Amazon GameSparks, a managed AWS service introduced in preview in March 2022 provides game developers with features for building, running, and scaling the backend for their games and is now available in preview in AWS Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region. Amazon GameSparks makes building a game backend easy for game developers who have little to no cloud experience. Amazon GameSparks comes with Unity game engine support and out-of-the-box backend features that require minimal setup for game developers.

AWS will not charge for the use of Amazon GameSparks during the preview period. With this launch, Amazon GameSparks is now available in the US East (N. Virginia) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Regions. Amazon GameSparks provides a downloadable AWS SDK for Unity and other resources that includes a sample game, Cloud Code API Reference material, and a developer guide. Additional features, regions, platform support, and game engine integrations will be made available in future updates.
