The Steam Summer Sale Is Finally Here

Steam is the most popular store for PC games, and it usually holds a major sale event each summer. Right on schedule, this year’s Steam Summer Sale has kicked off.

The ‘Steam 3000 Summer Sale’ is now live from now until July 7 at 10 AM Pacific Time. As usual with Steam’s major sales, nearly every game in the store has some significant discount, from first-person shooters to simulation games to interactive novels. Purchasing games also unlocks badges and other items you can use on your Steam profile and chats.

There are a few new all-time low prices this time around, such as The Sims 4 for $4.99 — according to SteamDB, that game has dropped to $9.99 many times, but never lower. However, many other games are at their usual sale event prices, like Fallout: New Vegas for $2.99 (the same price it has been during every sale for the past few years).

Still, if you have a bunch of games in your wishlist, now is as good of a time as any to add them to your collection. Steam sales are also a wonderful opportunity to purchase games that were too buggy at launch for most people. Cyberpunk 2077, the futuristic open-world game that was notoriously broken when it was released in December 2020, has received plenty of bug fixes and is now just $29.99 (50% off).
