Amazon Luna has been a bit of a mystery since its launch in 2021. The cloud gaming service has a small library of games and has been slow to add new features. But now, there are signs that Luna may be finally coming to life.
n December 2022, Amazon launched the ability for customers to play select Ubisoft PC games they own by linking their Ubisoft+ account to their Luna account. Customers have loved having the option to play their games on more devices they own. With today’s launch, Luna is taking a big step forward to becoming a one-stop shop for Ubisoft games, enabling customers to purchase their favorite games on Luna.
Customers can now search for a specific game, like The Crew Motorfest, and purchase that game directly within Luna using their Amazon account and linking their Ubisoft account. When customers purchase through Luna, they own the game license, and they will be able to play on Luna or download for offline play via the Ubisoft Connect PC launcher. Purchases will automatically show up in customers’ Luna library and stay up-to-date across all compatible devices. Regardless of where a customer plays, in-game process and purchases will sync to their Ubisoft account.
Customers who purchase Ubisoft games on Luna can stream those games so long as they are Prime members or have an active Luna+ subscription. They also have the option to subscribe to Ubisoft+ and get unlimited gameplay to day and date releases and fan favorites for $17.99 per month.
How to get started
Customers can buy games without leaving Luna. Existing Ubisoft customers will sync their Ubisoft Connect account and new Ubisoft customers will need to sign up for an account and sync before they can purchase their game. Once they purchase, Ubisoft games will appear in their Luna Library (as well as their Ubisoft Connect PC launcher) and will be available to play instantly across any device where Luna is available.
It’s too early to say whether or not this is the first sign of Luna branching out. But it’s certainly a step in the right direction. It’s also a sign that Amazon is listening to customer feedback and working to make Luna a more attractive platform.
