Epic Games have announced new Epic Games Store features, that will be coming in the upcoming year. These include critic reviews and wishlist, and should arrive soon.

Epic Games have released a new development update on their official blog post. This time, the company is looking back to 2019 and all the features that have been introduced to Epic Games Store but there's also a couple of neat additions planned for the start of 2020.

First, let's take a look at some of the new features. Coupons are now available from special events in the store. Players can get these and earn $10 off their future purchases on the store. You may have seen the first version of this with the Creator Appreciation Event, but more ways to earn are on the horizon - including some exciting holiday plans which include 12 Days of Free Games, starting 19 December 2019.

The library’s grid view is another feature that received some tweaks. It was revised to provide a more dense grid, so you can see more of your games at once. Also, list view now more prominently displays playtime and size on disk.

As for the upcoming features, Epic Games Store is introducing critic reviews and wishlist soon. Epic say that they have completed backend integrations and development for critic reviews on product pages and these are currently being tested. The feature will be live soon and an update will be released once critic reviews are done.

Wishlists have previously been listed as work-in-progress development but Epic say this feature requires more work than initially planned. "We’re working to bring Wishlist to the store. You’ll be able to wishlist any offer on the store and you’ll be notified of sales or promotions for that offer. We’ll keep you up to date as we move the Wishlist feature along," it's written in the blog post.

By the looks of it, this one is not just around the corner but it should arrive shortly after critic reviews. You can find more about these features in the full blog post .
