The event is filled to the brim with over 15,000 games up for grabs. In addition, Valve is also running a special promotion to go along with the Winter Sale. Dubbed the Extremely Cozy Cottage of Surprises, where every day that you visit the store you can open up a door where you’ll receive special items such as emotes, wallpapers, and in-game items for Steam games. Going through all 15,000 games would take longer than the event itself, so we went ahead and picked out a few that we think are worth picking up.
Let’s start off with some 2018 games, as Hitman 2, an excellent stealth game, is on sale for $41.99, a 30% discount, and Monster Hunter: World is available for $39.59, at a 34% price cut. Yakuza 0 has been discounted to $13.39, which is 33% off, as well as the insanely hard strategy game XCOM 2, which has an equally insane 75% price cut for $14.99. Assassins Creed Odyssey is available for $29.99, a 50% discount, and the popular Zed killing multiplayer game Killing Floor 2 is a mere $9.90, a 67% discount.
An honorable mention for this sale is the Valve Complete Pack, which is a collection every single game that Valve has developed and published. If you have never played any of these PC gaming classics, this is the best chance to get them. At $12.68, which is a ridiculous 91% discount, you can’t go wrong. The Steam Winter Sales Event officially starts today, going all the way through Thursday, January 3.
