Packs found on Arc will be 50% off from November 23rd to November 28th

The wording of the message is odd. It reads like this is a Zen sale, as well as a discount on select “packs” when you buy them via Arc/Steam or the consoles. It doesn’t explicitly mention C-Store items, yet it says “all items/packs in-game”.

A friend is currently in-game and confirms C-Store items are indeed 25% off, which is good news! That’s the highest discount rate I remember seeing; typical sales, including past Black Fridays, had been 20% off. Time to spend some money!

P.S. Cryptic, please sic an editor on these announcments. kthxbai




One thought on “Black Friday Sale… I think?

  1. Good summary of the sales and how they work. It’s definitely nice that even the most basic discount is more than in previous years.

    I understood the difference between the different discount amounts in game vs buying with Arc and such just fine. My confusion is more in how exactly these points you’re supposed to get for buying Zen work and how you spend them.
