When the Epic Games Store announced its first major sale, it felt unreal. Several titles were discounted, but Epic was also providing $10 off on games that were above $14.99. For games like Metro Exodus, Hades, Satisfactory, and even Borderlands 3, it seemed amazing.

The problems started almost immediately. Paradox Interactive pulled Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 from sale, with an Epic Games representative telling Kotaku that it chose not to participate. “If a developer or publisher chooses to not participate in our sales, we will honor that decision,” the Epic rep said. “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 honor that price.”

Then there’s Hades, which was discounted and then increased and has since returned to its original price of $19.99. You can pick it up for $10, thanks to the Epic Games Store discount, but it will go up to $24.99 on June 14th when the sale ends. Other titles like Oxygen Not Included from Klei Entertainment were pulled without any explanation.

However, Gearbox’s Borderlands 3, perhaps the biggest reason to go through the Epic Games Store on PC, has also been hit. At first, pricing for the game’s various editions was removed and replaced with a “Coming Soon” tag (as seen by ResetEra’s LewieP). The game has  sincebeen completely removed from the site, likely to re-price it accordingly. All in all, what was supposed to be the first major sale on the Epic Games Store has turned into a huge mess. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days.
