This year Epic Games has taken the time to publish a brief article detailing what Black Friday means for gaming and what to expect from the sale coming to the Epic Games Store. This includes information on when Epic Games' Black Friday event is, how long it will run and even marketplaces where PC players can find discounts on gear to enhance their gaming experience.
The Epic Games Store has began to challenge Steam, the marketplace's primary competitor, by offering free games and holding similar sales. Steam's equivalent of the Epic Games Store's Black Friday event is the Steam Autumn Sale.
Epic's answer to the Autumn Sale has now kicked off. Check the end of this story for some highlights from the Epic Games Black Friday Sale.
