If you’re a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge owner, you now have access to some in-game perks for several games in the Google Play Store. Samsung is giving away exclusive content and premium perks as part of the new “Galaxy Game Pack,” all of which come free to S7 and S7 Edge owners.

There are a number of games available as part of the promotion, including popular games like Asphalt 8: Airborne and Clash of Kings. In both of those games, you will get a few extra freebies, such as the Class B car pack in Asphalt 8 and a bonus special pack in Clash of Kings. For a full list of the free games and in-game rewards, head here.

If you are an owner of the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, it is pretty easy to claim the gift. Simply head to the Google Play Store page for the Galaxy Game Pack, then start downloading the games. Keep in mind that the offer is only valid until January 1, so make sure you go through and get all the games you want before then.

The content is nice for owners of eligible devices. However, Samsung is going to have to push a lot harder if it wants to gain back the customer base it had before the Galaxy Note 7 debacle when some devices spontaneously caught fire while charging. Only time will tell what the future of Samsung’s smartphone business looks like. While we expect to see a Galaxy S8 in the next few months, we are a little less sure about whether Samsung will continue the Galaxy Note line or not.
