It looks like Steam is ready to kick-off its Winter Sale, meaning PC gamers need to ready their wallets for a bashing. Plethora of PC games are going to be sold for a discount, but the percentage of it isn’t yet revealed.
Steam Winter Sale will begin on December 22, but Valve is yet to confirm this. However, someone at PayPal screwed up and leaked the date early.
Oh we’ll be getting our game on, alright!
Now the question is, when will the sale end? Well, according to a different leak the sale is expected to end on January 4, 10 AM PST.
Keep in mind that Steam has made some changes to how the sales work. Here are the details:
In past sale events, we’ve asked for two discounts—a duration discount that runs for the length of the sale, and a feature discount that runs in the event that a game is featured on the front page. This year, to optimize the sale for customers and to allow us to feature and recommend your products in more ways to more customers, we’re asking for just one discount, to run the length of the sale.
We’ll still be highlighting top games on the front page for 24-48 hour spans, but those products will stay at their most competitive discount, before and after being featured. It’s not a major change, but it does make the sale a lot more valuable for customers, and it allows us to build sale tools that highlight and recommend products all sale long, instead of just during front page features.
We’ll let you know as soon as things are official and the list of products on sale is shared.
