Epic Store Update brings improved Humble integration

Please wait...

The Epic Games store has recently been updated, and there's a whole host of new features which have been added, including improved integration to Humble Bundle, among improved product page design and expanded cloud save support.

Games purchased from the Humble will now automatically be added to your Epic Games account, should you be logged in to the service. You can do this by going to the settings page on the Humble website, and connecting your account to Epic Games using the link. 

It makes life really convenient, with true keyless activation of games obtained through the Humble site, and will also go some way to end key reselling, which has been met with controversy in recent times with sites such as G2A.

The update also brings cloud saves to a whole raft of new games, including;

  • Alan Wake
  • Close to the Sun
  • Darksiders III
  • 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

Finally, the new product page layout adds more relevant information such as developer details, minimum requirements, tags, ratings and projected release dates, in a much nicer layout as you can see below.

Epic also talked about what's coming next, including a promised new look for game libraries, a special optimization patch for developers that will reduce patch download sizes, and the ability for developers to host trailer videos on the platform itself.

AFAIK could saves aren't available in Hyperlight Drifter unless something has changed in the last 24 hours.

This is a new update, I believe, so they should be now, yes.
