PC Building Simulator was first released in 2019 and allowed players to create gaming PCs using real-world parts from developers like AMD, Cooler Master, Corsair, MSI, EVGA, and Gigabyte. Offers can be accepted from your emails, and every build or repair will turn a profit. Players will gradually develop their business into a whole company.
The Epic Games Store is adding its own achievements starting next week. The first games to get the feature include Rocket League, Alan Wake Remastered, and Zombie Army 4. The achievements will be known as Epic achievements. These will replace the previous system but won’t overwrite what players have already accomplished.
Each achievement has its own XP rewards associated with it. Once a player earns 1000xp for one game, they will receive a platinum achievement. A new tab will be added to a game’s details where players can track and share their accomplishments with others. The details of these achievements will also be visible on the game’s store page.
