Tim Sweeney does not intend to give Steam a break and tackles the strong point of the Valve platform, namely the sales. The Epic Games Store has just started its Mega Sale, and the offers are incredible. If the prices seem slightly higher than with its competitor, the store uses another mechanism to drastically lower the score of its customers. In fact, each player will have a € 10 voucher valid on any title displayed at € 14.99 or more, whether or not it is on sale. Better, if we buy eligible games, we will also be entitled to new vouchers of the same value. Clearly, this system ensures that all games sold have a minimum reduction of € 10, which is quite unstoppable.
And where it is even stronger is that these vouchers will be valid until November 1, 2020. Of course, in addition to this operation which demonstrates the financial serenity of Epic Games, several games are offered with a discount up to -75%. To ensure that players come en masse to the Epic Games Store and create an account, management has also put the package on the free games system, with high caliber titles offered at regular intervals. These are no longer announced in advance, as was the case with GTA V. As you can see, the Epic Games Store is advancing by force to catch up on Steam, and the arrival of competition in the PC digital distribution market will inevitably benefit players.
