New Years' Games Sale Ends Soon: Save On Control, Red Dead 2, And More
The encore sale is nearly over.
Although the hoildays are behind us, some of the sales that accompany them have stuck around. The Epic Games Store has an encore sale going on, with discounts on many of the games that were on sale during the holidays, like including Red Dead Redemption 2, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Control--the latter being one of GameSpot's best games of 2019. This encore sale ends January 7 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.
The best part about the encore sale is that if you still have a $10 coupon, you can use it on any game that is $14.99 or more. Every Epic Games Store user should still have one, as the holiday sale would grant you another every time you used it on an eligible game. However, unlike the holiday sale, you won't earn any additional coupons--it's one and done in the encore sale. That means you can still get Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for $39.79 or Red Dead Redemption 2 for $38. This brings a lot of these games to their best price yet.
If you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription, then you don't need to pay anything extra to be able to play a select few of these games. Game Pass's PC library currently includes The Outer Worlds, Metro Exodus, and Metro: Last Light Redux. And right now, you can subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $1 for your first three months.
During the holiday sale, the Epic Games Store offered a new free game every day. And with the new year, Epic isn't stopping there. It's currently giving away three great games for free: Darksiders: War-Mastered Edition, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition, and Steep.
