The deals are effectively larger than that. Every Epic Games account is receiving a 25 percent coupon that applies to any full-game purchases worth at least $15 after any other discounts, including the heftier ones mentioned above. You'll get a coupon after each transaction, too. The sale doesn't apply to add-ons, in-game content or non-game software.

The promo will dovetail with four weekly giveaways for "tentpole" games. You won't have to pay a thing to get at least something out of the Mega Sale, then, even if Epic is clearly hoping you'll buy something else while you're downloading your free titles.
