The Epic Games Store Mega Sale – A Guide to the Best Games to Buy

Check out our picks for stuff you should pick up this weekend!

Prepare your bank accounts because the Epic Games Store is having a huge sale on a variety of popular and independent titles. Running from May 14 until June 11, the “Epic Mega Sale” features several dozen games ranging from recent successes like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to smaller, lesser-known games such as Into the Breach.

The catch with this sale is you’ll be given a $10 Epic Games Store coupon for any purchase of $14.99 and above. This means you can get quite a few games for under 50 to 75 percent of their original price. Just remember you can only spend the coupon on games that are also $14.99 or up, so don’t expect to nab any free titles.

When picking out the best deals we went under the assumption that you will have the initial $10 coupon you get for free during the event However, we’re also including games not eligible for the coupon deal — since there are some shockingly cheap titles still absolutely worth buying. Because of this, our lists will be broken up into those above and below the critical $14.99 price point. If you’re looking to pick up some new games, here are the best deals during the Epic Games Store’s Epic Mega Sale!
