Cloud save support is implemented for 18 games so far, counting Moonlighter, Alan Wake, GNOG and This War of Mine among them. All Ubisoft games have been supported by cloud saves through Uplay integration from the start. Epic Games has not rolled out cloud saves for every game on its store, because it is still ‘working with the developers of other released games to test cloud saves.’

Also, Humble keyless integration is launched in this update. If the Epic Games and Humble accounts are linked, games on the store can be bought from Humble without needing a key to type in. It’ll appear in the library with no extra hassle. In the update post, Epic Games stated that this is, ‘one step we are taking towards creating an open ecosystem for players, and we’re looking at more partnerships with highly reputable digital game sellers.’
