Here’s what you need to know about the 2023 Epic Games Store Black Friday sale, including when it kicks off and what to expect in terms of discounts on PC games.

This year has seen an unprecedented number of stellar game launches, and there’s more excitement on the horizon. We have the arrival of ‘Avatar Frontiers of Pandora’ in December, the nominations for the ‘Game Awards 2023 GOTY’ ready for December 7th, and the highly-anticipated trailer for GTA 6. These are just some bonus treats for gaming enthusiasts.

And let’s not forget the upcoming Black Friday discounts. With such a strong year for game releases, the ensuing sale is a perfect chance to snag some of the phenomenal titles you may have missed.

Epic Games Store Black Friday Sale 2023: Launch Date

The 2023 Black Friday Sale at Epic Games Store begins on November 21st. This has been made official through a newsletter from Epic Games, which outlines all their fourth-quarter sales except for the Christmas event. Take note that the sale will conclude on November 28th.

On top of big discounts, a report from mydealz suggests even greater savings with an enhanced Epic coupon. A 33% discount coupon, rather than the usual 25%, is expected this year and will apply to any purchase over €14.99. The site also notes that although coupons are limited to once per game, a new 33% coupon will be received after each purchase.

Nothing is set in stone regarding specific games or discounts, but there’s no doubt that a plethora of treasures awaits shoppers. Similarly, the PSN store Black Friday Sale 2023 has already started, and the Steam Black Autumn Sale 2023 is also around the corner.
