Developer Steelstar posted about some upcoming feats we are getting with Update 29

In the first thread

Level 29:
At level 29, you get your third Epic Destiny feat. Like the one you get at level 28, you can pick from any of the previous Epic Destiny feats you qualify for, as well as from a list of new options only available at level 29.
See this thread for details on new Epic Destiny feats!

Level 30:
At level 30, you get a standard feat slot, per the normal feat progression.
You also get your choice of one Legendary Feat. These powerful feats have a variety of effects and a Planar theme.
See this thread for details on Legendary feats!

Other Feats & Changes:
In addition to the level cap increase and its related feats, some new general feats are being added into lower Epic levels to provide additional choices.
See this thread for details on those!

In addition, starting with U29, every Epic Level will grant you the following (similar to the Melee and Ranged power you currently get):

+6 Universal Spell Power
1% discount to the SP cost of your spells

And each Epic Level you have will grant the following to your Hirelings, Pets, and Summoned Creatures:

+5 Melee & Ranged Power
+10 Universal Spell Power
+5 PRR
+5 MRR

He then layed out some other feats in another thread
