Amazon today announced Game Connect, which is focused on allowing gamers to purchase virtual goods in-game in addition to offering a catalog of free-to-play games.
“Customers will find a growing selection of popular free-to-play games such as World of Tanks, Spark City, Stronghold Kingdoms, Pandora Saga and Super Monday Night Combat at www.amazon.com/free2play. In addition, customers who use Game Connect to link their accounts to some of these games will unlock exclusive in-game content. To see a list of all the exclusive offerings, visit www.amazon.com/free2play/exclusives.
Customers who do not yet have game accounts can create them right from the Amazon product pages. The customer’s game account will then be linked to their Amazon account so any subscriptions and virtual goods purchased are sent directly into the game without copy and pasting a code.”
