With Epic Games Store adding a shopping cart feature to their services, buying games from them has become much easier. Easier, but not perfect. Game bundles are a neat way to pack games in a series together. If you want to purchase an entire franchise of games, bundles are the way to go. Just add the games that aren’t in the bundle to your cart. It sounds good, but the problem is that there’s no button to place a game bundle into your cart. This problem exists on the Epic Games Launcher and the Epic Games Store website. Here’s a workaround for the issue until it gets resolved.
Working around the issue
The main problem that customers will face is the use of coupons. Let’s say you have a 25% coupon for an order in the Epic Games Store. You’d want to use that coupon on a single purchase of multiple games to make the most out of it. But since you can’t add bundles, the expensive stuff you’d want a discount for the most would need to be bought in a separate order. That means you’ll possibly need to pay for it at full price.
Before you panic, you can try this workaround first:
- Add the bundle to your Wishlist. Click on the plus (+) button next to the Buy Now button. Unlike individual games, there isn’t a dedicated button that says “Add to Wishlist” for bundled games.
2. On the upper right of the Epic Games app/website, click the “Wishlist” button to head on over to your Wishlist.
3. You should see the game bundle inside your Wishlist. The game should also have an “Add To Cart” button visible. Clicking on it should list the bundle on your cart.
It takes some more effort, but currently, this is the only way to do it. Hopefully, Epic Games will do something about it in the future.
