On June 21 and 22, Amazon will make its gaming streaming service Luna available to all Amazon Prime subscribers (Amazon Prime Day).
Previously, you had to request access or sign up from a supported Fire TV device to try out Luna. However, for a limited time only, all Prime subscribers in the mainland United States will be able to immediately begin a 7-day trial of Luna.
Luna is available for Windows, Mac, and Fire TV, as well as iPhone, iPad, and “certain Android phones” over the web. Control, GRID, and Metro Exodus are among the titles available for $5.99 a month.
You may also pay $14.99 a month for the Ubisoft Plus beta channel after you have a Luna account. This unlocks a wide selection of Ubisoft games, including the most recent installments in the Assassin’s Creed, FarCry, and Watch Dogs franchises.
According to 9to5Google, Amazon is also offering a 30 percent discount on its dedicated Luna controller from June 14 to June 22, as well as a $40 discount on a bundle package that includes the Luna controller and a Fire TV Stick 4K.
If you’ve been interested in how Luna compares to Microsoft’s xCloud or Google Stadia and are a Prime member, now is an excellent time to do it. However, you need to adjust your expectations. We found that the service was hit or miss in our early test of Luna in October of last year: games load quickly, but the library of available titles is minimal, and internet rates of at least 25Mbps are required for smooth play.
