As anticipated, Amazon has finally entered the cloud gaming market with its new service namely Luna. Well, Luna will be a part of Amazon Web Services, and initially its available for early access in the USA. Similar to every other cloud gaming service in existence like Google Stadia, Luna functions as a subscription-based service. Depending on your subscription tier you can access a particular library of games.
Moreover, Amazon has also introduced channels. Every channel is dedicated to a particular game publisher. After subscribing to a channel you can play every single title from the publisher. For instance, if you subscribed to the Ubisoft channel you will be able to play titles like Assassins Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals Fenyx Rising.
After the launch, Ubisoft senior vice president of partnerships Chris Early stated that “We’re proud to be working alongside Amazon on Luna, utilizing the power of cloud gaming to provide our players with another way to access our games, wherever they are.” In this article, we have shared everything you need to know about the Amazon Luna cloud gaming service.
