On Trello by Epic Games The company published its own roadmap for the shop. Epic would like to introduce a preview function when you hover your mouse over the title. So when the mouse is over the title, a small map will appear which provides a more detailed preview of the game. This eliminates the need to click your way to the product page to find out what you want to know.
Moreover, achievements have finally been added, which should come into play with revised user profiles. Epic would like to improve its achievement system and possibly use a model similar to PlayStation. Players will be able to collect Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum trophies, which also provide experience points. Achievements are slowly being added for some titles, but over time all games in the store should receive their own achievements and prizes.

As mentioned above, Epic Games will also improve user profiles. These hubs are designed to display general information to players clearly and easily. The information includes statistics such as the number of games in the library, accumulated achievements, and playing time in hours. As with other platforms like Steam, there will also be a level system.
There are currently no exact release dates for the individual features, but we won’t have to wait long for these as they are all under “Up Next” on Trello. Small changes are also listed here, such as improvements to the wishlist.
Since the Epic Games Store was able to attract more than 52 million new users in 2020 and the company also wants to publish more exclusive titles for their store, it’s no surprise that they put a lot of work into making their store user-friendly and convenient.
