Epic Games have introduced another major update to their store. The update adds cloud saves for several new games and also redesigns game store pages. Furthermore, there's also keyless integration with Humble Bundle and Humble Store.
Epic Games have slowly but surely introduced a couple of major features on their store in the last few months. According to the official roadmap, the publisher plan to continue with updates that will bring new features and help the launcher to close the gap to Valve's Steam.
In the latest update, which arrived recently, Epic Games have introduced a fresh batch of big features including cloud saves, store page redesign and Humble Bundle and Humble Store keyless integration.
The redesigned pages offer beefier game descriptions, better release date visibility for upcoming titles, and allow for additional imagery and videos. Epic say that this is being done to give developers more control over the presentation of their games.
As for the keyless integration with Humble Bundle and Store, this will allow you to link your Epic Games account to your Humble account, enabling you to purchase games directly from the Humble store without requiring a redemption key. This feature can be enabled in the Epic Games Store Settings.
Epic Games also shared the full list of games that now support cloud saves. Here's all of them:
- Alan Wake
- Close to the Sun
- Darksiders III
- Enter the Gungeon
- Genesis Alpha One
- Hyperlight Drifter
- Kingdom New Lands
- Mutant Year Zero
- Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
- Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter
- The Sinking City
- This War Of Mine
- World War Z
The publisher also revealed what kind of store updates can players expect in the near future. One of the most notable additions will be patch optimization for developers, which will reduce the patch download sizes significantly.
Additionally, a new look and design are coming to game libraries. The first update in this process will include a list view which will display more of the game library on screen at once.
