Fortnite, the popular battle royale game developed by Epic Games, is now available on Amazon Luna, the cloud gaming service developed by Amazon. The announcement came just in time for Star Wars Day, which Fortnite celebrated with the release of new cosmic items. Currently, Fortnite is available on Luna in the US, Canada, Germany, and the UK.
Playing Fortnite on Amazon Luna
Amazon Luna offers two ways for players to access Fortnite:
1. Prime Membership
Anyone with an Amazon Prime membership can play Fortnite on Luna. There is no extra charge for Prime members to play the game.
2. Luna+ Subscription
Players who do not have a Prime membership can subscribe to Luna+ for $10/month, which will allow them to access Fortnite, among other games available on the platform.
Fortnite on Other Platforms
Fortnite is also available on other platforms for free, including consoles and PC. Xbox users can play Fortnite via Microsoft’s cloud gaming service, which does not require a Game Pass Ultimate membership to stream.
Supported Devices for Amazon Luna
Amazon Luna is compatible with several devices, making it accessible to players who do not own expensive hardware. Supported devices include:
- Smart TVs
- Via browsers for iPhone and Android phones
The Luna controller, as well as PlayStation and Xbox controllers, are supported. Mouse and keyboard is also an option.
Amazon’s Commitment to Accessibility and Affordability
Amazon’s commitment to making gaming more accessible and affordable is evident in the company’s investment in cloud gaming and game streaming services. In a statement, Amazon boss Daniel Rausch noted that Fortnite was the most-requested game from Luna customers in the US.
Free Games for Amazon Prime Members
In addition to access to Fortnite on Luna, Amazon Prime members can download a series of free games in May as part of their membership. Games available include Lego DC Super-Villains, Resident Evil 2, Overcooked, and Tim on Frog Island.
With its availability on Amazon Luna, Fortnite continues to expand its reach to even more players, without the need for expensive hardware. Whether on Luna or other platforms, players can continue to enjoy the game’s popular battle royale gameplay for free.
