Posted on

Fortnite is now available on Fire TV through Amazon’s cloud gaming service, Amazon Luna, in the United States, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Amazon Prime members can start playing the game today and all other customers can play with an existing Luna+ subscription or by signing up for a free seven-day trial of Luna+.

Although the popular game was removed from the Apple and Google mobile app stores years ago, Fortnite is still free to play through Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now. And now it’s playable on Amazon Luna, but you need a Prime membership or a Luna+ subscription. A Prime membership costs $14.99 per month and a Luna+ subscription costs $9.99 per month.

“Fortnite is the most requested game by Luna customers in the US and we are excited to bring the title to the service,” said Daniel Rausch, Amazon’s Vice President of Entertainment Devices and Services, in a blog post. “We’re committed to making gaming more accessible and affordable, without the need for expensive hardware.”

Luna allows users to play any Fortnite game mode on Amazon’s Fire TV, select smart TVs and streaming media players, PCs, MacBooks, Chromebooks, and through the browser on iPhone and Android mobile devices. Amazon notes that an internet speed of at least 10 Mbps is required to play Fortnite on Amazon Luna. Games can be played with Amazon’s own Luna controller or PlayStation and Xbox controllers, or with a mouse and keyboard.

Amazon also noted that Prime members will be able to play four games in May as part of Prime Gaming offer at no extra cost. The four games are: LEGO DC Super-Villains, Resident Evil 2, Overcooked! and Time on Frog Island.
