Amazon unveils cloud gaming service Luna

Amazon’s long-rumoured cloud gaming service has finally been unveiled; it’s called Luna and will be heading to Fire TV, PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android soon.

As with Google and Microsoft’s similarly styled offerings, Stadia and Cloud Gaming with Xbox Game Pass, Amazon’s pitch is immediate access to a wide range of games across multiple devices. Unlike Stadia’s much-maligned effort, however, Amazon is opting for something closer to an all-inclusive subscription model, initially offering over 100 games via its Luna+ channel for an “introductory price” of $5.99 USD a month during early access.

Games will be playable at up to 4K/60fps, and will initially include Control, Panzer Dragoon, A Plague Tale: Innocence, The Surge 2, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, GRID, Resident Evil 7, Abzu, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. More will be added over time, and Amazon notes games can be played on up to two devices simultaneously with a single subscription.
