Amazon Prime subscribers will soon have the opportunity to obtain StarCraft Remastered. This fantastic strategy game was released in 2017 by Blizzard Entertainment. It features three warring alien species competing for dominance. This remake of the 1998 classic is considered one of the greatest video games ever made, and it is widely regarded as a significant influencer in the strategy genre.

We are not finished yet! Zak McKracken, the Alien Mindbenders, are this month’s final free title. Lucasfilm Games made them. This classic graphic adventure game is from 1988.
