Introduced on February 14, 2019 and expanded on June 16, 2020, the feature enables users to sign-in to their Epic Games Launcher even if they are not connected to the internet. This feature needs to be first enabled through the settings menu of the launcher for which a normal sign-in is required. After the feature is enabled by the user and the launcher is run without an internet connection, the user will be prompted to retry connection, skip sign-in or to continue in offline mode. The user can enter their Epic Username to go into offline mode. Using this feature, the user can play any offline only game which is installed on their machine. This feature does not work on games such as GTA 5 that require a constant internet connection or proof of ownership.[dubious – discuss]
Introduced on July 25, 2019, the feature allows for uploading of locally stored save files and synchronization with the Epic Games servers for cloud storage. Automatic save files uploading is enabled by default in the supported games.
