Amazon has joined other technology giants in launching their own cloud-based game streaming services. The Luna cloud gaming service allows you to play games on compatible Fire TV, PC and Mac devices, as well as web applications on your iPhone and iPad. It will compete with Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud, NVIDIA GeForce Now, SONY PlayStation Now and other similar services.
Luna offers game channels that provide access to a specific selection of games for a monthly fee. Currently, the service is only available in the U.S., and you can only become a user by invitation. The subscription fee is $5.99 per month for the Luna+ plan. This plan supports gameplay on two devices simultaneously with a resolution of up to 1080 px. In the future, for some games should appear support 4K. Amazon recommends a minimum Internet speed of 10Mbps for 1080p games, and 35Mbps for 4K games.
Among the games available in Luna+ are action, adventure, platforming, shooting, role-playing, racing and classic games from Ubisoft, Capcom, 505 Games and Team 17. In particular, you can play Control, Grid, Resident Evil 7, Metro Exodus, ABZ, Overcooked 2 and Two Point Hospital.
The service is compatible with the Xbox One controller, DualShock 4 controller, keyboard and mouse, and the Luna controller. The Luna controller can connect to compatible devices via Bluetooth or USB. It supports Alexa and Twitch. With Twitch integration, you can easily switch between Twitch streams and Luna games for compatible games.
