Amazon Lumberyard 1.28 Beta is now available for download, bringing you a range of updates including updated Twitch Gem, an improved setup and installation experience, plus various smaller improvements and over 40 bug fixes.

With Beta 1.28, you as a game developer will benefit from a few of our favorite updates:

  • The new Twitch API Gem, which wraps the latest Twitch APIs. Now, you can integrate all of the latest features from Twitch into your game, and access them from both Script Canvas and Lua.
  • Quality-of-life improvements to the Setup Assistant and the Project Configurator. These improvements include clarifications around the installation type, clean up of the configuration options, and a progress bar to better track your builds in the Project Configurator.
  • Updated lmbr_aws CLI commands for managing several Cloud Gems, including the Player Account Gem, the Web Communicator Gem, and the Dynamic Content Gem. This coincides with a long-announced deprecation of the Cloud Gem Portal integration.

For more information on this release, read the AWS Game Tech Blog and the Lumberyard Beta 1.28 release notes.
