Whoa whoa what?! I’ve clearly been around for too long because I find this refund for a discount I missed on the @EpicGames store absolutely mind blowingly generous. This is incredible? pic.twitter.com/eHfcus5E0K— Joshua Boggs (@jboggsie) May 15, 2020
"You recently placed orders from the Epic Games Store," Epic's email to Boggs says. "The price of the game(s) you purchased were recently lowered, so we are issuing partial refunds for the difference(s)."
We’re not sure when the new feature might have rolled out, or why Epic hasn’t made more of a fanfare about it. That also means we don't know how recent a purchase has to be to count for the discount, or if there are any other restrictions in place.
Just yesterday the company explained other recent changes to the storefront in a blog post, including the January introduction of ‘self-service refunds’ for games bought within the last 14 days and played for less than two hours.
Other new details in the blog post include the first look at the store’s upcoming support for in-game mods and achievements, which should help bring the rest of its feature set in line with Steam’s.
