Epic Games has announced that it’s rolling out Epic Achievements on Epic Games Store next week. This system allows players to earn XP by completing Epic Achievements in select titles.
These select titles include Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Zombie Army 4, and Alan Wake Remastered. Epic is also sending out a set of tools for developers to easily and quickly implement Achievements for the Epic Games Store platform–so more games will likely be supported later this year.
There are four tiers of Epic Achievements with an XP range value attached to each one. The Platinum Achievement is awarded by earning 1,000 XP in a game. Bronze achievements give 5–45 XP, Silver 50–90 XP, Gold 100–200 XP, and Platinum 250 XP.
Games that have Epic Achievements now have a new page where players can track progress, as well as be displayed within the library. Epic Achievements can also be seen on game detail pages when browsing in the store too.
Epic Games Store already had achievements, but they were specifically “developer achievements,” which were fully operated by developers on a game-to-game basis.
These developer achievements will not disappear if developers already had them and choose not to implements Epic Achievements. Players who have earned these developer achievements will still get to keep them. If the developer does switch to the new system, progress will carry over and XP will be earned.
