Epic Games Store really wants you to start using it with MEGA sale discounts and a free GOTY

Since its inception, the Epic Games Store has been fighting an uphill battle against Steam, the dominant PC gaming marketplace. Once again, it is turning to big sale discounts and free game giveaways to lure people in.

Epic Games’ month-long MEGA Sale 2024 begins today, on May 16, and runs until June 13. In addition to putting several dozen games on sale, the publisher also appears to be giving away “mystery games” for free. The first free game is Dragon Age Inquisition, a critically acclaimed installment in a beloved franchise with a forthcoming new release later this year.

While the game usually goes for $40, the Game of the Year edition of Inquisition is free until 10am CT on May 23 and includes all three official add-on DLCs in Jaws of Hakkon, The Descent, and Trespasser, plus a plethora of other items and content.

The Epic Games Store has offered free game giveaways during sales and special events in the past, but they’ve also offered daily ones for smaller titles. The next “mystery game” will be revealed on May 23, when the Inquisition giveaway ends, but it seems like Epic is prioritizing more prestigious titles at a lower frequency this time around.

There are also a number of pretty generous discounts available already. EA Sports FC 24, which is still a whopping $70 on both Steam and the EA App, is only $13.99 currently through the Epic Games Store. A number of more recent releases that haven’t had major commercial success are heavily discounted too, like Skull and Bones, Suicide Squad, and Prince of Persia The Lost Crown.

Epic’s own critically acclaimed Alan Wake 2, which reportedly has not made back its development costs yet thanks in part to a lack of a Steam release, is also on sale.
