Amazon Luna subscribers can now buy individual Ubisoft games

They'll own the license for any game they buy on the service.

Amazon Luna

Late last year, Amazon Luna and Ubisoft deepened their partnership by allowing subscribers to stream the developer's games that they already own on PC. So it doesn't really come as a surprise that Amazon has chosen to team up with Ubisoft to debut a new feature on its cloud gaming service: The capability to buy games from the platform and not just stream them. Subscribers can now purchase select Ubisoft games from the developer's portal on Luna, and the selection includes several Assassin's Creed titles, the Far Cry games, Child of Light and Watch Dogs.

Customers will be able to purchase any game they want from within Luna, using their Amazon account and as long as their Ubisoft account is linked. The e-commerce giant says subscribers will own the license for any game they buy, and they'll be able to play either on Luna-enabled devices or on a computer if they download the title for offline play via the Ubisoft Connect PC launcher. The list of Luna-enabled devices include Fire TV devices, Chromebooks and phones.

All the titles a customer buys will show up in their Luna library, and all their in-game purchases will sync to their Ubisoft account regardless of where they pay for them. Of course, they'll only be able to stream the games on Luna as long as they're a subscriber or a Prime member, but they're not going to lose access to those titles completely if they stop paying for the service.

As 9to5Google notes, this move gives Luna shades of Google Stadia, which was the only cloud gaming platform that allowed users to purchase games when it was still around. Unfortunately, Amazon didn't say whether it has plans to expand game purchases and to sell titles from other developers.
