Amazon Luna games

Amazon Luna has quite a list of games available, but are they any good? Game streaming platforms such as Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud have become incredibly popular in recent times as they aim to solve expensive issue with full game consoles like Xbox and PlayStation. With Stadia being nearly shutdown and all first-party development studios actually shutdown, xCloud seems like it is the best option when it comes to game streaming – no, there is another. Amazon Luna is Amazon’s response to services like Stadia and xCloud. Luna offers many games in collaboration with Ubisoft and their Ubisoft+ game subscription service, but what games can you play on Amazon Luna without paying the extra $10 per month for Ubisoft’s service? Well, there’s quite a selection, though most of them are indie titles with a few big names thrown in there. So what games are currently available on Amazon Luna without Ubisoft+?

While there’s still a huge list of games available on Amazon Luna without Ubisoft+, it really seems like they’re pushing you to subscribe to Ubisoft’s streaming service as that’s where your big AAA games will be available. If you do decide to fork over the extra cash for Ubisoft+ access on Amazon Luna, here’s what games you’ll gain access to:

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ultimate Edition

Immortals Fenyx Rising Gold Edition

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Ultimate Edition

Watch Dogs Legion Ultimate Edition

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Ultimate Edition

Far Cry 5 Gold Edition

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Far Cry 2

So yeah…if you’re looking to play all the AAA games like Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy games like Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six Siege, on Amazon Luna, you’re going to need to fork over the extra dough. Amazon Luna is currently in early access and not available to everyone, however you can request early access to the service. However, you shouldn’t go into this thinking it’s going to be a free early access trial period or anything like that, you’ll get a week of free early access and after that it’s going to cost you $5.99 every month if you want to continue using the service (or $14.99 per month for Ubisoft+). I don’t actually think that this is a terrible deal, in fact, I think it’s an incredibly reasonable price…if it works. You can also purchase an Amazon Luna controller that works like the Stadia controller and connects to a network rather than a specific device, so you can swap between devices with ease. The Luna controller is also Alexa enabled, though I don’t really know how many people would utilize this function, I know I wouldn’t. I’ll be starting my Luna trial here pretty soon, and I really hope that it doesn’t end up being another Stadia.
