PlayFab Game Services: More than Just a Backend
Dynamic game configuration
Store and adjust game configuration data on the server, and modify your game at any time without forcing players to update their clients. Data can range from simple integers or strings, to JSON blobs, or entire files.
Receipt validation & purchasing
Fight fraud by validating receipts or making purchases on the server. Built-in support for Steam, Facebook, Apple, Google, PayPal, Amazon, Microsoft, Sony, and others makes it easy to accommodate in-app purchases whatever your platform.
Multiplayer game server scaling
The simplest path to host and auto-scale your multiplayer game servers, anywhere in the world. Just upload your server build, select your regions, and implement our API for creating and joining game sessions. Server log files are archived automatically and kept for later debugging.
Host your game logic on the server, where it's easier to maintain, and harder to hack. Call any of the trusted Server API calls, or call out to your own server with a webhook. Integrates with GitHub for easy revision control.
