The latest update to Amazon's Lumberyard game engine has brought with it 218 improvements, fixes, and features across 20 of Lumberyard’s components.

Among those new additions is an update to the Lumberyard particle editor -- shown in the video above -- which will now be capable of supporting GPU-simulated particles that make better use of graphics hardware.

The addition of GridMate Gem will make building multiplayer games easier, allowing devs to use the Lumberyard Flow Graph to create multiplayer lobbies without the need for C++. 

Amazon has also added even more mobile support for Android and iOS devices, such as the Samsung Note 5, Motorola Nexus 6, iPhone 6s, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro.

For the full list of improvements, and to download Lumberyard Beta 1.2, head on over to Amazon's official blog
