Amazon Luna, a cloud gaming service that allows console-free game streaming, is now available on select LG smart TVs. LG announced that its smart TV models launched between 2021 and 2023 and running webOS 6.0 or later are compatible with the Amazon Luna app. This gives LG Smart TV users a wide variety of games to choose from for streaming over the cloud.
LG Smart TV owners in the US, Canada, Germany, and the UK can play Amazon Luna games directly from the Home Screen Game Card on 2023 LG Smart TVs or by downloading the Luna app from the LG Content Store on LG Smart TVs released between 2021-2023.
Users can begin playing by connecting a Luna Controller or a Bluetooth-enabled controller compatible with their LG Smart TV. Players can also use the Luna phone controller that allows them to play using an iPhone or Android phone as a controller through the Luna controller app, which is available as a free download in the iOS, Android and Amazon app stores.
Luna offers various subscriptions that unlock libraries of games across various genres. Amazon Prime members can play Fortnite and a rotating selection of games at no additional cost, and Ubisoft PC gamers can connect their accounts to play select games they already own. Some popular titles on Luna include Resident Evil 2, LEGO DC Super-Villains, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Those interested can also subscribe to Ubisoft’s subscriptions to access a vast catalogue of games.
LG TVs have already had access to Nvidia’s GeForce Now app. It has also worked previously with Google to make its Stadia service available on LG’s Smart TVs before the cloud gaming service was eventually shut down.
In related news, Ubisoft is currently also negotiating a deal with Microsoft to get access to Activision’s catalogue of current and future games for up to 15 years. In other words, all the titles that will be released by Activision over the next 15 years will be available on Ubisoft+.
