It was a dilemma that was ever present for people buying games, which is what if the game that you finally bought goes on sale soon after. It seems like Epic Games Store is going out of its way to offer people a refund if they bought a game which went for a sale soon after. This is definitely a step forward in terms of making pushing the promotion of this platform. In fact, this is something no other game video game digital distribution service has introduced.
This was first noticed by Joshua Boggs, the director at Studio MayDay, who tweeted about this. He share an email from Epic Games Store which shows that he has received a partial refund. The email reads, “You recently placed orders from the Epic Games Store. The price of the game(s) you purchased were recently lowered, so we are issue partial refunds for the difference(s).”
This means that players will get the difference of what they would have saved had they bought the game during the sale. This along with the announcement that Epic Games will not charge developers royalty until their games hit $1 million in revenue is a step forward. Epic Game is definitely putting up a strong front in its competition with Steam to becomes the prefered platform on PC.
Whoa whoa what?! I’ve clearly been around for too long because I find this refund for a discount I missed on the @EpicGames store absolutely mind blowingly generous. This is incredible? pic.twitter.com/eHfcus5E0K
