The Epic Games Store is offsetting its yearly mega sale once more. The event will run for four weeks, from May 19 through June 16th. Epics'' month-long sale has impacted more games than ever. This year, over 1600 games and add-ons like DLC are on sale for up to 75% off.
Tiny Tinas Wonderland and Sifu are discounting for 20% off in Final Fantasy VII Remake Integrade. Far Cry 6, the latest of the Far Cry series, is half off a 50% discount.
The Epic Games Store was first established in 2018 because of aggressively seeking exclusive publishing agreements on certain games. At the time, the store made a 6 month exclusive on the schlooter at the start.
It''s now available for free.
Borderlands 3 is the first free game of the Mega Sale. It will be available for free until May 26, when another high-profile game will be introduced as a freebie. Every Thursday will see another new game giveaway for the duration of the sale.
The biggest advantage of the sale is the return of the Epic Coupon. In previous years Epic has given away a coupon for $10 off any game over $14.99 in price, essentially decreasing the price of the cheapest possible purchases to a fiver.
This year, though, the coupon is working a bit differently. Instead of a $10 discount on a purchase, its a 25% discount. Which isn''t that great at the $14.99 price range, but works out to a bigger discount for the newer, pricier games. A game at $49.99 now receives $12.50 off, for example.
Everyone loves a sale. A month-long sale is a great way to enrage those of us that are under little control.
