Epic Games has been sluggish to add desired features to the Epic Games Store. Although the Steam rival started with a limited set of features, Epic Games has been open about its development process. The company’s Trello website displays a list of recently released features, as well as what’s coming up next and other projects planned for the future. A new feature has risen to the top of what’s upcoming after a recent Epic Games Store upgrade. That is a new cash-storage function in the wallet.
Users of the Epic Games Store will be able to “load money” into their accounts using the Epic Games Wallet. To put it another way, consumers will be able to quit paying for everything with their credit card or PayPal. Instead, they’ll be able to pre-load cash into their wallet when they have extra cash on hand and then store it for a sale or game launch when they aren’t sure whether they’ll have the cash on hand.
The Epic Games Wallet is only the first step in bringing more important features to the Epic Games Store. Cash cards and gifting cash to other users are two of the most popular options. Cash cards are widely used in many nations, and they allow users to deposit cash rather than keeping it for long periods of time, even if it only contains change.
On the other hand, there is presently no gifting system or gift cards available in the Epic Games Store. Due to the high costs of selling gift cards through third-party sellers, it may never get them. Users could send cash directly to other users without the use of a third party or a gift card if each Epic Games Store account had a wallet.
On the other hand, a wallet system does not give many advantages to users on its own. Epic Games, on the other hand, stands to gain a lot from it. That’s because wallet cash is still money that Epic Games has received, but it hasn’t been spent yet.
Epic basically becomes a bank in this respect, holding unused funds. It also enables Epic to provide refunds directly to wallets rather than through payment systems, letting the company keep the money rather than lose it.
The Epic Games Wallet will not be available in the Epic Games Store until a later date. If history is any indicator, wallets might take months, if not years, to complete. Epic Games isn’t known for rushing features to the Epic Games Store, but this one appears to be profitable.
The Epic Games Store is no stranger to criticism, so it’s natural that the wallet function has jumped to the top of the “Up Next” list, prompting some players to express their displeasure. Many users are frustrated by the lack of a purchasing cart, as well as the inability to give games to others. Regardless of the feature sequence or timeline, Epic Games continues to work on expanding the Epic Games Store.
