The Steam Holiday sale is one of the brightest lights in the season of bargains. It’s a great time to pick up the games you’ve been waiting to buy – on the cheap! Also, with the ability to gift games to your friends on Steam, the sale makes last-minute presents a cinch!
Valve’s Steam platform provides a simple distribution and community hub for PC gaming, and its selection is unmatched. Now a huge selection of the latest and greatest PC games will be presented for the holidays at deep discounts. Running through Jan. 3rd 2014, the sale will feature great prices across the board. But the greatest discounts will be available in the short-term, on a rotating basis that will change every 8 hours.
Valve’s 8 hour flash sales are coupled with the usual daily deals and other discounts. Steam users looking for a discount on a particular game can add it to their wish list and set up notifications so they get alerted when that title goes on sale.
While the promotion is running, Steam will also host a Snow Globe trading card mini game. Users who collect enough of the special Snow Globe cards can earn an exclusive badge which unlocks in-game content in free-to-play titles like Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2.
The initial set of daily deals includes discounts on BioShock Infinite, Monaco, Dishonored, The Stanley Parable and a handful of other top titles from the digital distribution platform. This huge sale comes hot on the heels of 2013′s Autumn Sale, which began just before Thanksgiving. Head on over to Steam’s sale landing page to get in on the bargains!
