Fire TV users can avail Amazon Luna cloud gaming without an invite

Amazon’s cloud-gaming service, Luna, is now available to try for free in the US on select Fire TV devices without an invitation, the company has announced. Luna launched in early access last year, as an invitation-only service. Originally, customers also needed an invite to buy the Luna Controller, but Amazon now says it’s available to everyone.

If you have Fire TV just download the Luna app and start a a seven-day free trial to the Luna+ channel. After the free trial period ends your subscription renews at $5.99/month. For $14.99/month customers can also sign up for the Ubisoft+ channel in beta, granting access to games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Immortals Fenyx Rising.

Amazon sells its own controller for Luna, but the service works with other compatible controllers like the PS4 DualShock and Xbox controllers, along with support for mouse and keyboard. Right now the service offers streaming at up to 1080p/60FPS, with support for 4K streaming coming soon.

Signing up for Luna gets you a 7-day free trial of the Luna Plus channel, which costs $5.99 a month thereafter during early access and includes games like ControlMetro Exodus, and Grid. There’s also a Ubisoft Plus channel subscription for $14.99 a month which includes titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

As well as Fire TV devices, Luna’s early access is also available on Windows, Mac, select Android devices, and web browsers on iPhone, iPad, Windows, and Mac, but only after receiving an invitation. “If you don’t have a Fire TV you can still request an invitation to access Luna at amazon.com/Luna,” Amazon’s post reads. The service is currently limited the US mainland, excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and US territories.
