Gaming in 2020 – The Losers

Ubisoft+ beta launches on Amazon Luna game streaming service

Just like with videos, streaming has become big in the gaming market to the point that even Amazon, which few will probably associate with gaming, has jumped on board. Oddly named Luna, Amazon's own brand of game streaming has just opened up its beta testing phase and one of its first partners is Ubisoft who has also made its premiere subscription available on the streaming service.

UPlay+ gets a name change as Ubisoft announces Stadia and Luna betas

Ubisoft announced today that its UPlay+ service is being rebranded to Ubisoft+.

New Ubisoft games on next-gen consoles will enjoy these perks

In just a few weeks, the gaming world will be welcoming the first new consoles from Microsoft and Sony to come in a long, long time. And with new consoles naturally come launch titles, some of which aren't exclusive to these new consoles. While you may be able to buy copies of new games for the current-gen Xbox One and PS4, you will not be able to enjoy the games at their best.
