Wargaming and Frag Lab Announce Development of a New Next-Gen F2P MMO Shooter Built with Amazon Game Tech

Wargaming is proud to announce that the company is partnering with Ukrainian developers Frag Lab to build a next-generation free-to-play shooter using nearly a dozen Amazon Web Services (AWS) products, Amazon GameLift dedicated server hosting, and the Amazon Lumberyard AAA game engine.

Frag Lab is a 125-strong studio, based in Kiev, established by a team that previously worked on the Crysis franchise, Battlefield 2 and most recently, Warface, a free-to-play online first-person shooter.

“When Frag Lab approached us with their vision of what they wanted to develop, we felt that it perfectly matched our core values, and their passion was palpable,” states Shahzad Khan, Product Director, Wargaming. “We knew by combining their experience working on a successful shooter with our unrivaled free-to-play expertise, together we could bring this vision to life.”

“Having Wargaming as a publishing partner was the obvious choice for us; they have a great wealth of experience in delivering successful titles to players worldwide,” states Maxim Dembik, Frag Lab CEO. “We started this ambitious project from scratch with nothing but our collective knowledge, and this gave us the opportunity to choose any technology we wanted. We’re always looking to embrace new tech and we’re glad we did: Amazon Lumberyard is the perfect fit for our vision.”

Amazon Game Tech gives developers everything they need to create and connect amazing games by bringing together solutions from across Amazon. Wargaming and Frag Lab are using Amazon GameLift to operate and scale their multiplayer servers alongside nearly a dozen AWS products like Amazon Route 53, Simple Storage Service (S3), and Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), and is creating the game with the Amazon Lumberyard game engine.

“Amazon is obsessed with helping game developers be successful at every stage of development, and we’re excited to work with Wargaming and Frag Lab as they build, scale, and operate this new project globally,” said Brian Taptich, Vice President, Amazon Game Tech. “Wargaming and Frag Lab are known for high-fidelity, low-latency multiplayer games that are insanely fun, and we can’t wait to see what they build using Amazon Game Tech.”

A public announcement, which will feature more details on the entire product, is scheduled for later this year.

          1. no, its not ok
            anything what gives you an advantage for money in gameplay is not ok in a f2p game.
            premium tanks (op ones), ammo and even consumables are not ok

  2. Warface doesn’t boost me with confidence. That game started out great for a f2p shooter when it was in beta. Then they experimented too much and made everything terrible and a grind fest and boring. Then they could not fix the mess they made and sold it to my.com “AW people” that turned it into a p2w game overnight and tossed it on consoles.

  3. My advice . Don’t start a game with wargaming running it . It will be a money pit and they will make it pay to win and not care about what you as the players says.
