It’s here. The Steam Summer Sale has arrived. Do you know where your wallet is? Mine’s locked inside a matryoshka-like safe, which in turn is wrapped up in chains and locked by a key that I have fed to a snake which I have sent on a plane to a distant land.
The twist for this Summer Sale is team-based shenanigans. Everyone will be assigned a team, randomly, and these teams compete for rewards. The team with the most points - gained from crafting Summer Adventure badges - wins each day, and 30 members will receive 3 games from their wish list.
But enough faffing: what about the deals?
Today’s daily deals are a solid bunch:
- Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion £5.99/$7.99
- Democracy 3: £6.45/$8.49
- DayZ: £16.99/$25.49
- The Witcher 2: £2.99/$3.99
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown: £4.94/$8.49
- Divinity: Original Sin: £23.99/$31.99
- Don’t Starve: £2.74/$3.74
- Far Cry 3: £3.74/$7.49
- Dead Rising 3: £29.99/$37.49
That’s an exceptional start to the sale, with each game being pretty special. It’s hard to really recommend any over the others, but Far Cry 3 for less than £4 and less than a fiver for XCOM are both lovely.
And Dead Rising 3 isn’t even out yet, but is still 25 percent off. Not bad at all.
Let’s not forget about the flash sales, either. Remember, these are only good for 8 hours.
- Dead Island: Riptide: £4.99
- Hotline Miami: £1.04
- Mirror’s Edge: £2.49
- DMC: Devil May Cry: £7.49
You can vote on the next four games to enter the flash sale, too. Do it three times and you get a Summer Adventure trading card.
So, anything tickling your fancy yet?
