Just days after GOG.com’s big summer sale came to a close, Steam is swooping in to save you from a drought of great deals. At 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, Steam launched its own massive sales event, putting many games and bundles on sale for up to 90% off their original price, including AAA games that launched as recently as this month.
Over the next few weeks, you’re going to have to pace yourself in order to avoid bankruptcy, so we’ve decided to provide a helping hand by handpicking the very best deals we could find.
Remember, almost every deal (if not every single deal) has been repeated at least once before the end of the sale during previous sales events, so don’t make any rash decisions thinking you’ll never see a deal that great again. With that caveat out of the way, here are the best deals on day one of the Steam Monster Summer Sale:
UPDATE: Looks like the GTA V discount was a mistake. We’ll update the price when Steam calms down. In the meantime, we’ll throw in a 6th game just for good measure.
UPDATE 2: A Rockstar spokesperson has informed me that GTA V itself is not on sale, just the bundles with Cash Cards included. Bummer.
- XCOM Franchise Bundle – $8.49 (83% off)
- Darksiders Franchise – $11.99 (80% off)
- Valkyria Chronicles – $4.99 (75% off)
- Homeworld Remaster Collection – $13.99 (60% off)
- Tales from the Borderlands – $12.49 (50% off)
