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.

I mean cloud saves in general are welcome but what a strange implementation, just use an API guys. Oh well whatever, at least they managed to get something on that Trello board.

Don't be crazy, developing an API requires API developers, this hack could be done by any web dev.

Yeah I look at this as a "well we did one thing from our trello board!" sort of effort. They really need to step it up if they are serious about user adoption. The guy working on PlayNite by himself is doing better at creating a client, its embarrassing.

But it makes total sense, the store doesn't care about you as customer or about your experience. It's to make Epic and Developers more money. And spending less money to get a feature done is always better to them than spending the money on a full automated cloud syncing API with management interface for the user that Steam has. I wonder how many people even know you can literally see what files are in your cloud storage per game and purge everything or only something.
