Paradox removes Vampire: The Masquerade 2 from Epic Store during sale

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

Initially, it all sounded pretty good! The game was available for pre-order via the Epic Games Store at full price, but the recent Mega Sale brought the game down to £40 nearly a year before the game will be coming out. At the same time, the next game in queue, Rime, will also be free from 23 May to 30 May. It makes sense that publishers wouldn't want their pre-orders in a sale. The game will return to the store soon! The Epic Games store home page, meanwhile, has the full rundown on all of the partners' sales.

What many assumed to be an error was later confirmed by Epic; not every publisher is required to participate in sales. Paradox Interactive has chosen to not participate in the Epic Mega Sale and the game has been temporarily removed from sale. If players 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". The refund will also take into account the US$10 discount for applicable games. There are still other peculiarities with the sale.

Paradox Interactive echoed Epic in its own separate statement, but did not say exactly why the game was removed, rather than simply left at regular price. John Wick Hex, when I checked yesterday, was being offered to us at around $4. The store is promoting discounts of up to 75% for selected titles.

Supergiant Games took a different approach to a similar issue with its early access game Hades, and ended up wading even deeper into the seas of complication as a result. Any purchases made while the game was discounted during the Epic Mega Sale will be honored and no Masquerade violations will be assessed.

Example: World War Z is listed for $19.99, meaning that's the final price, and you won't get another $10 off. Starting today, Stories Untold is the newest free game you can claim from the Epic Store, and while you'll still have two weeks to claim it as usual, another freebie will be available starting next Thursday, May 30. Folks can pick it up at www.PlayHades.com. The post also stated that "the game's retail price is now $24.99, up from $19.99 at launch, based on continued improvements and additions we've made so far in early access", and that "we think this new price point reflects the game's current value in early access".

After a bit of a storm in a teacup backlash, they dropped the pricing again, and it's now available on Epic's store for $9.99.
