We are excited to announce the release of Amazon Lumberyard Beta 1.5, which includes 210 new improvements, fixes and features to Amazon’s free, AAA game engine deeply integrated with AWS and Twitch. Lumberyard Beta 1.5 introduces an Asset Builder SDK, so game developers can track, reload, automatically rebuild, and process any asset formats their game requires. Additionally, Lumberyard Beta 1.5 adds support for OSVR virtual reality devices, new component entities so developers can build gameplay with less engineering support, distance-based particle effects optimization, and more. Read about the update in the GameDev Blog and the Lumberyard Beta 1.5 release notes.
