The Epic Games Store Holiday sale is live, and through Jan. 10, you can save 33% on thousands of titles in the Epic Games catalog. While Epic typically offers a single-use coupon during its holiday sales, this year, it’s offering unlimited 33% coupons that can be applied to purchases of $14.99 or more. The coupon can be applied to multiple items in a single transaction and will be returned to your account following checkout.

The 33% coupon can be used on anything currently available on the Epic Games Store, including new releases and games that are already discounted. However, purchases containing in-game currency, DLC, or pre-orders aren’t eligible.

While the Epic Games Store is home to thousands of games, we’ve highlighted a handful of new releases and personal favorites for you to check out. But, if you’re going to pick up just one game, we’d recommend Alan Wake 2, which comes bundled with a voucher for a free copy of Alan Wake Remastered if you purchase a copy during the Epic Holiday Sale.

While the unlimited 33% discount is definitely the highlight of the Epic Game Store Holiday Sale, there are some other awesome benefits, too. For instance, any purchases you make through Jan. 10 will get 10% of the total applied to your account as Epic Rewards Points, which can be applied as a discount on future purchases.

Epic is also giving away 17 free games through Dec. 31. Each title will only be free for 24 hours, after which time it will return to its original price. Just bookmark Epic’s free games page and check back each day to see which title you can make a permanent part of your backlog. Epic ran a similar promotion last year and gave away some excellent games like Them’s Fightin’ Herds, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Death Stranding, Metro: Last Light Redux, and Dishonored: Definitive Edition just to name a few.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
