GOG Partners with Amazon Luna for Cloud Gaming

GOG, a gaming platform owned by CD Projekt, is venturing into cloud gaming through a partnership with Amazon Luna. The Luna cloud service, which streams games directly from Amazon’s cloud servers, will allow gamers to access their purchased titles across multiple compatible devices such as PCs, Macs, Android and iOS mobile devices, smart TVs, and Fire tablets. Using the Luna app and maintaining an internet connection are necessities for this service. Luna-compatible devices and controllers, like those of Xbox One and PS4, can also be used to play these games.

According to GOG’s announcement, gamers can play any game from their library on this platform, so long as it’s available on Luna. The popular Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077 are included in these available titles, and players that already have Amazon’s cloud streaming service can verify the accessibility of their other games. Importantly, it isn’t necessary to buy a game from GOG before playing it on Luna. If it’s available on both platforms, purchasing a game through Luna will add it to your GOG library. These downloads will maintain their DRM-free status even if bought from Luna, and players will still access GOG Galaxy features like cloud saves and achievements.

The expected launch date for this collaboration hasn’t been announced yet, apart from a vague “coming soon.” Access will be restricted to regions where Luna currently operates, namely the USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.
