Berlin If you spend just under 18 euros a month, you will receive the “Ubisoft +” subscription with the publisher’s major titles from “Assassin’s Creed” to “Far Cry”. And finally, with an Amazon Prime subscription, you have access to a monthly changing selection of games at no extra cost. To try out Luna, Amazon grants a free trial week.
Broad support for devices
Prime subscribers, like Luna+ subscribers, can link an existing Ubisoft Connect account to Luna and use it to stream select Ubisoft games they already own to supported devices. This includes Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android mobile devices, Chromebooks, and Fire TVs and tablets.
It is controlled either with a mobile device on which the Luna controller app for iOS or Android is installed, with a compatible third-party controller or with the new Luna controller, which costs 70 euros and has WLAN and Bluetooth on board. Both the Luna controller and the controller app should allow control across multiple devices.
Cloud gaming makes you flexible
With cloud gaming, the game is streamed to the respective end device in a similar way to a film. Most of the computing processes run on the provider’s servers, which means that players need less powerful and expensive hardware at home and can usually play flexibly on many different devices.
You don’t have to worry about downloads, installations and updates with cloud gaming either. However, the games do not belong to the players in the end. You can only use them as long as your subscription is running.
Other cloud gaming providers include Nvidia with Geforce Now, Sony with Playstation Now and Microsoft with Xbox Cloud Gaming. Google only discontinued its Stadia video game streaming service at the end of January.
