Almost three years after coming out take on Steam, the Epic Games Store is about to get more robust support for achievements. Starting next week, you’ll have the chance to earn XP by completing specific tasks in certain games. Some of the titles that will support the out-of-the-door feature include Rocket league, Underworld, pillars of Eternity and Alan Wake remastered, with more to come later in the year.
Epic’s system has four levels of achievement, with each level granting you a different amount of XP. For example, by unlocking a bronze level achievement you will gain between five and 45 XP, while a gold achievement will net you up to 200 XP. Once you accumulate 1,000 XP in a single game, you will earn its Platinum Achievement.
With the update, Epic is also rolling out new pages where you can track and share the progress you make towards unlocking all of the objectives for a specific game. You will also see this information displayed through the library interface.
One thing to note is that this new system is different from the achievements of the Epic developers implemented about a year ago. This system will continue to be there for developers who don’t want to engage with the new one, although the company says it expects “this new system to be rolled out.” [to] all developers on the Epic Games Store in the coming months.
