Amazon Prime members can now play Devil May Cry 5 in their browser | PC Gamer
Amazon game streaming service Luna has left its early access phase in the mainland US, and Amazon Prime members can now try it at no extra charge. Luna is similar to Google Stadia, except there's no a la carte game purchasing: Somewhat like the Prime Video service, Luna is made up of subscription 'channels' which offer access to themed selections of games for a monthly fee. A $6/month Luna+ subscription unlocks the service's main library, which includes games such as Dirt 5, Control, and Metro Exodus, while the $3/mo Family Channel, for example, offers games such as Skatebird and Garfield Kart.With today's launch, Amazon added a $5/mo Jackbox Channel featuring every Jackbox Party Pack, a $5/mo Retro Channel with games such as Metal Slug 3 and Castlevania Anniversary Collection, and the Amazon Prime Channel, which is free for Prime members.Right now, the Prime Channel includes Phogs!, Devil May Cry 5, Flashback, and Observer: System Redux. Those games will be available until April, at which point a new selection will be introduced: The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match Final Edition, Amnesia Rebirth, Tracks: Toybox Edition, and Mortal Shell. Starting March 8, Immortals: Fenyx Rising will also be available to play on the Prime Channel until March 15. I tried out Devil May Cry 5 in Chrome, and there's no hassle to it: I clicked a button, the game launched, and it even recognized my wireless Xbox controller when I turned it on. Within a few moments I was playing DMC5 at 1080p. It's kind of neat, to be honest.But it's nothing I'd use regularly. According to Amazon, the free Prime games can be played at 60 fps, but I was definitely looking at 30 fps, which was fine in cutscenes but offended my refined PC gaming senses while slicing up demons. (Update: This was a bug that has been fixed, Amazon says. I am getting 60 fps now, which looks a lot better.) There was also an ugly graininess that may have been the result of an intentional post-processing filter on Capcom's part, but notably, there's no way to change the graphics settings. It's not an acceptable PC gaming experience to me right now.
