Epic Mega Sale now live on the Epic Games Store

Epic Mega Sale now live on the Epic Games Store

Not only that, but Ubisoft's games are nowhere to be found (this is mainly due to some issue with the interaction between the Epic Games Store and Uplay, however it's worth pointing out that the games are no longer available on Epic's store). The store's first Epic Mega Sale is quite attractive and discounts key games by up to 75% off while also knocking off a clean $10 from any game over $15.

Of course, don't forget that you get £10 (or $10) off nearly any game you buy (with the aforementioned caveats). Originally listed at a sale price of $6.99, the developer quietly raised the price of the game to $24.99 and altered the sale price to be $14.99. John Wick Hex lead dev Mike Bithell has stated on Twitter that "we get paid in full. this is Epic paying towards your bar tab, not the drinks being cheaper".

Sale prices are retroactive too. Developers No Code's upcoming followup, the space-disaster AI thriller Observation, isn't out until May 21st but pre-orders are down from £20 to a surprising £7.99/€8.89/$12.49 in this sale. It would have been nice if Epic allowed companies to opt out of the sale, though. Typically devs and publishers take a potential hit because they're betting on increased sales volume by lowering prices. They will even bring Rocket League to the store as an exclusive game in the near future.

We should also point out that the $10 discount only applies to games themselves, not add-ons.

The sale runs from now until June 13, and has interesting timing in terms of stealing thunder from Steam's summer sale, which we've just heard is rumored to start on June 25.

Supergiant has dropped the price of Hades back to its launch price of $19.99, meaning you can pick it up on Epic's store for $9.99 (£5.49).

You don't have to do anything. However, it's no longer offering a 25 percent discount on top of Epic's discount, meaning that Hades is now priced at $9.99.

The sale ends June 13, 2019. That said, this is not applicable to microtransactions, including DLCs and season passes. Some publishers also might be wary of effectively devaluing a new release by offering such a large price reduction so soon after launch.

Epic Games accidentally leaked their Mega Sale through an announcement earlier in the week.

No, you don't have to!

If you live in one of over 200 countries and territories with regional pricing, you will receive the local-currency equivalent of $10 off during checkout for eligible purchases (the local-currency equivalent of the $14.99 minimum game price).
