Video games are absolutely fantastic, but do you know what’s best? That’s right, pay almost nothing. For those who don’t know, Epic Games is a US-based interactive entertainment company that provides 3D engine technology, has developed Unreal Engine, and has a digital storefront better known as the Epic Games Store.
Epic Games will be participating in Black Friday again this year, so we’re going to be sifting through the best AAA and indie game deals Epic has to offer, so you don’t miss a thing.
What are the best Epic Games Store deals this Black Friday?
It seems to be the most impressive Black Friday sales event ever. Deals are already starting to fly from various retailers, although Epic Games has yet to begin. We believe there will be huge discounts on the majority of titles, with AAA games leading the way in savings.
Older games that are still played to death and very popular will almost certainly be on offerings, along with any lesser-known indie titles.
How long will the Epic Games Store Black Friday deals last?
The offers will start in the middle of Black Friday (November 26, 2021) and could last until early December. We’re not sure at this point, but that’s what EGS normally does at this time of year.
What Epic Games Store Black Friday deals have we seen in previous years?
When last year’s Black Friday hit EGS, we saw up to 75% off loads of game titles.
The best deal we saw last year was on Red Dead Redemption 2, a standout title that takes you to the ruthless heart of America, with stunning graphics and a jaw-dropping storyline. Epic Games Store had a deal on RDR2 offering 33% off last year, not bad.
We’ve seen Outer Worlds and Borderlands 3 get 25% and 33% off, respectively, showing that even popular games will see their prices drop.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Assassins Creed Syndicate, Hitman, Killing Floor 2, Borderlands: The Handsome Collections and many more got a 75% discount last year and we expect more of the same this time around- this.
