Amazon Partners With Ubisoft On A Luna Game-Streaming Channel
The company says this is just one of many gaming channels it has in development.
Amazon has unveiled its cloud gaming platform, Luna. In announcing its dive into cloud gaming, Amazon also partnered with publisher Ubisoft to create a gaming channel specific to the Luna platform.
Though nameless for now, the gaming channel will be Ubisoft-specific and gives Luna subscribers access to the publisher's titles the same day they release. This includes games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals: Fenyx Rising. These will run in up to 4K resolution and comes with mobile gameplay, possibly meaning you can take it on the go so long as you're connected to your Amazon account. Since the channel is a subscription, per Amazon's wording, it's likely to cost something. What that cost is, though, remains to be seen as neither Amazon nor Ubisoft has specified this yet. The channel also isn't the only one in development for Luna.
"This is the first of multiple Luna game channels in development, where customers can play games from their favorite publishers and genres," Amazon said in describing the Ubisoft gaming channel. The company hasn't unveiled any other gaming publishers it is partnering with yet.
Luna will be playable on Amazon's own Fire TV devices, Mac, and PC, as well as iPhone and iPad through web apps for $6 a month during its early access period. Amazon said an Android version is coming soon. The company also revealed the list of available launch games, which include Control, Iconoclasts, and Resident Evil 7. You can request early access to Luna through the service's official website.
