Integrating your game client for Amazon GameLift - Amazon GameLift

Integrating your game client for Amazon GameLift

The topics in this section describe the managed GameLift functionality that you can add to a game client or backend service. A game client or backend service handles the following tasks:

  • Request information about active game sessions from the GameLift service.

  • Join a player to an existing game session.

  • Create a new game session and join players to it.

  • Change metadata about an existing game session.

Adding GameLift to your multiplayer game client is Step 2 in the Get started with custom servers. For more information on how game clients interact with the GameLift service and game servers running on GameLift, see GameLift and game client server interactions.

Prerequisites

  • An AWS account.

  • A game server build uploaded to GameLift.

  • A fleet for hosting your games.
