Epic Mega Sale now live on the Epic Games Store

Epic Mega Sale now live on the Epic Games Store

Here's a short list of some noteworthy deals on some good games and notable unreleased ones. Epic's director of publishing, Sergey Galyonkin, has stated on Twitter that if you've bought or pre-ordered anything on the Epic Games Store in the past two weeks, you'll get the price difference refunded. It also included Paradox's Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2.

While it is not now Summer here in Australia, most online sales will still call it a Summer sale on the Australian store pages. It seems to suggest that there may have been some concern from the studio's player fanbase that they might be considering such a move, as suggested by Reddit user Slawrfp, possibly precipitated by their appearance at the Epic Games Store-hosted show. The Epic Games store home page, meanwhile, has the full rundown on all of the partners' sales. However, and contrary to the aforementioned games, Ubisoft's titles were removed before the launch of the Epic Mega Sale.

The best thing about the Epic Mega Sale is how it impacts developers. There are still other peculiarities with the sale. That discount stacks on top of sales for individual games. John Wick Hex, when I checked yesterday, was being offered to us at around $4. Naturally, pricing stuff up to offer it on discount (as our own Takealot is wont to do) tends to rankle.

For example, Metro Exodus, a game I really enjoyed, is on sale for $38.74, $10 off. He also clarifies on what he meant by "gray area", saying that the games on the store are not licensed by China's gaming regulator for sale in the country. The company has pledged to give an additional US$10 discount for said games.

Epic have just announced the Epic Mega Sale is now on in the Epic Games Store.

The retail price of Hades is now back to $19.99, our original launch price. Notably, many games are up to 75% off, and every game $14.99 or more is $10 off.

Yes! As long as the sale price is $14.99 and above. "...we didn't provide advance notice to our customers, despite previously stating we would do so". (You'll also need it to download and play the games). This will apply to even games that are already discounted as part of the Mega Sale.

KitGuru Says: This is a tricky one because on the one hand, Epic Games limited consumer choice with its exclusive games strategy. I'd guess thatit has to do with devaluing games (or the perception of them being devalued) before they're out.
