Two days ago, a Message of the Day (MOTD) about the Epic Game Store’s Mega Sale got out early in Fortnite. It looks like the sale has now gone live, and will remain until 13 June 2019. The store is promoting discounts of up to 75% for selected titles.
Epic Games also has another kind of discount going on for games priced US$14.99 (~RM62.57) or higher. The company has pledged to give an additional US$10 discount for said games. This will apply to even games that are already discounted as part of the Mega Sale. That said, this is not applicable to microtransactions, including DLCs and season passes.
The #EpicMegaSale is now live 🎉
Up to 75% off great games AND $10 off every game priced $14.99 and up — on us!

If you’ve bought or pre-ordered a game after 2 May, Epic Games will also be refunding the difference between what you paid and the sale price of the game. The refund will also take into account the US$10 discount for applicable games.
In addition to the price cuts, Epic Games also announced that its fortnightly free games will be made weekly for the duration of the sale. At the time of writing, the Epic Games Store lists Stories Untold as the current free game, until 30 May. At the same time, the next game in queue, Rime, will also be free from 23 May to 30 May.
Incidentally, Kotaku also reports that two games have been temporarily removed from the Epic Games Store by their publishers. Neither of the games are exclusive to the Epic Games Store. One of them also happens to still be in its pre-order phase, but its publisher has said that it will be back on the Epic Games Store soon, with no indication as to when that will be.
