Networking for high-scale multiplayer gameplay

SpatialOS enables game creators to build rich, large-scale multiplayer experiences where hundreds or even thousands of players can play together in new and dynamic virtual worlds.


A networking engine built for scale

SpatialOS is built to handle low-latency, high-volume, high-throughput data replication.

It runs multiplayer networking as a separate server-side process, scaling to hundreds of millions of interactions a second – enabling thousands of players to join a single virtual world with increased levels of simulated content.

Architectures designed for your game

IMS enables high-scale multiplayer gameplay by combining the SpatialOS networking engine with additional technology components and tailoring this architecture for your project. This allows you to introduce more players, density, simulation or size to your game world.

We support all major platforms, with integrations for Unreal Engine and Unity plus SDKs for other game engines. Our people work with you to understand the right architecture for your game and tailor its components to your specific requirements.
