Amazon is gearing up for this year's Prime Day with a number of early discounts on everything from Samsung OLED TVs to running shoes. And video games are also very much in the mix. Prime Gaming is an often-overlooked part of Prime Membership but it routinely offers decent titles either for free or with a sizeable discount.

In the run up to Prime Day, which runs across July 16 and July 17, Prime Members will be able to snag 15 PC games for free. And while there are a couple of turkeys in the line-up, there's also some genuinely good titles you can get.

Chief among them is Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II — The Sith Lords. While it's not quite as beloved as its predecessor, KOTOR II is regarded by some as one of the best Star Wars games ever made.

Set five years after the original game, it follows an exiled Jedi Knight as they seek to find the remaining scattered Jedi and stand up to the evil Sith. It's very much an Empire Strikes Back vibe, in that it's darker and much more ambitious than the initial game. Sadly, it was also full of bugs at the time of its release in 2004.

But the good news is you'll be able to try it for free on July 11 when it becomes available to Prime Members through the Amazon Games App. 

Amazon Prime: for $139/year

Of those 15 free games, four are available to download now while the others will be drip-fed through until the week before Prime Day officially starts. What's more, Amazon has confirmed there'll be more game offers throughout the event itself. So, this could be a very good time to round out your collection.

Not all the games are offered in the same place, some will require you to download the Amazon Games App while others can be redeemed at other online stores like GOG and the Epic Games Store.
