Well, we all knew that this was coming. Yes, the Christmas period always manages to offer us as many opportunities as possible to drain our bank balance, but for PC gamers, this is either going to be great or awful.

Is it time to grab a last-minute gaming bargain? – Let’s take a look!

Epic Games Store Sale

Now, we know that a lot of you have a pathological hatred of the Epic Games Store platform. Putting this aside, however, (and despite their more limited library) Epic Games arguably has the far more attractive sale on at the moment.

Firstly, following up on their ‘free game’ promotions, they’ll be offering a new game for free every day. Secondly, and this is a pretty sweet deal that clinges a lot of the comparative deals, they’re also offering $10 off on purchases.

So, what picks does the Epic Games Store have? Well, not taking the $10 discount into the mix, some of the highlights include:

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – £45.64
  • Ghostbusters Remastered – £11.99
  • The Outer Worlds – £37.49

What Do We Think?

Comparative? We think the Epic Games Store just about edges it as offering the better sale deals of the two. Yes, their library isn’t as wide and varied, but as the list above shows, they do (still) have a lot of highly-desirable exclusives.

Any way you look at it though, sales like this are only a win-win for us humble gamers. Just try not to spend too much, alright?
