At the moment, not only is GTA 5 free in the Epic Games Store, but a new Epic Mega Sale has started: until June 12, 2020 many games are reduced in price.
We took a closer look at the sale and tell you which of the highlights you shouldn't miss and also make a comparison with the prices in other stores.
As with the last sale, not only are many titles reduced, you also get a voucher worth ten euros, which you can use with every purchase over 14.99 euros.
With Anno 1800, the popular body series says goodbye to the SciFi setting and sends you back to the past. Here you build your own little empire and above all you have to pay attention to smoothly functioning production chains and the needs of your subjects.
Anno 1800 – test video: is it enough for the best Anno ever?
In the test, we were particularly impressed by the great attention to detail, the lively game world and the great freedom that we have in our set-up. With 89 points, it not only received our Gold Award, but also one for presentation and scope.
The third part of the main Borderlands series continues the story of part 2 and sends you back to Pandora, where a mad bandit cult rises, led by Troy and Tyreen Calypso. A good reason to start hunting for millions of weapons again.
Borderlands 3 – test video: bombastic triumph with only one disappointment
We rated Borderlands 3 in the GameStar test with 88 points. Especially things like the fast and action-packed fights as well as the large variety of weapons for which the series is so famous convinced us together with the varied classes and the funny stories.
Control follows Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break. In the third-person shooter from Remedy Entertainment, you shoot your way through bizarre surroundings and gradually unlock o ther areas in "The Oldest House" like Metroidvania.
Control – Test-Video: Insanity alone is not enough
This is fun, but it also has its downsides, as we found in the test, in which we rate Control with 79 points.
So puzzles are not very intuitive, there is only one level of difficulty and the very similar missions eventually become monotonous. Nevertheless, the title is quite fun thanks to its surreal story and interesting skills and weapon types.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally sending you to the Wild West on PC too. Here you will experience the story of Outlaws Arthur Morgan, who along with the Van der Linde gang is fleeing the law after a failed robbery.
Red Dead Redemption 2 – test video for the PC version
A must-have: In the GameStar test, the Western epic received a total of 92 points, which won the Platinum Award. We had to look for problems with the magnifying glass, but found that the shootings were too easy thanks to mouse control and that we hardly made any real decisions.
Satisfactory is often referred to as a 3D factor. As in the well-known indie title, you are building a completely autonomous mega-factory on an alien planet. However, your clients will not tell you exactly what the purpose is.

Price comparison at a glance
You can also buy some of the games from the Epic Sale from other providers. There are reasons to do so: For example, the DRM freedom with GOG or the larger number of features with Steam. We looked at the prices of the main titles at other stores:
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey

On the other hand, if you have a very limited budget, you may be interested in a number of free offers on Steam. Here too we have selected the most interesting ones for you.
