Discounts do vary and of course, the Epic Games Store doesn't have a shopping cart yet, so buying multiple games is a bit of a chore.
In addition to the price cuts, Epic Games also announced that its fortnightly free games will be made weekly for the duration of the sale. Note that this doesn't apply to purchases which aren't full games, such as DLC or in-game items. So if you want to pre-order Borderlands 3, for example, even though publisher 2K obviously hasn't discounted that title, you get 20% off courtesy of Epic. With the $10 discount on pre-orders, that means you can pick up a brand new, unreleased game for $16.99 - which is less than R250. However, it appears that some publishers/developers were not willing to participate in it and as such, both Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 and Oxygen Not Included have been removed from the Epic Games Store. The company behind Fortnite (and the widely used Unreal game design engine), announced that it will hold a store-wide sale on its platform, the Epic Games Store, from May 16 through June 13, 2019.
How do I get $10 off games in the Epic Games store?
The store smartly got ahead of Steam's Summer Sale-that sacred time of the year when gamers splurge on several $US5 ($7) or $US10 ($14) PC games they'd been waiting to play or seem kind of cool.
Of course, don't forget that you get £10 (or $10) off nearly any game you buy (with the aforementioned caveats).
Most notably for consumers, Epic has been giving away a different free game every two weeks to users since January.
The so-called Epic Mega Sale has just begun on Epic's online games store, and whatever your views on this sometimes controversial retail outlet, it can't be denied that this is indeed a pretty epic event in terms of the discounts available.
For all game purchased between May 2 and May 15, Epic will refund you the difference in price between what you paid and what you would have paid during the Epic Mega Sale - inclusive of the $10 off from Epic. This will be automatically calculated and displayed for you.
