Amazon Launches Gaming Cloud Service Luna: What Competitor Google Stadia Can Do

It would seem that there are already enough cloud gaming services in the world, but Amazon believes that another one will not hurt.


The company introduced the Luna service, which willcompete with the already launched Stadia, GEFORCE Now and the upcoming xCloud. Early Access is already open in the United States, and you can sign up on the official website.

Like its competitors, Luna is multi-platform, andis launching on Fire TV, PC and Mac, and applications for iPhone, iPad and Android devices are on the way. Given Apple's dislike of cloud services, Amazon will have to work hard to convince Tim Cook.

You don't have to buy games separately, and the serviceworks on a Luna + subscription. For $ 6 per month (Early Access), players will have access to a starter pack of games that will expand over time. For example, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6 and Immortals: Fenyx Rising will appear in the service in the future. In addition, subscribers will be able to play on two devices simultaneously at 4K and 60 FPS.

Now gamers will be able to stick to:

  • Resident Evil 7,
  • Control,
  • Panzer Dragoon,
  • A Plague Tale: Innocence,
  • The Surge 2,
  • Yooka-Laylee,
  • The Impossible Lair,
  • Iconoclasts,
  • GRID,
  • ABZU,
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

As with Google Stadia, Amazon is releasinga special controller for Luna that can connect directly to servers to reduce latency. The Luna Controller will cost $ 50, but players can also use a keyboard with mouse or third-party gamepads.
