We are in the penultimate month before Christmas which is always exciting. This is because every November brings huge price slashes on almost everything before Santa Claus arrives, and this year is no different. Pretty much every online store will have its own slew of discounts, and here is the Epic Games store Black Friday sale 2023 start date and time so you know when to anticipate huge bargains for PC titles.
This has been one of the best years for video game releases of all time, and there’s still plenty more to anticipate. There’s the release date for Avatar Frontiers of Pandora in December, the Game Awards 2023 GOTY nominees have been announced for the event on December 7th, and the biggest thing yet to arrive is the confirmed release of a trailer for GTA 6. All of these upcoming events are early Christmas gifts to fans of video games.
While all of the above is exciting, so too are the Black Friday bargains. Again, this has been one of the best-ever years for video game releases, so upcoming discounts should help you grab even more amazing titles you missed out on.
