Epic’s first big sale is having teething problems
Yesterday, the Epic Games Store launched its first ever major sale, complete some eye-opening price reductions that almost seemed too good to be true. Well, it turns out many were, as some of the games initially listed in the sale have been pulled from the store, while others have re-jigged their prices several times.
The first to pull a vanishing act was upcoming game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, which briefly appeared for a discounted price, but now displays a 404 error. Epic explained Paradox chose to remove the title at the last moment, as the publisher decided it no longer wished to participate in the sale.
“If a developer or publisher chooses to not participate in our sales, we will honor that decision,” Epic told Kotaku via email. “Paradox Interactive has chosen to not participate in the Epic Mega Sale and the game has been temporarily removed from sale. 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.”
