The Epic Games Store has expanded its cloud save support to more games, added Humble keyless integration and is not far from introducing a playtime tracking feature, an update posted today reveals.
The Epic Games Store initially rolled out cloud saves for just two games, freebies Moonlighter and This War of Mine, and now expanded the feature to support 17 games. They, thus, join Ubisoft titles that have had it since day one through Uplay integration.

Game pages on the Epic Games Store have also received improvements. You'll now see "beefier game descriptions" and "better release date visibility for upcoming titles" on each individual game page.
As far as the future is concerned, playtime tracking is "right around the corner" and described as "a critical piece for self-service refunds". You can read the feature update article in full on Epic's website.
