What Makes a Great Game?
Seamless gameplay, interactive elements, and immersive environments are hallmarks of some of the most compelling games, but creating this type of gaming experience requires extensive infrastructure and resources, advanced game tech, and robust security features. At the event, insights were shared on how to harness the power of Tencent Cloud Media Services and Tencent Cloud EdgeOne, to build interactive and immersive global games that captivate players, with a focus on creating immersive games via video, audio, networking security and performance.
