Cloud gaming services are a thing right now, and today Amazon announced that it's getting in on the action.
Luna is Amazon's new cloud gaming service that aims to let you play video games by streaming them on all of your devices. At launch, Luna will be available on the Fire TV, PC, and Mac as well as on iPhone and iPad using web apps. Android support is coming soon.
Amazon isn't saying exactly when Luna will launch quite yet, but you can request an invitation for early access right here.
Users can sign up for the Luna+ game channel for the introductory price of $5.99 per month and get access to a variety of well-known games. Those include Resident Evil 7, Control, Panzer Dragoon, A Plague Tale: Innocence, The Surge 2, Yooka-Laylee, GRID, Abzu, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. More games will be added over time.
Game publisher Ubisoft will have its own Luna game channel that players can subscribe to and play games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals Fenyx Rising the same day that they're released.
Luna+ subscribers can play at resolutions up to 4K with 60fps for select titles. Support for playing on two devices simultaneously is supported, too, as is the ability to begin playing on one display and then move to another and have your progress sync over.
As for what you'll use to control these games, you can choose to play with a keyboard and mouse, a Bluetooth game controller, or Amazon's new Luna Controller. The Luna Controller connects directly to the cloud over Wi-Fi that's meant to get your lower latency controls. And since it connects to the cloud, you don't need to re-pair the Luna Controller when you switch between devices.
The Luna Controller will be available for the introductory price of $49.99 during Luna's early access period.
