GOG is bringing its game library to the cloud with Amazon Luna

Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service has received a major boost

Soon, GOG users will be able to access their games through Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service. GOG and Amazon have today announced that they have partnered up to bring GOG’s DRM-free games to the cloud Amazon’s cloud services. Should developers opt in, their games will be made available to stream on Amazon’s cloud gaming service.

Sadly, this means that not all GOG games will be playable through Luna. Developers needs to opt in to make their game Luna compatible. Thankfully, all developers need to do is opt in, as GOG will make sure that their games run “hassle-free” on Amazon’s cloud services. No new game updates, or any additional effort at all, is necessary.

Games on GOG that support cloud saves and achievements will support these features on Luna. This will allow PC gamers to continue their games and save their progress across PC and the cloud. CD Projekt Red, the owner of GOG, has confirmed that their games will be available on Luna. Their games include The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077.

Amazon Luna is available as part of a Prime subscriptions, with Luna+ adding access to a library of titles for £9 per month. Amazon has previously partnered with Ubisoft to make their games available on the cloud through Ubisoft+.

Having access to your GOG gaming library is a great perk to have if you already subscribe to Prime. That said, I prefer to play my games natively on my devices. Will game developers opt in and make their games available to stream through Luna.

You can join the discussion on GOG teaming up with Amazon Luna on the OC3D Forums.
