Epic Games Store Unlocks Achievements Next Week

Standardized Achievements Largely Replace Developer Achievements

For over a year now the Epic Games Store has allowed developers to add their own achievement systems to games. While this saw a wide disparity in what achievements looked like, it worked for many. Starting next week however a unified solution will provide a more consistent experience.

While we don’t have an exact date, we do know sometime next week a variety of games will get these standardized achievements. The first batch of games includes Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Zombie Army 4, and Alan Wake Remastered. More developers will be added shortly and past games can implement these as well.

These achievements can offer as few as 5 points or as many as 200. Each game is required to have an even 1000 points available. You’ll be able to track your progress on a special page in the Epic Games app. Developer options will remain for games which don’t take the time to implement this new feature. Developers can also transition those over, granting these new points to those who completed old achievements.

We’ll be checking these out for sure, always cool to see a new system go live. In the meantime, check out some of those great games, such as Kena: Bridge of Spirits. You can view a trailer for it below.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
