Dragon Age: Inquisition, 2014’s blockbuster BioWare RPG, that means you’ll have to open EA’s Origin back up. If you, like me, have had a hankering to get back to Thedas after abandoning it years ago, it’s a small price to pay.

This also means there’s no excuse not to give Control a whirl if you haven’t already, and as long as your PC can handle it. The Ultimate Edition comes with all of the DLC, each piece of which is excellent in its own right, and builds out the creepy main Metroidvania-like campaign into an even more sprawling saga of intrigue and fun superpowers. Rise of the Tomb Raider, meanwhile, needs no introduction, but can only be claimed until November 14.

  • Another Amazon advertisement dressed up as an article. And no social issues raised when y’all are getting paid.

      • Yeah, the pitchforks raised against Amazon and Bezos are a bit ridiculous at times. They’re taking advantage of loose laws and a lot of demands are driven by consumers.

        • They routinely exploit their factory workers and drivers, fought against the BEZOS Act (to raise the minimum wage in the US to something that is actually close to a liveable wage), oppose unionisation… and on and on… they have their Wikipedia page full of all the dodgy crap they’ve done over the years, and continue to do, all while the guy at the top earns close $4k every single second.

          Consumer demand and exploiting loose laws that help to shape with lobbying don’t make any of that a good thing.

          • Yes, in AMERICA, which Amazon AUSTRALIA is not involved in the running of, since warehouse employees here are free to be engaged into whatever union activity they so desire. If Americans want to fix their issues with Amazon, they’re going to have to do it in their own country across all their employment law areas. The service provided here has nothing to do with the American Amazon, beyond having Prime shipping on some goods shipped from overseas Amazon warehouses.

      • Piss off you pathetic insecure loser. Just because you’re weak and hateful doesn’t mean other intelligent people are. Trying to use ‘woke’ as an insult just outs yourself as low-IQ scum.

    • Wow you’re dumb, if you’re seriously that stupid you should have a handler to screen your posts. I didn’t know about Prime’s free games at all, as I’m sure many others did not, and not every post needs to address social issues, what are you even saying you utter buffoon. If you’re going to troll do it somewhere else, and do it better.

  • I don’t care if it’s an advertisement or not – it was informative to me, and saved me the $20 I was going to spend on Control Ultimate today.

    My Prime membership pays for itself in shipping costs, everything else is gravy. There’s been some really good shows and movies on there as well. Separating the company/product from the man, it’s a good service most of the time.

  • Kotaku and friends when no sponsorship: There’s Never Been A Better Time To Unionize Amazon!!!

    Kotaku when sponsored and affiliate links are posted: Amazon Prime’s Free Games For November Are Shockingly Good, Again

    • I’m struggling to see the contradiction in your post. Surely it’s both never been a better time to unionise Amazon AND the games are pretty good, yeah?

      I mean, seriously dude. Nobody in Kotaku US even reads these comments (it’s just a reblog mate), and if they did, care factor that Gamer Joker gets triggered by social justice issues is approximately zero.

      But hell, feel free to keep getting angry into the ether. I mean, it’s better than harassing someone who actually cares.
