Epic Games Store Is Adding Achievements Next Week!

Epic Games company is excited to reveal that the initial rollout of Epic Achievements system is almost here. That means that starting next week, you can begin collecting XP by earning Epic Achievements in select games.

“Over the last year, we’ve worked closely with some of our development partners to bring Epic Achievements to life. Thanks to their help, once we launch, you can start racking up XP in these games: Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena, Zombie Army 4, Alan Wake Remastered, and more. We’re working to get these tools to more developers, so you can expect to see Epic Achievements popping up in your favorite games later this year.”

Previously, the platform introduced a different type of achievement – the so-called “developer achievements”. Those achievements are fully owned and operated by developers. This new Epic Achievements system adds additional benefits for players and brings them more in line with achievement systems on other platforms. The team expects this new system will roll out all developers on the Epic Games Store in the coming months.

The developer achievements will remain functional in games if developers have previously integrated them and they don’t wish to engage with the new Epic Achievements system. If a game that previously used developer achievements integrates the new Epic Achievements system, progress carries over, and you will automatically earn account XP.

How do XP and Epic Achievements work?

Epic Achievements are sorted into four tiers based on their XP value, with the Platinum Achievement being awarded upon earning 1000 XP in a game.

Games with Epic Achievements have a new Achievements detail page where you can share and track your progress. This page outlines all Epic Achievements available for the game, showcases your progress towards each, and highlights Epic Achievements you’re close to unlocking. Epic Achievements and your Achievement progress per game are now displayed in your library. You can also see all available Epic Achievements on Game Detail Pages while browsing in the store.

Here are the Epic Achievement tiers and the amount of additional XP you get for the Achievement: 

  • Bronze = 5-45 XP
  • Silver = 50-95 XP
  • Gold = 100-200 XP
  • Platinum = 250 XP
