Hooray! It’s that time of year again where you reluctantly add more titles to your never-ending backlog of games that you’ll never play!
The 2017 Steam Summer Sale is happening now through July 5th, and will feature deep discounts on a variety of old and new PC games.
Steam’s servers are currently a little overloaded due to the initial influx of gamers curious to see if any of their wishlist items went on sale, so be patient and refresh store.steampowered.com a couple of times.
Here are some highlights we’ve seen so far:
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor — $3.99
South Park: The Stick of Truth — $7.49
Mafia III — $14.79
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare — $29.99
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands — $40.19
NieR: Automata — $41.99
In our opinion, the best value of the Steam Summer Sale comes from fun, low-cost indie games like SteamWorld Heist ($5.09) or Rise & Shine ($7.49). They’re stylish, innovative, and tons of fun. And because they don’t require a lot of time investment, you might actually finish the game!
Steam recently moved away from their Daily and Flash sale format, so if you see a game at a price you’re comfortable with, just go ahead and get it — it’ll be that price for the duration of the sale event.
