Launch - Amazon GameLift
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


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.
