Steam Summer Sale 2018 may kick off today

22 June, 2018, 11:09 | Author: Sammy Rose

The Steam Summer Sale is coming, and according to leaks, it should be live in a matter of hours. It's easy to overspend during the Steam sales, so be sure to check out our Steam Summer Sale guide to make sure you're getting the best deals possible.

The leak seems credible as it would follow suit to what Steam have done over the past couple of years, with 2016's sale beginning on the 23 and last year's being the 22.

Steam, the video game distribution platform created by Valve Corporation, provides daily discounts on select games, but its recurring seasonal and holiday sales offer broader discounts for longer periods of time.

Cue the memes of empty wallets money being thrown at screens: the Steam summer sale is here.

Iran staff member hospitalized during Spain game
Saeid Ezatolahi, his team-mates and nearly the entire Iranian bench celebrated wildly before the referee ruled the goal out. Spain will play their final Group B game against Morocco, and Iran will wrap up the stage against Portugal, on Monday.


Valve added a game to the sale called Saliens which you can play to enter giveaways for certain games. The sale ends on July 5th, 2018 and its official name is the Intergalactic Summer Sale.

Each year the Steam Summer Sale, alongside the Steam Winter Sale, famously drops the biggest game discounts for PC gamers, with titles right up to the quality of the incoming Fallout 76 and Cyberpunk 2077 reduced in price.

Games are available for the same discount throughout the sale which means that there is no hurry to buy them on day one. Is there anything you'll be hoping to pick up? Steam sales can make your backlog pretty bloated fast, so make sure you're spending on cash on stuff you actually plan on playing.
