Taking place at regular intervals throughout the year, Steam sales offer some of the year's best gaming deals, but they're often announced at fairly short notice. Want to get ahead of the pack? Here's all you need to know about bagging a bargain – and our pick of the very best Summer Sale deals.
We're expecting 2016 to feature four Steam sales. The Steam Summer Sale, which is live right now, is the biggie. But there should also be sales to roughly coincide with Christmas, Halloween, and autumn in general.
This is where you'll find all the latest details for the next Steam Sale, plus regular updates on the best Summer Sale deals.
When is the Steam Summer Sale?
The Steam Summer Sale kicked off off on June 23, 2016 at 5:45pm UK time (9:45am PDT), though Valve didn't announce it in advance.
How did we know it was coming? Because PayPal UK tweeted the details, which pretty much meant it was confirmed.
So how long do you have to max out your credit card? The Summer Sale runs until 6:00pm BST (10am Pacific time) on July 4.
That's more than a week's worth of bargain hunting, but with so many deals on offer, it can be hard to separate the best from the rest. Which is why you should bookmark this page and check back regularly for all the latest and greatest discounts.
