First Cloud Saves on Epic Games Store

Tim Sweeney tweets that cloud saves are now enabled for a couple of games on the Epic Games Store as the first step towards a larger rollout of this feature. He says: "Cloud saves are enabled for a couple of new games right now. We have a bit more work to do before rolling it out more widely." In response to a question about how this is implemented, he later tweeted: "Itís a manual process for the store team per game but it usually doesnít require developers to update their games." Thanks PCGamesN.

Lastly, the fact that you haven't put any money into EGS is telling.

No, the sole reason is really just not wanting to spread my games between even more clients. I'd consider Steam, GOG, uPlay and Origin as my main clients.

Aside from that, I do already or would buy/own games on B.net, Bethesda.net, RSC and EGS if I "have to".

I have EGS installed for the freebies but they simply have not given me a reason to do business with them yet.
The exclusives don't interest me. I very rarely buy games on release or at full price. I will usually always wait for patches and a complete version (GOTY).

I'm not intentionally avoiding them because of a fear of losing my library. I'd feel a lot safer with EGS than with the MS Store, for example.
Once games like Metro GOTY or Redux come to Steam, I will probably buy Steam keys (from e.g. Fanatical) just to avoid that client fragmentation but not because I have doubts about EGS' existence.

Wait, I'm not happy with EGS vis-a-vis "exclusives", but I got a bunch of paid and free games on there... But this dude spends his time writing (recently well written) long rambling posts in defense of them and yet has nothing on the platform?!



edit: I see now you said you have the free games... but.. I'm keepin the post!
