Amazon Luna cloud gaming continues free access for Prime members with 4 new games

With other cloud gaming services like Google Stadia shutting down and recent layoffs taking their toll on Amazon Luna, the future of the game streaming service seems bleak, but Amazon Luna is continuing to truck ahead with business as usual. Nearly a year since starting the trend, Prime members continue to have access to a small selection of free games on Luna. For the month of February, Prime members can play Yakuza Kiwami, WRC Generations, Potion Permit, and SkateBIRD without paying a dime or signing up for any services. While this is the third month that SkateBIRD has been offered for free, the other three titles have never been available for free. Just fire up a compatible device, connected a gamepad or use a phone as a controller, and start playing in seconds. Last month, Luna arrived on select LG TVs and Amazon consolidated its Luna subscription plans, so the service is certainly not sitting idle. New games being added in February for paid subscribers include Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider and Sail Forth.

Here is the list of the first free Luna games for Prime members in 2023

Amazon is continuing to offer free Luna cloud gaming for Prime members into the new year. For the month of January, Prime members can play Beach Buggy Racing 2: Hot Wheels Edition, Monster Truck Championship, Lumines Remastered, and The Jackbox Party Pack 2, which includes five different party games. Those first two have been included in the list of free games for Prime members in the past, but Lumines and the Jackbox Pack are new offerings. These Luna games are playable on most Fire TV models, computers, phones, tablets, and newer Samsung Smart TVs. They work best with the Luna Controller, thanks to its ability to connect directly to Luna’s game servers over wifi for reduced latency, but generic Bluetooth, Xbox, or PlayStation controllers work as well. If you don’t have a controller to use, you can use your phone as a virtual controller to give the service a try without spending any money.

Prime members can now play their Ubisoft PC games on Amazon Luna for free

Ever since Amazon Luna launched, customers have been able to subscribe to a Ubisoft+ Channel which allows them to play about 40 different Ubisoft games for $17.99 a month. If you prefer to purchase games individually instead of subscribing to a monthly service, you’ll be happy to hear that Amazon and Ubisoft have announced the ability to play select Ubisoft games you own on Amazon Luna for free if you are a Prime member. The game has to be among the approximately 40 Ubisoft games currently compatible with Amazon Luna. If you already own any of the listed games, you can sync your Ubisoft account within the settings of the Luna app to make your compatible library of games available in Luna. Any future purchases of compatible games from the Ubisoft Store will automatically show up in Luna. This announcement doesn’t change the ability for Prime members to play a selection of Luna games for free each month, as Amazon says that will continue as usual.
