Amazon is now taking request for early access to their brand new cloud gaming service, Luna. Similar to Google Stadia, Luna allows you to stream games on your home devices, avoiding long downloads and updates. There’s also a Luna Controller with Cloud Direct technology for low latency control and smooth play. Users can even switch between screens seamlessly due to a direct connection from controller to cloud server. Luna will be available on Fire TV, PC, Mac, as well an iPhone and iPad web app at launch, with Android coming soon after.

Amazon also announced an additional new game channel featuring titles from popular video game publisher, Ubisoft, with 4K resolution and mobile gameplay. Subscribers to the channel will also have access to new titles like Assassins Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, and Immortals Fenyx Rising on release day.
