It’s that time of year again, time to buy a bunch of PC games you’ll never play. Yep, it’s another Steam Sale! Here are the start date and time and some of the best deals available. Have a good time!
We all know that Steam sales are a bargain and a waste at the same time. The games are so damn cheap that you end up buying more than you could ever play. Still, who doesn’t love a good deal?
This time it’s the Steam Autumn Sale and you can expect a huge number of games, across all genres, to be heavily discounted. You can find all the information you need about the Steam Autumn Sale below.
- Sadly, pre-orders of Hogwarts Legacy will not be included in the Steam Sale, but you can get them here, fellow Harry Potter nerds: Hogwarts Legacy
Steam Autumn Sale: Starting time
The Steam Autumn Sale begins on Tuesday, November 22 at 10am PT (1pm ET / 6pm GMT / 7pm CET) and will run for exactly one week until November 29th. This is effectively Steam’s Black Friday, except it lasts for a week. I hope you’re already done game of the year this yearand you are ready for something new.
Maybe one day some of these puppies will enter a Steam Sale?
Top 10 deals in the Steam Autumn Sale
We come to the most important part of the sale: which games are on offer and how much will they be discounted? Here are just a few of the titles we’ve heard of so far, in no particular order:
Portal 2 (-90% / $0.99)
With overwhelmingly positive reviews and a massive campaign, it would be almost foolish not to pick up Portal 2. Plus…it literally costs $1. There are very few things that can still be had for so low a price.
Stray (-20% / $23.99)
You can check out our Stray review here. This is a solid deal for those who want a cozy, plodding like a cat single-player game. It’s not the greatest savings with only -20%, but it’s not that expensive to start with.
Age of Empires IV: Anniversary Edition (-33% / $26.79)
Age of Empires IV is the kind of game you could spend hundreds of hours playing. While it doesn’t reach the heights of the second game, it’s still a very enjoyable title that’s worth a solid $27, especially considering it’s the Anniversary Edition.
Red Dead Redemption 2 (-67% / $19.79)
You don’t need us to explain what Red Dead Redemption is. But we will strongly encourage anyone who hasn’t played yet to check it out. Even if you don’t like cowboys, this world is good enough for anyone to enjoy.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (-90% / $3.99)
If you are a fan of the Desparados series, or were a fan of the old Robin Hood: Legend of Sherwood game, then buy it now. Seriously, Shadow Tactics is one of the best stealth tactics ever made, and it’s a steal for $4.
Unravel (-90% / $1.99)
This is a very nice platformer and is now available for a historically low price. Sure, it won’t be a game you can keep playing for hundreds of hours, but it will give you a few fun afternoons. And that must be worth the $2.
Fallout: New Vegas (-75% / $2.49)
Okay, maybe we look cheap by including so many games for under $5, but times are tough and when games are this cheap you can take a chance without fear of buyer’s remorse. But don’t worry, you won’t regret getting Fallout: New Vegas, which remains one of the highest rated games in the entire Steam database, and is possibly the best in the series.
Cyberpunk 2077 (-50% / $29.99)
Okay, this is going to be super controversial. Some people would say this isn’t even worth $30. But, and this is a big but, if you like dystopian sci-fi, for all its flaws, Cyberpunk 2077 is probably the best version of that fantasy you can find. And CDPR is committed to improving it, so you can think of it as more of an investment.
Axe: Shadows Die Twice (-50% / $29.99)
And that’s our very least controversial suggestion for $30. Sekiro is widely considered to be a thoughtfully developed fantastic game. There really aren’t any big negatives we can say for this one, it’s still a great game and it’s worthy of your time.
Hades (-40% / $14.99)
We will end on a high note: Hades. This is an extremely popular game and is widely considered one of the best rogue dungeon crawlers made in the last decade. In fact, it’s probably one of the best rogue dungeon crawlers of all time.
And there you have it folks, everything you need to know to enjoy the Autumn Stream Sale. Oh, and if you still need a Steam Deck to actually play some of these games, we got you.
