As is the tradition, almost every game on the platform will be available for cheap. Adding games to your wishlist and looking out for deals on publisher bundles is a great way to save money. We will be updating this section with the offers as soon as the sale goes live. But until then, you can check out the entire Saints Row franchise that is currently selling at up to 87 percent discount.
Windows PC (Epic Games Store)
Although there is no official announcement, the Epic Games Black Friday sale is expected to start early next week, going by last year’s schedule. The sale usually gives users a free $10 coupon at the start, that can be used to avail additional discounts on games.
