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

Share

Seeing as it's an EGS exclusive, you can presently only pre-order Bloodlines 2 through third-party stores. 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. It appears Paradox were unhappy with the £10 discount, even though they would still get the full price for the game, Epic were going to fund the discount themselves.

Most notably for consumers, Epic has been giving away a different free game every two weeks to users since January.

Speaking with Kotaku, a Paradox representative said, "We are in discussion with Epic regarding the temporary removal of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 from the Epic Game Store".

Klei Entertainement's early access game Oxygen Not Included has also curiously disappeared from Epic's Store. 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. It seems that one particular game was not supposed to be included in the pre-order deals, the upcoming and long-awaited Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2, being developed by Hardsuit Labs and published by Paradox Interactive. According to Kotaku, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 disappeared from the storefront following the start of the sale, and its Epic Store page is now displaying a 404 error.

The Epic Games Store has caused controversy among gamers since it emerged to challenge Steam's hegemony. Are you looking forward to the game?

Did you have the chance to pick up the game on the Epic Games Store? The game will return to the store soon! The game's base price, however, was listed at $24.99, up from its original listing of $19.99.

But as with all things, the devil is in the details-things like regional pricing, percentages, arbitrary cutoffs, and developer opt-outs-and in this case it looks very much like Epic failed to take all of that in before it flipped the switch. You will receive your $10 refund automatically to the payment method you used in the next 7-12 days. But the Epic Store sale doesn't actually hurt developers' bottom lines at all, and they'll get to keep 88% of revenues even with the $10 discount. With the $10 discount on pre-orders, that means you can pick up a brand new, unreleased game for $16.99 - which is less than R250.
