The Epic Games Store holds first Epic Mega Sale

Fortnite Loading Screen

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. Klei's Oxygen Not Included, for instance, normally goes for $25 and was discounted by 25 percent for the sale, taking it to $18.74.

What if I bought a game just before the Epic Mega Sale? We fully compensate the discount to the publisher, they do not lose money. 4. In other words, the current version of the store may not yet allow Epic to exclude games from similar promotions.

"If a developer or publisher chooses to not participate in our sales, we will honor that decision", an Epic representative told Kotaku. Paradox Interactive has chosen to not participate in the Epic Mega Sale and the game has been temporarily removed from sale. "Any purchases made while the game was discounted during the Epic Mega Sale will be honored and no Masquerade violations will be assessed". You can head over to the Epic Games Store to check out all the titles available during the Epic Mega Sale. We reached out to Paradox Interactive and will update the article as more information becomes available. The game will return to the store soon! In addition, Epic will be honouring the discount for anyone who pre-ordered the game before it was removed from the sale. The company has pledged to give an additional US$10 discount for said games. In Paradox's case, it's doubly dicey, seeing as Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 isn't out yet. Developers No Code's upcoming followup, the space-disaster AI thriller Observation, isn't out until May 21st but pre-orders are down from £20 to a surprising £7.99/€8.89/$12.49 in this sale.

OnePlus 7 Pro arrives at Reliance Digital & My Jio Stores
Only the OnePlus 7 Pro in its 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB variants in the Mirror Grey trim would be available for sale today. For selfies, OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a 16-megapixel pop-up camera with Sony IMX471 sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and EIS.

Update: The price on Hades (and possibly other games) has been straightened out - it was previously too high in the United Kingdom and European Union, but is now £5.49/€6.61/$6.99.

"We had meant to raise the retail price of the game soon, but made the decision rashly as part of the sale", they said later on Discord again. "To all our players, thank you for your patience and understanding around this".

Ashen - 56% off Another Epic exclusive, this action RPG is a smart fresh twist on the typical Dark Souls formula, and with this discount, it's barely more than a tenner to take on the challenge. After all, it took Valve ages to get Steam sales right, and even then, Steam still regularly goes down at the outset of big seasonal dealstravaganzas. But the Epic Store sale doesn't actually hurt developers' bottom lines at all, and they'll get to keep 88% of revenues even with the $10 discount.
