At the end of July, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney confirmed that the company was starting to roll out cloud saves for the Epic Games Store.
At the time, there was a catch: cloud saves were only available for ‘a couple of new games’, by which Sweeney meant Moonlighter and This War of Mine.
However, in an August Feature Update, the team behind the Epic Games Store have confirmed that they’ve added cloud save support in for even more games. You can find a list of all the games that currently have cloud save functionality below:
- Alan Wake
- Close to the Sun
- Darksiders III
- Enter the Gungeon
- Genesis Alpha One
- 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 team also adds that all Ubisoft titles have supported cloud saves “since launch through Uplay integration.”
The Epic Games Store is also working on enabling cloud saves for even more games across the storefront, and all upcoming games with said functionality should have it enabled at launch.
Humble Bundle keyless integration has also been enabled, allowing users who buy games through the Humble Store or in Humble Bundles to link their Epic Games account to their Humble account.
Users can then purchase games directly from the Humble store without requiring a redemption key. Games purchased from Humble will then automatically appear in the user’s Epic library.
Product pages in the Epic Games Store have also been revamped, meaning that store users can now see “beefier game descriptions, better release date visibility for upcoming titles, and […] additional imagery and videos.”
The team now say that the next set of upcoming features include improved installation experiences, better Epic-hosted videos for better curation, special patch optimisation, a revamped game library, and the playtime tracking feature.
