Epic Store tried to force sale onto devs, and it didn't work

Epic Store tried to force sale onto devs, and it didn't work

Apparently, the game will be returning to the store once the sale is over, and those who paid the discounted price for the game will get the game at that price which is nice, however, this didn't really bode well for the start of the storefront's debut sale.

Epic Games is hosting their first ever sale with massive discounts available on all titles including pre-orders. Except now, Borderlands 3 is marked as "coming soon" and can't be pre-ordered on the store, and as for Bloodlines 2, that game has been entirely removed, missing from Epic's retail outlet altogether.

Epic, however, leaning on the billions in revenue derived from mobile, console and computer game "Fortnite", has been establishing its own Games Store with preferential rates for developers and publishers, and giveaways of high profile games every two weeks, as well as exclusivity deals. An Epic representative told Kotaku that Vampire: The Masquerade publisher Paradox chose at the last second-or after the last second, technically-to not participate in the sale. This will apply to even games that are already discounted as part of the Mega Sale.

"We are in discussion with Epic regarding the temporary removal of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 from the Epic Game Store", read the statement. For more information on the Epic Games Store, and its Mega Sale, head to its website. Epic are obviously trying to get customers in the door today, and putting some huge discounts (close to 75% in some cases) on just-announced or just-released games. In the USA, it went on sale at $6.99, only for that discounted price to be revised up to $14.99, against an RRP of $24.99.

The Overwatch Anniversary event will kick off May 21 and run through June 10. "Games bought during their Mega Sale will be honoured at that price". Some of the store's biggest exclusive games have been pulled including Borderlands 3 and The Division 2. A pretty signifcant discount though is the promise of £10 any game priced at £13.99 or more. Given what the company is offering, consider me tempted.

Meanwhile, the cost of Hades - Battle Out of Hell seemed to increase, but Supergiant Games reportedly said that was an error. - Let us know in the comments! This will be automatically calculated and displayed for you.

Six new legendary skins and three new epic skins are being added to the game. That discount stacks on top of sales for individual games.
