The Steam Summer Sale Is Live Right Now

Witcher 3 CD PROJEKT RED

The sale is set to run through July 5, and there are already a number of major and minor games on sale.

If the date, Thursday, June 21 is correct, which seems likely seeing as past year the sale started on Thursday, June 22, then we have just six weeks until Steam game prices tumble. Personally, we have spent a whopping $8,722 on Steam and this has left us pleasantly (?) surprised.

The Steam Summer sale tends to be the biggest of all publisher Valve's discount events, with huge swathes of the catalogue seeing its price slashed dramatically.

Elsewhere, you can pick up The Brookhaven Experiment for only $4.99 (75 percent off the original $19.99 asking price) and score discounts of up to 85 percent on select Sonic games. I say "looks like" because I literally can't get it to load at the moment without crashing, but it's the first ambitious sale meta-game I've seen Valve attempt in a while, so that's nice.

Irish border agreement has to be part of Brexit deal, Juncker warns
Despite the stalemate, Juncker said he did not consider a "no deal" scenario likely, although admitted that the European Union is making preparations for one "just in case".

Their tweet stated that the sale is set begin 24 hours, which would mean today and it should be starting very soon.

Valve added a game to the sale called Saliens which you can play to enter giveaways for certain games. For starters, the whole Fallout franchise is available at 50% off or more.

It's not surprising given the regularity of the Steam sales, or at least the summer ones. New games are not discounted by much usually while older - read month old - games are often discounted quite a bit.

We'll be bringing you a list of more obscure Steam Sale deals later this week as always, but for now?
