Here at Trusted Reviews, we understand two key things: Steam sales are one of the best ways to bolster your library, and it can be difficult to keep track of when they’re going on.
So, we’ve made an essential guide of when you should expect the next Steam Sale and when a sale is on, as is the case with the current Steam Summer Sale 2019, we’ll bring you some of the must-have deals so that you don’t miss out. What’s not to love?
Steam sales take place throughout the year, and offer up some of the best-in-class PC gaming deals. Now, as Steam feels the pressure from Epic’s Game Store and other digital marketplaces, expect these deals to get even better.
While Valve rarely releases details of its Steam Sales in advance, we keep track of all of the latest rumours and news to make sure you’re kept up to date about when and where to spend all your money.

It’s better to get your fill now, because after this there likely won’t be another suitable sale until Halloween, so look at some of the deals below and get a big handful of those games, why don’t you?
Steam Summer Sale 2019 — What are the best deals?
Here’s our pick of some of the best games you can get in Steam’s 2019 Summer Sale. If any of these take your fancy, move quick, the sale ends on July 9.
Ape Out – £7.69 (30% off)
You’re an APE. You want to get OUT. Simple but effective, this one offers up stylish simian ultraviolence, and it’s one of the better indie action games of the last few months.
Football Manager 2019 – £12.91 (66% off)
Football manager is probably one of the best strategy titles in existence, with a level of simulation around the beautiful game that is perhaps obscene. If you skip this one because you don’t like Football, that’s a major own goal, it’s a unique story-generating machine like no other.

Resident Evil 2 – £29.69 (34% off)
Quite simply the best horror game released this year. There are several pretenders, but this is a perfect example of how remakes should be handled, and a zombie game that makes its zombies feel terrifying.
Total War: Warhammer II – £19.99 (50% off)
Wouldn’t Total War be fun if instead of Samurai or medieval knights, it was lizardmen, elves and vampires giving each other a good shivving? That’s the basic premise of Total War: Warhammer and this sequel is brilliant. Bonus deal – the original is only £9.99 a the moment, also going for 50 percent off.
Yakuza 0 – £7.49 (50% off)
Yakuza 0 is the best Yakuza game, and by extension, probably one of the better open-world crime games. It’s not GTA, it doesn’t feel a thing like Saints Row, and it has a tone all of its own. This lets you explore an 80’s era Tokyo, and we can’t recommend it enough.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – £24.99 (50% off)
Do yourself a favour and play this one as Kassandra. Using Kassandra, stab, sneak and stalk your way around ancient Greece, in the pinnacle of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. While there’s DLC available, this game should last a casual player until Christmas, there’s rafts of things to see and do.
Surviving Mars – £9.99 (50% off)
One of Paradox’s less successful strategy games, Surviving Mars is still a Paradox title, and Surviving Mars has you building a Mars colony. Paradox’s after-launch support is some of the best in the business, so there’s plenty more content still to come, and although keeping humans alive on Mars isn’t easy, this will keep you coming back for more.
