The Epic Games Store promised quite a few features throughout 2019 but failed to deliver on many of them. As 2019 comes to a close, we’ve gotten an update on Epic Games Store development that shows us what’s coming in the near future.
One of the first upcoming features is reviews. As noted in this news post on the digital distributor’s official website, “backend integrations and component development” for critic reviews on product pages have been completed. This new feature is currently in testing and the customer base will be updated once it’s live.
The blog post also notes that coupons and a library grid view have both been launched; the former, in particular, is especially nice as it can actually save gamers money in the long run. The first iteration of coupons popped up during the Creator Appreciation Event and more opportunities to save some cash are expected to be on on the way in the near future.
Epic Games Store Development Making Progress on Wishlists
Another oft-requested feature for the Epic Games Store is wishlists. If you’ve never used one of these before, a wishlist is basically a way to save items that you want in a list so that you can purchase them later.
Like many other storefronts, the Epic Games Store wishlist can be applied to “any offer on the store”. You will, of course, be notified if there are any sales or promotions that currently affect that particular item on your wishlist.
Unfortunately, wishlists are no longer listed as “work-in-progress development”. The dev team says that there’s going to be more work than they had first planned, so it seems that there will be a delay for this getting deployed to customers.
The Epic Games Store has had a shaky start with mixed successes in its first year. While Epic Games Store development hasn’t been moving at the fastest pace, it’s nice to get a good look at what their plans are for the future.
What do you think of the Epic Games Store development for new features thus far? Is there anything that the store absolutely needs ASAP? Let us know in the comments below!
