It looks like cloud saves are now becoming live on the Epic Games Store. Back in March Epic posted a roadmap which indicated that cloud saves would be a “near-term” feature to implement, and now its CEO has just revealed that it is indeed being rolled out – though only for a few games, for now at least.
As spotted by an observant player (via Eurogamer) indie RPG Moonlighter, which was recently offered as a free game on the Epic Store, seemed to offer the option in its settings, with an ‘enable cloud save’ on-off slider. User ShyXLFT drew it to Epic CEO Tim Sweeney’s attention on Twitter asking if cloud saves were now live – and he confirmed it.
Sweeney’s response said “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.” So, it sounds like at least one other game apart from Moonlighter has got the feature already – and players are already finding out which one(s).
Given that in its roadmap Epic aimed to implement the feature in the near term – around May – hopefully this “bit more work to do” won’t take too long and we’ll start to see it become available for lots more titles on the store soon.
