Whether you love or hate the Epic Games Store, it'll be pretty tough to pass up some of these deals -- especially since the latest Mega Sale is bringing back the Epic Coupon. The Epic Coupon, for those who don't know, is given to everyone who logs into the Epic Games Store and hits the "Claim" button on this page.

This coupon is good for $10 off any game (or add-on) priced $15 or higher. That's a nice freebie, but it gets better: as soon as successfully redeem the coupon, you'll get another, and then another. You can repeat this process as many times as you like; there's no upper limit. More importantly, you can use the coupon on games that are already discounted.

So, for example, if you want to grab Control -- which is ordinarily $60 -- you'd only be paying $20 in the end, due to both the Epic Coupon and its current 50 percent discount. Of course, your own funds and the number of games you have an interest in will restrict you somewhat.

You can examine the Mega Sale's deals yourself whenever you please, but we'll list off a couple more enticing ones here. For starters, Gearbox's latest chaos-infused shooter, Borderlands 3, is 50 percent off, bringing the price down to $30 (or $20 with an Epic Coupon).

The excellent city-building/strategy hybrid Anno 1800 can also be snagged for $30, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey will only run you $20 before coupon redemption. While it's not eligible for coupon savings, you might also consider snagging The Division 2, which is a whopping 67 percent off right now, bringing the total cost down to $9.89.

As we reported recently, Epic is also using the Sale festivities to give away free copies of Grand Theft Auto V's Premium Edition. If you haven't played the ridiculously-popular third-person shooter yet, now's a great time to give it a shot.

Eh, sorry. Still not installing that launcher on my rig. Hell, I don't even do steam hardware surveys because they want to know what software you got installed.

The launcher snobbery/loyalty amongst PC gamers is hilarious. It’s a programme that launches software made elsewhere, millions use most of them with no problems. You’d think this wouldn’t be a thing.

But no, “I will only click on “X” launcher, the others are not good enough for my machine.”

Its not so much a snobbery/loyalty but frustration on how many "shops" we have to install and the whole buying up games by Epic was quite a crappy move by them, I was quite hostile towards them when it first came out eventually I got over it 😅

I've been collecting free games from Epic. The biggest downloads I got for free so far are Assassin's Creed Syndicate and now, the ongoing GTA V.

As a gamer, one tends to gain if the game is sold cheaper. Epic launcher is just similar to Steam, the grandad of launchers itself, which I am also using. And both these need to further connect to Rockstar or UPlay anyway, after launching. It's sad that it has come to the stages of launchers instead of buying the CD or DVD and just install and play like those days, but it is what it is now.

Yes, the craziness of the ruckus for or against a launcher is becoming more childish and laughable.

Really happy to see that the coupons can be used on DLC this time around. Picked up Journey to a Savage Planet for $7 too!
