The new service from the US e-commerce giant is similar to the Stadia service from Google, and will allow users to play games that are streamed over the Internet without having to download and install them.
(Luna) service will provide users with different channels that they can subscribe to to access various content. There is also a major channel called (Luna Plus) +, which is now in the early access phase. Subscribers to this channel will be playing games at 1080p at 60 frames per second, and there is a plan to support 4K resolution at a later time. And users can play on two devices together.
Luna + is available to subscribe for $ 6 per month during Early Access, and the channel will get more games in the future.
And Amazon announced a dedicated channel for Ubisoft. Through this channel, subscribers can access current and future Ubisoft games such as: Assassins Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals Fenyx Rising at the same launch time.
Unlike Luna +, Ubisoft is limited to broadcasting to one device at a time. No prices have been announced for this channel, but Amazon has plans to acquire more of these channels from different publishers.
And because Amazon owns the Twitch game streaming service, Luna + users can access it. Users can access Twitch broadcasts of available games, as well as play the games they are watching in real time.
She said Amazon: The (Luna) service will work on its Fire TV Stick, and on Windows PCs, and Macs. The service will also work on Apple smartphones and iPads using web applications. As for the Android system, the company said: The support is coming soon.
To play the games, subscribers can use a keyboard, mouse, or a bluetooth controller. Amazon will also sell a controller for the platform called Luna Controller.
Similar to the controller for the (Estadia) service from Google, the Luna Controller connects directly to the cloud through (Wi-Fi), and according to Amazon, this reduces latency by 17-30 milliseconds. By using this joystick, users will also be able to switch between different devices instantly as they are not directly associated with any of them. The Luna Controller will be available for $ 50 during Early Access.
It should be noted that the (Luna) service is now only available in the United States. There is no information about when it will be put on the global market.
