Epic Mega Sale

The Epic Games Store fulfils recent rumors with the announcement of an Epic Mega Sale, a bit of a play on the company's original name, Epic MegaGames. They are promising bargains up to 75% off and an additional $10.00 USD discount on every game priced above $14.99. They are also doubling down on their free game every two weeks (or fortnite, as it were), to a free game every week during the sale, starting with the upcoming release of Stories Untold. This post has a FAQ to address any lingering questions this raises, saying they are actually offering refunds to match their sale prices for all games purchased between May 2nd and yesterday. Here's more:
How do I get $10 off games in the Epic Games store?
You don’t have to do anything. During the sale, all games priced $14.99 and above are an additional $10 off, courtesy of Epic.

Do I get $10 off games that are already on sale?
Yes! As long as the sale price is $14.99 and above.

How long does the Epic Mega Sale last?
The sale ends June 13, 2019.

Will I get $10 off DLC, game add-ons, season passes, or in-game purchases, including V-bucks in Fortnite?
No, the promotional offer only applies to qualifying game purchases from the Epic Games store. It does not apply to any nongame purchases such as add-ons (like DLC or season passes) or in-game purchases (such as in-game currency, like V-bucks in Fortnite, or upgrades like Save The World mode.)

I pre-purchased a game before the start of the Epic Mega Sale and that game hasn’t launched yet. Should I cancel my pre-purchase and then buy it again to take advantage of the $10 discount?
No, you don’t have to! Every player who pre-purchased an unreleased game in the Epic Games store prior to May 16th, 2019 for $14.99 and above will receive a $10 refund! You will receive your $10 refund automatically to the payment method you used in the next 7-12 days.

What if I bought a game just before the Epic Mega Sale?
For all game purchases between May 2nd, 2019 and May 15th, 2019 we 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). You will receive your refund automatically to the payment method you used in the next 7-12 days.

Verno, Rage 2 how are you liking that game? Its an OK game and all, but it really feels lacking in areas and Coop would have benefited this game a lot.

It has a really fun first few hours but then you're bored to tears. The game never really evolves, the powers are just OK and the shotgun is really the standout part of the game. I'm running out of steam with it and will probably stop playing soon. I can see why it got the scores it did. I had a gift card to burn so no regrets but I wouldn't suggest others pay full price for it, definitely a $30-40 title.

If you have even a passing interest in factory games, along with a LOT of exploration, pick up Satisfactory. It’s indescribably cool.

As for “oh but Epic”, EGS is pretty much just a Satisfactory launcher for me. It’s innocuous and does what I need for the game. The “no multiple storefronts” fight was lost long ago.

I'm confused. Blue's lead says they are promising sales up to 75% off and at least $10 on games priced over $14.99. So Epic themselves are applying a $10 discount to all games above a certain price on their own dime, and then publishers can offer their own sales as well. So if a game was $80, the publisher offers a 50% discount dropping it to $40, then Epic applies their $10 discount, the $80 game is now $30.

I don't know, I haven't tried to check out any titles (thru to cart). The $10 discount won't apply to a lot of games though and the publishers aren't exactly going nuts to discount recent AAA releases. Metro: Exodus was the only notable one I saw personally. I guess Borderlands 3 preorder is good? I don't know, I try not to preorder games anymore. If you find others please post them. Their store is fucking awful to browse by the way, holy shit.

This is why I have exclusively excluded myself from buying anything from that shit show of a store front.

Browsing this store is still ludicrously clunky. No categories, no tags, just a bunch of thumbnails which tell you nothing about what kind of games you're looking at.

I'm actually referencing my *Steam wishlist* to search for titles on the EGS. No matches/discounts found so far.

Someone else on reddit parsed their terrible storefront for the "deals", the only thing approaching interesting was Metro: Exodus for $27.99. Much ado about nothing. So much for that competition being great for the consumer.

Darksiders 3 for $49.99 uh lol? THQ Nordic has a high opinion of themselves.

This is actually pretty generous of Epic. Steam did something similar during their Chinese New Year sale event in February, offering $5 discount on certain games on their own dime.

Still not gonna buy anything cuz i'm a hater (and haters gonna hate) but gotta hand it to Epic for taking a bit of the wind out of the Steam Summer Sale... but only a bit. I love that summer sale. Hope they have clicker games again this year.

Sounds to me like a different color store front does not matter to you.
My local Bodega was painted Egg Shell, when they repainted it 7 years ago they changed the color to Off White and I quit going there for several days. And now just recently they changed the exterior color to Ivory. eff those guys

LOL was thinking the same thing. And when I click on the game, there are hardly any details.

Site is shit for sure and the games I searched for that I wanted aren't even in the store.

*yawn* is right.

Absolutely sicking to see EPIC lower prices like this, giving the finger to anyone who bought something last week. Anyone who buys a game after June, 13th has to pay extra now? WTF! Let me guess no refunds? They need to be sued out of business for being so greedy and anti-consumer.
