Epic Mega Sale now live on the Epic Games Store By Ethan Chrisp

While the just-announced John Wick Hex is offering pre-orders for £4.39/€5.19/$7.99 (a slightly steeper discount in the United Kingdom than US), the excellent Hades is £13.94/€14.86/$6.99, which just doesn't add up. Seeing as it's an EGS exclusive, you can presently only pre-order Bloodlines 2 through third-party stores. Originally listed at a sale price of $6.99, the developer quietly raised the price of the game to $24.99 and altered the sale price to be $14.99. Klei Entertainment's Oxygen Not Included, which was also available for pre-order, vanished as well.

It's not an overt money thing here, because according to John Wick Hex developer Mike Bithell, Epic is picking up the difference and paying developers and publishers that wayward $10.

"Hey again everyone. Earlier today, Hades became available at a significant discount as part of the Epic Mega Sale on the Epic Games store". According to Kotaku, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 disappeared from the storefront following the start of the sale, and its Epic Store page is now displaying a 404 error.

Third fatal Tesla Autopilot crash renews questions about system
In a statement, a Tesla spokesperson said that the company provided NTSB with the vehicle log data shortly after the crash. Data from the damaged Tesla shows that the car's autopilot system had been engaged 10 seconds prior to the collision.

Epic Games accidentally leaked their Mega Sale through an announcement earlier in the week.

In this case, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 was quickly removed from the store after the sale began. If you've purchased Vampire: "The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 during the period when the discount did apply at the time of check out, Epic will honour that price". It also included Paradox's Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2.

Though Galyonkin says the game will return, it's not clear if this will be cleared up before the sale is over. During the sale, all games priced $14.99 and above are an additional $10 off, courtesy of Epic. (You can get indie horror game Stories Untold right now).

Juventus announce Massimiliano Allegri will leave Serie A club this summer
He leaves Juventus after five consecutive league titles and two appearances in the Champions League final, in 2015 and 2017. I'm not going to move, I'm satisfied here, I'm not going anywhere. "That is how I feel today, but football changes a lot".

"We had meant to raise the retail price of the game soon, but made the decision rashly as part of the sale", they said later on Discord again. Users will also be able to get a free game every week. That was our mistake, and we sincerely apologize.

The Mega Sale pre-empts the annual Summer sale from the largest digital sales platform for PC games, Steam, which is widely considered a serious shopping event for gamers. This will be automatically calculated and displayed for you. After all, it took Valve ages to get Steam sales right, and even then, Steam still regularly goes down at the outset of big seasonal dealstravaganzas.
