The Steam Summer Sale is officially underway. After long load times this morning, when the semi-annual sale kicked off around 10am PST, Steam seems to be loading a lot smoother now. And finally, peeping all those hot deals isn't such a chore anymore.
Once again, Steam has rid itself of timed flash deals. So there's no need to set an alarm to wake up and get a game in the dead of the night for $2.49 anymore. As with all Steam seasonal sales, essentially everything across the game-selling service is on sale. From newer games chipping off 15 percent, to classic indies shaving down their price to below $5. Hell, even Shadow of Mordor will cost you the same price as a cup of coffee. The perfect prep before Shadow of War releases this fall.
We've highlighted a few of the most notable deals below:
- Abzu: $5.99 (70 percent off)
- Misc. Final Fantasy Games (Final Fantasy III, VII, X/X-2 Remaster, etc.): (all 50 percent off)
- Firewatch: $8.99 (55 percent off)
- Hitman: The Complete First Season: $23.73 (66 percent off)
- Hollow Knight: $9.89 (34 percent off)
- Hyper Light Drifter: $9.99 (50 percent off)
- Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes: $4.94 (67 percent off)
- Mafia III: $14.79 (63 percent off)
- Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor: $3.99 (80 percent off)
- Stardew Valley: $8.99 (40 percent off)
- Steamworld Heist: $5.09 (66 percent off)
- Steins;Gate: $20.99 (40 percent off)
- Stellaris: $19.99 (50 percent off)
- Superhot: $14.99 (40 percent off)
- Transistor: $2.99 (85 percent off)
- Wolfenstein: The New Order: $9.99 (50 percent off)
On a personal level, I'm probably going to take 2064: Read Only Memories, Rakuen, and Cosmic Star Heroine off my own wishlist (which are ranging from 20 to 50 percent off). Thanks to the lack of timed sales, there's no need to pull out a loan or something before your next paycheck: you can just wait and spend money with the rest of your bills. The Steam Summer Sale ends on July 5.
