Amazon Luna subscribers can now buy individual Ubisoft games

What To Know

  • In late the previous year, Amazon Luna and Ubisoft solidified their partnership, granting subscribers the ability to stream Ubisoft’s PC games that were already in their possession.
  • Importantly, Amazon assures subscribers that they will possess a legitimate license for each purchased game, granting them the flexibility to play on Amazon Luna-supported devices or, if they prefer, on their personal computers after downloading the title via the Ubisoft Connect PC launcher.
  • However, it’s worth noting that the privilege of streaming these games on Luna is contingent on active subscription status, be it through Amazon Luna or Amazon Prime.
  • In the event of subscription discontinuation, access to these titles will not be permanently revoked, offering a degree of reassurance to subscribers.

In late the previous year, Amazon Luna and Ubisoft solidified their partnership, granting subscribers the ability to stream Ubisoft’s PC games that were already in their possession. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Amazon has chosen to forge an alliance with Ubisoft once again, introducing a groundbreaking feature to its cloud gaming service: the option to not only stream games but also to purchase them directly from the platform.

Now, subscribers have the opportunity to acquire select Ubisoft titles through Luna’s developer portal, expanding their gaming options considerably. The available catalog includes an array of renowned titles such as various entries in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the Far Cry series, Child of Light, and Watch Dogs.

The purchase process is made seamless, allowing customers to acquire their desired games within the Amazon Luna environment using their Amazon accounts, provided they have linked their Ubisoft accounts. Importantly, Amazon assures subscribers that they will possess a legitimate license for each purchased game, granting them the flexibility to play on Amazon Luna-supported devices or, if they prefer, on their personal computers after downloading the title via the Ubisoft Connect PC launcher.

A diverse range of Luna-enabled devices awaits, encompassing Fire TV devices, Chromebooks, and smartphones. All purchased titles will be neatly organized within a customer’s Luna library, and any in-game transactions will automatically synchronize with their Ubisoft account, irrespective of the purchase location.

However, it’s worth noting that the privilege of streaming these games on Luna is contingent on active subscription status, be it through Amazon Luna or Amazon Prime. In the event of subscription discontinuation, access to these titles will not be permanently revoked, offering a degree of reassurance to subscribers.

This development mirrors a feature reminiscent of Google Stadia, which, during its existence, was the sole cloud gaming platform allowing users to directly purchase games. Unfortunately, Amazon has not yet disclosed any plans to expand its game purchase offerings or to include titles from other game developers, leaving such prospects uncertain.
