Launch - Amazon GameLift


Use the following checklist to track launch items for your game hosted on Amazon GameLift. Items marked [Critical] are critical for your production launch.

  • [Critical] Set the fleet protection policy to full protection on all live fleets so that scaling down doesn't stop active game sessions.

  • [Critical] Set fleet maximum sizes high enough to accommodate peak anticipated demand, at minimum. We recommend that you double your maximum size for unanticipated demand.

  • Encourage your whole dev team to participate in the launch event and monitor your game launch in a launch room.

  • Monitor player latency and player experience.
