Epic Games Store is doing everything they can to compete with Steam…
Connect and Save. That’s the name of the new Epic Games Store promotion running from October 15th to November 14th. In the company’s mailing list solution, we can, among other things, find out about promotions (which is what every other store, including retail ones, do). However, you need to have an active Epic Games account and enter the email address you use.
If you’ve already received notifications about the sales, you should have received a discount coupon on Friday or Saturday, which will give you a ten dollar discount on your next Epic Games Store purchase. Of course, it’s essential to use the coupon in time, as it will expire at the end of the Connect and Save event (11:59 PM Pacific on November 15th)… so you’ll need to invest in something on the Steam rival until then.
On the Q&A page, you can also see that the game you buy must cost at least fifteen dollars. The coupon cannot be used for pre-orders, DLC, virtual currency or microtransactions. If you request a refund, the coupon’s value will not be transferred… and taxes and other costs are not included in the minimum purchase value. After November 16th, the same will be true: even if the game is refunded at that time, you won’t receive the coupon’s value.
And speaking of the Epic Games Store, here’s what they currently have as free games. Right now, Paladins Epic Pack and Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without A Pulse can be added to your account for free until Thursday, and Among the Sleep – Enhanced Edition will follow for the following week.
It’s a trick Epic Games Store is trying to get us to spend… but if you keep adding the free games to your account (without launching them once), you’ll only be playing with their nerves. There’s also a Halloween sale happening now.
