Amazon Announces New Cloud Gaming Service Luna

Amazon Luna Cloud Gaming

Amazon has announced its brand new cloud gaming service Luna.

The brand new service, which rivals Google’s Stadia and Microsoft’s xCloud, is powered by the company’s Amazon Web Service infrastructure and allows users to stream games in 4K 60 frames-per-second on PC, Mac, iOS web browsers, Fire TV, and Android devices soon.

According to Vidogameschronicle, Luna will offer a selection of around 100 video games along with Twitch integration and it will support an all-new Luna video game controller, which looks startlingly similar to the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, is Alexa-enabled, and is priced at $49.99.

Users subscribed to Luna can also subscribe to different paid channels which in turn offer access to a unique selection of games. The Luna+ channel, for example, is included within the base Luna subscription and allows users to play games such as Control, A Plague Tale: Innocence, Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair, and so many others.

Only one other channel, based on Ubisoft, has been announced for the service and it includes most Ubisoft titles as well as upcoming releases Far Cry 6, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Immortals Fenyx Rising. Amazon has confirmed that more publisher-based channels will be added to the service in the future.

In addition to announcing Luna, Amazon revealed that residents in the United States can request early access to the server for $5.99. No launch date has been confirmed for the UK but we will likely see a similar price, making it cheaper than both Microsoft’s Game Pass, which allows users to download and play games, and Google’s Stadia cloud streaming service.

What’s more, unlike Stadia which requires users to subscribe to the service and then pay for games to access them, Luna users will simply need to pay the subscription fee to access the service’s games.

Speaking about the new service, Marc Whitten, Amazon’s VP of Entertainment Devices and Services, said: “We created Luna to make it easy to play great games on the devices customers already own and love. It’s Day One for Luna – we are excited to work with gamers, streamers, and publishers like Ubisoft and Remedy Entertainment to build a great gaming experience for everyone.”

You can expect more information about Amazon Luna in the coming months. In the meantime, watch the trailer below for a closer look at the service:
