The most common complaint about the Epic Games Store – other than that its ruthless pursuit of exclusives is anti-consumer – is that its lacking many features that Steam users take for granted. Features such as cloud saves, a shopping cart, easy Humble Bundle support, screenshots and more have been available for years on Steam, but Epic is still missing them with its store.
Epic intended to reassure customers earlier this year when it posted a roadmap of content for the Epic Games Store – which included such welcome features as the shopping cart, a store redesign, additional payment methods and more. However, since then Epic has been quietly pushing back the proposed release dates of multiple new features – and several ones that were supposed to come out in July have been put back at least a month.
As noted by PC Invasion, Epic has pushed back ‘Humble Bundle Integration’, ‘Player Play Time Tracking’, ‘Improved Patch Sizes’, ‘Store Video Hosting’, and perhaps most surprisingly, the proposed ‘Store Page Redesign’ from July to August.
