News - Epic Offers $10 Off All $15+ Games, Refunds Recent Purchases In New Sale
Epic Offers $10 Off All $15+ Games, Refunds Recent Purchases In New Sale

The Epic Games Store has been ramping up in recent months, grabbing PC exclusivity for major titles like Borderlands 3, acquiring Rocket League developer Psyonix, and taking a firm stance on its plans to acquire more exclusive titles unless competitor Valve increases revenue share for developers. And now the Epic Store is ready to start offering customers some serious discounts on the games it's curated, as it launched its first storewide sale today.

Dubbed the Epic Mega Sale, the store is offering markdowns up to 75% off on some PC games. In addition, $10 is slashed off the price of any game over $15, including already discounted games and pre-orders, at no cost to the publisher or developer. That encompasses upcoming games like Borderlands 3, one of its biggest exclusives, which you can now pre-order for $50, and the recently announced John Wick game, John Wick Hex, which you can pre-order for $8 instead of $20.

Just purchased something from Epic and wish you'd waited? If you bought a game between May 2 and May 15 in the Epic Store, you'll be refunded the difference between what you paid and the sale price. And if you've pre-ordered a game from the Epic Store that cost more than $15, you'll receive a $10 refund within the next couple of weeks. The only exceptions to the $10 off deal are DLC, game add-ons, season passes, and in-game purchases, such as V-bucks in Fortnite.

In addition to all the store-wide discounts, Epic announced its free biweekly game deal is expanding during the Mega Sale, which runs now through June 13. In that time period, a free game will be given away every week, starting with today's offering, genre-bending anthology Stories Untold.

Dates for Steam's 2019 Summer Sale leaked (once again) yesterday--it'll start June 25 and last two weeks--so Epic's Mega Sale seems strategically timed to precede that one. While Steam's sale will no doubt have the greater volume of games, Epic's deals (particularly the $10 off one) are nothing to sneeze at, and it's a good chance to grab cheaper pre-orders on upcoming games and some free PC titles. Either way, June is gearing up to be a great month for PC gamers on a budget.
