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.

Meh. TLDR:


A sale lasting almost a month with 4 or so free games is a bit telling on how well Epic is doing. I'd care less about the various problems of the Epic half assed store if there was price competition and exclusives that lasted no more than 6 months and few if any complaints about their security controls protecting your account and card info. I mean some of their exclusives make no sense to buy there, namely the ubisoft ones.


Of the two Epic only games I'm interested in, the prices are ok. Satisfactory is only $10 off and that really just covers the extra costs of using a prepaid visa card with admin fee. I suppose I could risk paypal. I sure as hell don't trust Epic's Store with my card for security reasons. I'm also only really considering that game because I had 50+ hours of time in the alpha test over 4 months.

Genesis Alpha One seems like a great deal at $9.89. Though that is a hefty discount after 4 or so months. Glad I didn't buy into that one. Gotta get more people buying I guess. That is single player only and from let's play/streaming impressions it still needs some work. I'd much rather buy it DRM free on GOG than even steam. Steam would only be worth it if it has workshop/mod support. Epic? Hah. Only if truly desperate to play it and the 66% discount.

The new Subnautica stand alone game in EA is 9.99 which was the standard sale price for the orignal game for years during steam sales. No real benefit there other than you don't have to wait another 5 weeks for Steam's summer sale.


Also, I guess Rime is a good game but it never really interested me. I've also had the ps4 copy for free since last year via PS Plus and free on GOG for 6 months? I honestly forget when I got it for free there. But yay, more free games I likely won't play.

I wonder what has happened to Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. I thought they were due to release in early winter this year.
