Quickly connect DIRECT for Games and Consumer Extended Reality (CXR) to your build process to eliminate time spent managing multiple tools, scripts, infrastructure and the build release library for your game or XR experience. A single script easily integrates DIRECT with the existing build process and moves the last-mile of the pipeline to the Amazon Web Services cloud. Using an API, you can manage and control orchestration of your pipeline any way you want.

Get your players into gameplay fast using the DIRECTGVR game engine integration with Unreal Engine 5, Amazon Lumberyard, and Unity 5 game engines. Typical game deployment processes require the availability of all game assets locally before gameplay can begin, which can lead to long wait times for both the initial game installation as well as returning player updates. The DIRECTGVR game engine integration only requires a minimum subset of content to be available before a player can enter the game, allowing game designers the ability to create a unique onboarding experience using the game engine’s authoring tools, which will significantly reduce wait times for new and returning players. The DIRECTGVR progressive onboarding capability uses independent pipelines to manage the deployment of game content to the player’s system from within the game engine. The Workflow API simplifies development by allowing an implementer to create and chain discrete, predefined system tasks using JSON without the need to write expansive functions.
Benefits of DIRECTGVR:
- API-driven build system integration that automates deployment and branch promotion of new builds throughout the last-mile pipeline.
- Byte-level differences for efficient data transfer during repository synchronizations.
- Event data streaming that provides continuous insight into acquisition funnel and operational health of the deployment pipeline.
Put an End to Version Fragmentation
DIRECTGVR solves the version fragmentation problem by generating all necessary update paths quickly and automatically utilizing the massively parallel computing resources of AWS. Existing players spend more time playing and less time updating their games, while new players automatically receive the latest version providing the fastest path to gameplay.
Increase Player Acquisition
- Quick initial install with our integrated web installer. No need for a generic installer.
- High-speed download of prereqs and game content.
- Support for multi-stage game installation.
- Progressive Onboarding.
- Fast sync to the latest version, no more patch/apply phase.
- Fault tolerant design.
- Automatic error recovery.
- Redundant delivery networks.
Forget about game patching and all of the hassles that come wtih version fragmentation. The updating process will never be the same with the DIRECTGVR release automation workflow.
