Amazon Luna, the company’s cloud gaming platform, is now available in all 50 American states to stream your favourite games. The service, which launched in early access in September 2020, will be accessible to all Amazon customers starting today.
In addition to making its availability more widespread, Amazon has also expanded the Luna viewing experience by offering two new subscription channels: Luna Plus and Ubisoft Plus. Amazon Prime members will have accessibility to a monthly cycle of games as part of their membership. It has also announced that the Retro Channel and the Jackbox Games Channel will join its current portfolio of channels.
Luna Plus allows for a more TV-like experience with access to more than 100 games. The Retro Channel, which will include games such as Street Fighter 2 and Metal Slug 3, and the Jackbox Games Channel, which will enable customers to invite non-subscribers to a multiplayer game, are the two new subscriptions to the service.
Ubisoft Plus offers access to over 100 Ubisoft games. Luna Plus is available for $9.99 a month. The cost of Family Channel is $5.99 per month. A subscription to the Retro and Jackbox Games channels costs $4.99 a month, while a subscription to Ubisoft Plus through Amazon Luna costs $17.99 a month. It costs $14.99 per month or $139 per year to subscribe to Amazon Prime, including Prime Video, free delivery, and other benefits.
Those who sign up for Luna Plus or Family Channel before March 31 will be able to lock in their original cost of $5.99 for Luna Plus and $2.99 for Family Channel for as long as they keep their Early Access membership active.
The Retro Channel allows players to play classic games from their childhood, such as Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., Pacman, and more. Players can participate in nostalgic challenges against their friends to see who will win each game. If you’re looking for more modern options, then the Jackbox Games channel has you covered with party packs like Drawful 2 or Quiplash 2.
Amazon Prime Video subscribers get exclusive access to the Ubisoft Plus channel when they subscribe through Luna, which will enable customers to enjoy Devil May Cry 5, Observer: System Redux. You don’t have to worry about buying anything extra because everything is included in an Amazon Prime membership!
