Epic reportedly offering partial refunds if you buy a game before it goes on sale
Indie dev says he was reimbursed after recent purchase was discounted
Epic is reportedly offering partial refunds if you buy an Epic Games Store title which goes on sale shortly afterwards.
That’s according to Joshua Boggs, founder of New Zealand based indie game developer Studio Mayday, who claims to have been reimbursed some of the money he spent on games that were later discounted.
“You recently placed orders from the Epic Game Store,” reads the message he received from the Epic Games Store. “The price of the game(s) you purchased were recently lowered, so we are issuing partial refunds for the difference(s).”
Epic hasn’t detailed how recently you need to have purchased a game to be eligible for a partial refund, but VGC has asked it for more information.
The Epic Games Store recently launched its ‘Mega Sale’ featuring discounts of up to 75% off selected titles until June 11, including Control for £23.99, Borderlands 3 for £24.99 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for £16.49.
It’s also offering registered users a free $10/£10 coupon. Every time you use a $10/£10 coupon on an eligible game or add-on priced $14.99/£13.99 or above during the ‘Mega Sale’ you’ll receive an additional $10 coupon.
It’s giving away the PC version of GTA V free of charge until May 21 too. The offer launched on Thursday and quickly crashed the Epic Games Store.
