The era of Cloud gaming is upon us, and while the announcement of this year’s next-gen consoles has the entire entertainment industry in a frenzy, Amazon has still found the time to announce a new service catered toward the genre’s less-tangibly-minded consumers. Cue Amazon Luna — the Cloud-based gaming service that’s primed to change the industry forever.

Debuting on PC, mobile, and Amazon Fire TV later this year, Luna is poised to become one of the biggest names in the streaming industry. Within, users will be able to subscribe to various gaming “channels” and services, similar to something that you might see from a cable television provider. Each channel will be catered toward a curated type, and feature classic games, as well as new titles, which are slated to make their debut over time. One of Luna’s first inclusions, dubbed the Ubisoft game channel, will feature some of the publisher’s most popular IPs, including Assassins Creed, Far Cry, and Immortals, which are all playable in 4K resolution, without lengthy downloads or updates. Alongside the service, a $50 Alexa-enabled Luna Controller has also made its debut. When Luna is fully released, players will be able to subscribe to their favorite channels for around $6 a month. Head to Amazon’s landing page to sign up for early access to Luna’s Cloud-based service.

Purchase: $6/Month
