Developers can now use Amazon GameLift with their preferred game engine. Whether it’s Amazon Lumberyard, Unreal Engine, Unity, or custom C# and C++ game engines, developers can leverage Amazon GameLift as a simple, fast, cost-effective tool for hosting dedicated game servers. The Amazon GameLift SDK download contains C# and C++ support and a prebuilt Unreal Engine plugin that accelerates and simplifies integration into Unreal Engine game servers.
Amazon GameLift also has new matchmaking functionality that can be used to intelligently select the closest available game server based on each player’s location, giving players the lowest possible latency by leveraging AWS’ broad global footprint.
