We are excited to announce that Unreal Engine (UE) game developers can now more quickly access and integrate with Amazon GameLift with a new standalone plugin for UE. Amazon GameLift is a fully managed service that allows developers to quickly manage and scale dedicated game servers for multiplayer games. With this release, Amazon GameLift Plugin for Unreal Engine supports UE5, UE5.1, and UE5.2 for Windows and Mac OS.
Amazon GameLift Plugin for Unreal Engine includes updated Amazon GameLift SDK 5+ APIs, which allows customers to build, test, and deploy their games in the Unreal Engine Editor. In addition, the updated plugin is designed to work with Amazon GameLift Anywhere, enabling developers to test and iterate UE game builds faster and manage game sessions across different server hosting infrastructures including in the cloud, on-premises, or hybrid. In addition, the plugin user interface includes a new navigation experience and a bootstrap workflow to improve Amazon GameLift setup and deployment. Amazon GameLift Plugin for Unreal Engine gives game developers even more flexibility, power, and ease of use when it comes to building, testing, and deploying game servers from within UE.
The latest version of the Amazon GameLift Plugin for Unreal Engine is available in all supported Amazon GameLift regions, except AWS China Regions. Visit the Amazon GameLift Plugin for Unreal Engine GitHub repository to learn more and get started today.
