We are excited to announce Amazon GameLift now supports games built on Unreal Engine 5 with the latest update to the Amazon GameLift Server SDK. Amazon GameLift is a fully managed solution that allows you to manage and scale dedicated game servers for session-based multiplayer games. The latest version of the Amazon GameLift Server SDK 5.0 now supports Unity 2020.3, Unreal 4.26, Unreal 5.0, Go language, and custom C++ and C# engines. 

With this release, customers can integrate their Unreal 5 based game servers with the Amazon GameLift service. In addition, the latest Amazon GameLift Server SDK with Unreal 5 plugin is built to work with Amazon GameLift Anywhere, enabling developers to test and iterate Unreal game builds faster and manage game sessions across any server hosting infrastructure. The Amazon GameLift Server SDK 5.0 now gives game developers even more flexibility, power, and ease of use when it comes to managing Unreal based game servers.
