Three years after its debut in the USA, the Amazon Luna cloud gaming service also arrives here. You can play as if you were watching a streaming movie, without the need for a console and without downloading the video game onto physical media.
Amazon Luna is expanding to three more countries in Europe beginning today, widening the reach of Amazon’s cloud gaming efforts to tons of new potential subscribers. Even still, Luna’s “club” so to speak is fairly exclusive. With only a handful of countries having access to the service. However, Luna was much more closed off during its first year when it was only available in the US.
It’s also been months since Amazon added available to any new regions. With access to Luna having opened up in the UK, Canada, and Germany back in March. Nary a peep has come from the Luna team about further regional expansion until today’s official announcement. This signifies that Amazon is still looking to bring in new subscribers from new areas where Luna wasn’t available before. Even if it does so at a slow pace.
Like Luna in the US and other regions, customers will be able to stream games without any downloads, all exclusively from web apps. Games will be supplied from the rotating selection of games available via Amazon Prime, the library of titles in Luna+, Ubisoft+, and/or Jackbox channels, as well as free titles such as Fortnite. Supported devices include mobile phones, laptops, Chromebooks, and select TVs from Samsung, LG, and Amazon Fire TV.
The Amazon Luna Controller will also expand to these regions, with a limited introductory price of €39.99 through November 27.
