The statement follows the recent announcement that studio will be appearing at the PC Gaming show at this year's E3, which will be hosted by the Epic Games Store.
During the sale period Epic will be expanding its "free game every two weeks" program by taking the cunning movie of making it a "free game every week" instead. Neither of the games are exclusive to the Epic Games Store. While the just-announced John Wick Hex is offering pre-orders for £4.39/€5.19/$7.99 (a slightly steeper discount in the United Kingdom than US), the excellent Hades is £13.94/€14.86/$6.99, which just doesn't add up. The way Epic frames the sale is a little misleading.
Gamers are encouraged to check back each week to see what new title will be on offer next. Not only that, but you don't have to do anything to get that benefit - the refund will come automatically via the same payment method you used sometime in the next seven to 12 days.
"If a developer or publisher chooses to not participate in our sales, we will honor that decision", an Epic Games spokesperson said to PCGamesN.
Yesterday, Epic Games launched the first big sale for the Epic Games Store.
Of course, don't forget that you get £10 (or $10) off nearly any game you buy (with the aforementioned caveats).
If you're kicking yourself because you just bought a game that's suddenly on sale, don't worry: Epic said it will apply Mega Sale discounts via refund to all full-price games purchased on its store between May 2 and the start of the sale on May 16.
Oh, and one more thing.
To get it, go to the Epic Games Store website and click the blue panel in the top-right corner that says "Get Epic Games".
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). "To all our players, thank you for your patience and understanding around this".
