Luna +’s own gaming channel will launch games such as Resident Evil 7, Control, A Plague Tale: Innocence and Yooka-Laylee and The Impossible Lair for a starting price of $ 5.99 per month. Luna + will offer 4K resolution at 60fps for “selected titles” and allows subscribers to play on two devices simultaneously.
Amazon has also announced a Ubisoft gaming channel that will give subscribers access to Ubisoft games on the day and date they launch regularly, with support for 4K resolution and mobile gameplay. There is no mention of a price for the Ubisoft channel. According to Amazon, this is “the first of many Luna game channels under development where customers can play games from their favorite publishers and genres.”
Luna will also include integration with Amazon’s Twitch streaming platform, with Amazon announcing that “players will see Twitch streams for games on the service, and Twitch will be able to start playing Luna games immediately.”In addition to the service, Amazon has announced a Luna controller with Alexa enabled, which will connect directly to Fire TV devices to reduce latency between the controller and the game. The Luna Controller will be available for $ 49.99 during the early access period. Luna can also be played via mouse and keyboard or other Bluetooth game controllers.
People who are interested in Luna can sign up for early access now, but it is not clear when the early access period will begin.
