GOG Announces Amazon Luna ‘Team-Up’ to Support Available Titles

In a new blog post, gaming platform GOG announced a team-up with Amazon Luna that will allow players to use available titles.

This support will function on both platforms, and playing these titles will not require an additional purchase. The blog explains that “on Luna you’ll be able to play every game that you already own on GOG (and that is also available on Luna)”.

Further, users can “buy games that are available on GOG via Luna’s client and they will go straight into your GOG library”.

GOG did not confirm an exact release date for this collaboration. Instead, the blog only reveals that “you’ll find such GOG titles on Luna soon”.

Amazon Luna is the cloud gaming service that launched in 2022. Combining GOG with Luna should increase potential peripherals and user freedom. Players will get to use Luna’s cloud gaming or GOG’s offline gameplay.

In September 2023, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot compared the potential of cloud gaming to the popularity of Netflix.

Although the Epic Games Store and Steam are tough competition among gaming platforms, GOG specializes in DRM-free games.

GOG specifically reassured fans about that continued mission after teaming up with Luna. GOG wanted “to give you even more ways of enjoying your titles, while still keeping our mission of DRM-free gaming”.

A few months ago, Epic Games Store General Manager Steve Allison said that the store “isn‘t profitable yet”. This was revealed during an antitrust legal battle with Google.

GOG and Amazon Luna, a relatively new service, might fare a little better after teaming up. Expanding the users’ potential gaming library is always a plus.

Today’s GOG blog adds that “we’ll share more updates about our collaboration in the future”.
