Overview

For products published to the Epic Games Store, you can enhance your users’ experience with Epic Games Store achievements. These achievements extend the functionality of Epic Online Services achievements and can be used to reward users with experience points (XP) for interacting with your product.

Users can review both their own and their friends' achievements through the My Achievements page of the Epic Games Store. Additionally, products with Epic Games Store achievements enabled feature a dedicated Achievements page on their store presence that highlights the achievements available to users. Users can also choose to browse games with achievements on the Epic Games Store, promoting greater visibility for your product.

Once Epic Online Services achievements have been implemented in your product, adding Epic Games Store achievements to your product can be done directly through Dev Portal - additional code is not required.

Note: If Epic Games Store achievements are added to your product, these achievements display in users’ in-game social overlays in place of any Epic Online Services achievements.

The process for enabling Epic Games Store achievements for your product includes the following steps:

  1. Preparing your product for Epic Games Store achievements.
  2. Defining your Epic Games Store achievements in the Dev sandbox.
  3. Pushing your achievements to the Stage sandbox.
  4. Submitting your achievements for review by the Epic Games Store team.
  5. Pushing your Epic Games Store achievements to the Live sandbox.

For detailed instructions, review the Epic Games Store achievements setup guide.
