News - Epic Games Store Cloud Saves Available For Select Games

Epic Games Store Cloud Saves Available For Select Games

The Epic Games Store has begun experimenting with cloud saves, a feature found in just about every platform from Steam to the Nintendo Switch. Epic CEO Tim Sweeney delivered the announcement on Twitter, saying "cloud saves are enabled for a couple of new games right now."

Unfortunately, the word "couple" seems to be literal here. Twitter user ShyXLFT said another individual discovered an "enable cloud save" function in the settings of the action-RPG Moonlighter. Engadget reports the other game is the survival strategy game This War of Mine. Sweeney didn't confirm which "couple of new games" have cloud saves enabled, but he did note the feature needs "a bit more work" before implementing it across the entire Epic Games Store.

When asked how the feature is implemented, Sweeney said that adding cloud saves is "a manual process for the store team per game." He implied the feature doesn't require any extra coding from the developers and games don't need any form of updates on the developer side for cloud saves to be enabled.

Epic unveiled a roadmap earlier this year, where cloud saves--and various other features--targeted a July release. A few other features expected to arrive in July are improvements to the library, a redesign of the store page, cutting patch sizes, and more.

Coincidently, the two free PC games offered through the Epic Games Store are Moonlighter and This War of Mine. From now through Friday, August 2, both titles can be snagged for the low cost of free. Alan Wake and For Honor will be the next free games up for grabs.
