Can you hear it? The slowly fading whistle sound effect as your bank balance reduces closer to 0? That can mean only one thing gamers, it’s the Steam Winter Sale!
That’s right. Valve has returned to save Christmas, Hanukkah, and December 2020. But unlike years past, they’re not the only digital bargain bin in town. The competition this year is stiff: GOG have been offering discounts since the start of the month, while Epic are literally giving away games.
But Steam are running a few special offers of their own to tempt us back to the storefront. Purchases earn points, and points mean prizes. What’s the prize this year? Bird stickers.
You can claim one every other day for the duration of the sale. They’re quite cute, it must be said.
Of course, the Steam Awards are also open for business. Members of the public can vote on categories like ‘Best Game You Suck At’ and ‘Better With Friends’. For this act of good gamer citizenry, you can expect a random selection of trading cards. Such fun!
The sale runs until 6pm on January 6th UK time. So what’s on offer? Short answer, quite a lot. Here’s a quick overview to get you started:
- Hollow Knight – £5.49
- Half Life: Alyx – £34.86
- Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout – £12.79
- Hades – £15.59
- Red Dead Redemption II – £36.84
- Borderlands 3 – £16.49
- Sea of Thieves – £17.49
- The Elder Scrolls Online – £5.99

Make the most of Steams final sale of 2020.
