Fortnite arrives on Amazon Luna today

From The Verge: Fortnite, one of the world’s most popular games, has also become a de facto test of the public’s interest in streaming games like they stream YouTube or Netflix. It’s been completely free to stream from Nvidia’s GeForce Now or Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming to almost any device you own, no download and no paid subscription required.

Today, Amazon Luna is joining them. “Fortnite has been the most requested game from Luna customers in the U.S. and we’re thrilled to bring the title to the service,” reads a statement from Amazon devices and services VP Daniel Rausch.

Unlike its competitors, Amazon will require a paid subscription. For the month of May, you can stream Fortnite for free with the same Amazon Prime subscription you might already use for free shipping, Prime Video, Prime Music, and so on. But after that, it’ll be $9.99 a month for a Luna Plus subscription after a seven-day free trial.

Also, know that the Luna Plus catalog of games wasn’t very large the last time we checked. (Note: Nvidia limits free accounts to an hour per session, so it has caveats of its own.)
