Amazon Has Introduced The Luna Cloud Gaming Service In The U. S.

After an invite-only early access period, Amazon has fully launched its Luna cloud gaming service in the United States.

 

The company, which runs the world’s largest cloud platform, will distribute games through various channels.

Amazon Prime members will be able to access free titles, with the core Luna+ Channel costing $5.99 per month (but set to rise to $9.99). The Retro Channel, which includes older games, and the party-game Jackbox Channel cost $4.99 per month.

 

Ubisoft+ is a collection of games from French game publisher Ubisoft that costs $17.99.

 

Streamers will be able to connect their Luna accounts to Twitch, a platform for streaming game video for others to watch that Amazon purchased in 2015 for $970 million.

 

“Luna harnesses the power of the cloud, allowing customers to instantly play high-quality, immersive games on devices they already own,” said Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services VP Daniel Rausch.

 

“Today, we’re excited to make Luna available to all customers on the mainland United States, with a one-of-a-kind offer for Prime members to play free games, new Twitch broadcast features for creators, and a diverse lineup of titles to suit any gamer.”
