Achievements are coming to the Epic Games Store

Fortnite giant Epic Games is adding achievements to its digital storefront.

In a blog post, the firm said that this feature would be launching "next week." Achievements come in four tiers – bronze, silver, gold and platinum – which give players five-to-45 XP, 50-95 XP, 100-200 XP and 250 XP respectively.

These are the latest in a long list of features that Epic is bringing to its storefront following its release in December 2018. Developers have had access to achievements for over a year now, but this new addition apparently brings achievements "in line" with those found on other platforms.

Developer achievements aren't going to be lost with this new set of rewards, either.

On launch, achievements will be available in the likes of Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena, Zombie Army 4 and Alan Wake Remastered.

"Games with Epic Achievements have a new Achievements detail page where you can share and track your progress," the firm wrote.

"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."

In its first two years, the Epic Games Store attracted over 160 million users.
