The latest version of Unreal Engine 4 has a bunch of new security features which will also help prevent any exploits. We also plan to put measures in place to protect players from sniffers. What makes this game any different from what's already presently available; Nebula Realms, Atom universe, Four King's Casino And Slots? If I'm loyal to Atom Universe for example, what would make me support this game? Without commenting on any other world, we believe AviLife will be the most advanced console world. I was also Home user from the original closed beta, I understand what works, what people want, and what will make AviLife the best place to play.

Will there be a phone/tablet app companion? Not currently planned at this time but it's something I want to look into down the road. Will there be brand name content from Sony, Microsoft and other studio developers & companies? This is something we hope to do but it's a little early to say at this time.
