Epic achievements offer a new way to celebrate success
Epic Games is adding achievements to select games on the Epic Games Store, with development tools rolling out to others over time.

Users of the Epic Games Store will find that some of their games have been updated with new achievements to collect. While the first wave of games may be small, the tools will soon be available to all developers to add achievements if they wish.
It appears that the system behaves as a merger of Xbox’s Gamerscore and PlayStation’s Trophy system. Epic Achievements are classified into four categories based on how much XP they are worth. Tier list is below:
- Bronze = 5-45 XP
- Silver = 50-95 XP
- Gold = 100-200 XP
- Platinum = 250 XP
The Platinum achievement is earned after a player gains 1000xp from a game.
The first games to receive these achievements are Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena, Zombie Army 4, Alan Wake Remastered, and others.
A new page will be added to games that support Epic Achievements. The achievements detail page will allow users to track and share their progress. The page will also outline all the epic achievements available in the selected game. This information will also be available on the store page.
Epic teases that there may be more to do with your XP announcement post, saying, “We wait for more updates to drop as we drop new social features and player rewards later this year.”
Achievements first appeared in the Epic Games Store about a year ago when some developers could add them to their games. Those achievements will still be there, though under the new name “Developer Achievements”.
Players who have already acquired developer achievements need not worry as they will still be available to collect. If a developer chooses to add Epic Achievements to their game, developer achievements will be integrated and no progress will be lost.
