Pity your wallet: the Steam summer sale has begun
Gamers, prepare your credit card for a hurtin’ – because the Steam summer sale is underway.
Between now and 21st June, Valve’s online gaming store will be offering hundreds of games and add-ons at huge reductions. New sale items are added every 12 hours, so canny gamers will want to check back at least once a day.
As of the time of writing, our picks of the first bunch of reduced games would be the XCOM: Enemy Unknown complete collection (£4.99 down from £24.99), Valkyria Chronicles (£3.74 down from £14.99), the Metro Redux bundle (£6.79 down from £33.98), and Telltale Games’ Tales from the Borderlands (£9.49 down from £18.99).
With reductions of up to 90 percent on some items, there can be a tendency for any visit to the Steam store during sales to turn into a digital trolley dash, filling your cart with all sorts of games that you’re never going to get round to playing. So shop smart out there – or just take a couple of weeks off work at the end of June and plough your way through the whole lot on a caffeine- and Doritos-fuelled game bender.
