Epic Games Store Finally Adds Cloud Saves, but Not for Every Game Quite Yet

Epic Games Store Finally Adds Cloud Saves, but Not for Every Game Quite Yet

More are on the way, once they start working.

Online backups are coming to the Epic Games Store. Announced today, Epic will be adding Cloud Save support for a select number of games, with more to come over time.

While this was announced as part of a larger store update today, it looks like support has been quietly rolling out over the past month. While not all Epic games are Cloud Save enabled just yet, Epic says it's working with developers to test and enable them, and that upcoming games with Cloud Save support will have it enabled at launch.

Here's a list of all the games now supporting Cloud Save on the Epic Games Store:

  • Alan Wake
  • Close to the Sun
  • Darksiders 3
  • Enter the Gungeon
  • Genesis Alpha One
  • GNOG
  • Hyperlight Drifter
  • Kingdom New Lands
  • Limbo
  • Moonlighter
  • Mutant Year Zero
  • Overcooked
  • Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
  • Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter
  • The Sinking City
  • This War Of Mine
  • World War Z
  • All Ubisoft games (via Uplay integration)

Epic is also launching keyless integration with the Humble Store, allowing users to link their Epic account to Humble and purchase games directly through Humble, without needing a key. Essentially, once you're linked, a purchase of a game for the Epic Games Store on Humble will then automatically appear in your Epic library. The publisher says it's also looking into more partnerships with other digital game sellers. (Probably not Steam, though.)

The Epic Games Store has been criticized for its lack of certain features that other digital storefronts also have, and Cloud Saves are a step forward for that, alongside improved curation tools and store pages. But those grievances aren't brought up as often as the more toxic reasonings that often leads to harassment of developers just looking for a storefront. Hopefully this will lessen the fuel for the fire, or at least make it easier to sort the honest critique from the chaff.
