Epic Games Store To Feature Cloud Saves And Other Features Coming Soon
Steam has controlled a noticeable portion of the online gaming retail market. Known for their regularly held sales, mod workshop, and more, they’ve firmly planted themselves within the industry. To raise the competition, Fortnite developer Epic Games opened up their own storefront called the Epic Games Store and they’ve become well-known for their exclusives with names like Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, The Division 2, and more. As they continue to develop user experience features and expand their selection, company CEO Tim Sweeney says they’ll be “making further improvements” soon.
Taking to inquiries on Twitter, Sweeney told curious minds what the roadmap for Epic Games will look like. It looks like the Epic Games Store will soon feature cloud saving capabilities for various games in their store, which will expand with an increase of selection as well.
We’ll be making further improvements to reduce duplicate account creation. Cloud Saves are live for several games and will expand soon. Other features are coming.
And Fortnite is going strong. The most recent in-game event came close to its all-time peak concurrency record.

In addition to cloud saves, the intention to continuously expand that, and various other planned user experience implementations, the Epic Games Store will continue to bring more games to their online retail front.
We think these upcoming curation and self-service features are necessary for success with a significantly higher volume of games. That’s why we’re not opening up more broadly yet.
