The Epic Games Store has announced that it will be launching a new achievements system next week for users who haven’t been satisfied with the current system and how it compares to those offered by competitors such as Steam.

While achievements have already existed on the store in the form of “developer achievements” since last year, the latest system aims to be better with achievements that are now sorted into four tiers comprising Bronze to Platinum awards. Epic says that its new achievements platform also includes new tools for developers, which will allow them to implement achievements more quickly and easily.

Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena, Zombie Army 4, and Alan Wake Remastered will be some of the first games to implement Epic Games’ new achievements system.

Epic on how the new XP and achievement system works:

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. 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

Games with Epic Achievements will feature a new Achievements detail page that allows players to view the achievements that are available, as well as share and track their overall progress. Epic has promised that it will be unveiling even more new social features and player rewards later this year.

  1. This is it guys! The ONE feature we have all been waiting for! The reason for us all to use EGS as our main platform of choice! I can finally stop focusing on Steam and GOG and stick to EGS for everything! This will be the feature that tips the scales in Epic’s favor. EGS will soon become the dominant PC platform. Microsoft, Sony, even Nintendo will all bring their top games to EGS, 3rd-party companies will flock to it like ants on a sugar cube, and EGS will push PC gaming into a new golden era beyond what we ever thought was possible.

    You’ll never play them all anyway.

    Yep, between them, GOG, Steam, EA, and now Amazon, I truly cannot count how many I’ve snatched and then probably only played maybe a dozen or two. Meanwhile I’ve got a about a dozen, or so, core games that I’ve put hundreds of hours into and still go back to replay.
