The Steam Summer Sale is Here!

Written by Nate Lakritz on June 23rd, 2016.

Today, June 23rd, marks the start of the 2016 Steam Summer Sale! This year’s sale will last from today until July 4th, inevitably cleaning out our wallets and filling everyone’s gaming libraries with tons of titles. The theme is “Summer Picnic”, but there doesn’t appear to be any mini-games or special events related to the theme. Also, there are no flash or daily deals, making every price-drop stable for the entirety of the event.

As usual, you can earn Summer Sale themed trading cards by cycling through your discovery queue. You can also receive cards by crafting game badges or making a purchase. With ten cards, the limited-edition Summer Sale Badge can be crafted. Alternatively, cards can be sold in the Community Market for monetary credit. If marketed, the profit can potentially go towards purchasing cheap games.

Some of the most notable titles on sale are as follows:

  • Payday 2: $5.00 (-75%)
  • Stardew Valley: $11.99 (-20%)
  • NBA 2K16: $11.99 (-80%)
  • Entire Call of Duty Franchise: (-50~67%)
  • Stellaris: $35.99 (-10%)
  • Entire Sonic Franchise: (-50%)
  • Orcs Must Die 2: $3.74 (-75%)
  • Surgeon Simulator: $1.99 (-80%)
  • ARMA 3: $19.99 (-50%)
  • GTA V: $35.99 (-40%)
  • DOOM: $35.99 (-40%)
  • Rocket League: $11.99 (-40%)
  • Fallout 4: $29.99 (-50%)
  • The Witcher: Wild Hunt: $24.99 (-50%)
  • Cobalt: $6.99 (-65%)
