For example, Borderlands 3 is up for pre-order, so does not have any publisher discount, but still benefits from the $10 Epic discount. "Any purchases made while the game was discounted during the Epic Mega Sale will be honored and no Masquerade violations will be assessed". The sale will run from today, until June 13. Be sure to check back each week for new free game offers. Discounts are also clearly marked on the store.
"If a developer or publisher chooses to not participate in our sales, we will honor that decision", Epic told Kotaku via email.
The game pulls together 80s retro nostalgia, innovative and experimental genre-defying gameplay, and tense, psychological horror to create one of the most fascinating and unique tales you can play.

While I generally do not endorse pre-ordering games - why pay now and wait when you can pay later and buy the game, knowing what reviewers have to say about it? You'd imagine that the game would return to the store once the mechanism was explained, but so far that doesn't seem to be the case.
