Epic Games Store games will have achievements to unlock
Let’s platinum some games in the Epic Games Store?
THE Epic Games Store made its name through a series of exclusive titles and limited time play, as to help differentiate it from the Steam. A feature that was missing compared to the competition is a system of achievements, but Epic Games has now announced on Twitter that an initial version of unlockable achievements is being released for certain games.
The post specifically shows Ark: Survival Evolved, which already has achievements through Xbox, PlayStation 4 and Steam. A complete list of games featuring achievements while Epic Games works to change and tweak its system, its tweet says the team “will have more information to share about achievements in the future”.

Giving players an extra incentive to continue with a game by completing certain challenges or goals set by their developers is undoubtedly a good move for the platform, especially considering how many exclusive titles it has. Thanks to the free weekly games, the Epic Games Store has grown enormously since launch in terms of simultaneous users, so it makes sense that they are finally taking steps towards a more robust service.
For all developers who are publishing their games on the Epic Games Store as they earn achievements, the company provides an example page that demonstrates operations related to these new unlockables.
