Amazon has decided to join the cloud gaming/game streaming arena. Amazon has announced Luna, a cloud gaming service that is all set to release as early access in October.
On launch, Luna will include games like Resident Evil 7, Control, Tacoma, Metro Exodus, and Overcooked 2. Sega and 505 Games are two studios that have partnered up with Amazon to get Luna off the ground. Additionally, it will have à la carte access to channels that have more games, like the Ubisoft channel with day-one access to games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals Fenyx Rising. There’s also a mention of Team 17.
Luna will be available on PC, Mac, Fire TV, and web apps for iPhone and iPad. Of course, there is a custom controller in here too, called the Luna Controller.
We're excited to announce the Ubisoft channel coming soon to @AmazonLuna!
