Steam's Summer Sale is now live with oodles of PC game discounts

Steam's Summer Sale is now live with oodles of PC game discounts

The Steam Summer Sale will last until July 5, giving you two full weeks to stock up on any games you need, want, or have a slight interest in buying.

Aside from the somewhat confusing nature of the calculator's layout (it's not entirely clear what OldSpend and PWSpendare), this is a fantastic way to have a general idea of how much money you've spent on Steam over the years. It's essentially the Black Friday of online video game sales.

In 2017 the sale started on the 22nd, so this year's beginning on the 21st makes a lot of sense. There is, however, a free browser game you can play on Steam's homepage. For starters, the whole Fallout franchise is available at 50% off or more.

As such, you should expect top titles like Assassin's Creed: Origins, Hitman, Nier: Automata, Dark Souls 3, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and Total War: Warhammer 2 to see big cost reductions.

Sony Responds To Fortnite PS4-Switch Account Block Without Saying Much
Despite being able to connect the Switch version to Xbox, PC, and mobile players, Sony still won't budge on cross platform play. On Wednesday, we reported that PlayStation 4 users were being blocked from moving their Fortnite accounts onto the Switch .

As of the launch, you can now find deals on games like the popular battle-royale shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for 33% off and space survival game Empyrion for 50% off. Tacoma, Rocket League, and What Remains of Edith Finch are $10 each, while Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is down to $36.

The sale isn't limited to software, either.

While I'm personally not that excited anymore about new Steam sales, as Valve removed much of the excitement from them by doing away with Flash sales, user voting on special deals and such, it may still be of interest to Steam users who are looking to pick up discounted games and other things.

Some links to supporting retailers are automatically made into affiliate links, and GameSpot may receive a small share of those sales.
