Get ready, become a hunter! Epic Games will launch its achievement program this week in a handful of games available in the Epic Game Store. This system is called Epic Achievement, which extracts familiar parts from other platforms and merges them together.
Epic’s achievements are somewhat similar to the digital rewards of Xbox and PlayStation. Each game has a total of 1000 XP, you can get it by playing the game, and you can get more after you finish it. Each achievement will provide a certain amount of XP, which determines the ranking of the reward. This is the breakdown:
- Bronze = 5-45 XP
- Silver = 50-95 XP
- Gold coins = 100-200 XP
- Platinum = 250 XP
Earning 1000 XP in the game will get the coveted Platinum achievement, which will give you an extra 250 XP in your Epic Games profile. The experience gained is used to profile the leveling system, a bit like what Sony did with the PlayStation Trophy. There is no word on whether these achievements or levels will grant any privileges for in-game content, game discounts, or recognition other than bragging rights among friends, but they are happy to be included in the Epic Games launcher.
Epic Achievements will begin to appear in the healthy first-round game list next week, including Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Hades, Alan Wake Remastered, Rocket League, Pillars of Eternity, Zombie Army 4 and more. Epic stated that it “is working hard to make these tools available to more developers, so you can expect to see Epic Achievements appear in your favorite games later this year.” It should also be noted that although Epic has already The “Developer Achievements” tools are provided in the Epic Store title, but these tools will not automatically transition to this new system. However, developers will have the ability to translate these achievements into a new Epic version.
