As was rumored, the Steam Halloween Sale has begun today. The focus is on Horror games and movies. You can find tons of discounted PC games, from AAA to indie. The sale lasts for about a week, ending November 1.

Here are some highlighted deals:

  • Dead by Daylight $9.99 (50% off)
  • DOOM $20.09 (33 % off)
  • Friday the 13th: The Game $19.99 (50% off)
  • Dying Light $19.99 (50% off)
  • Amnesia Collection $3.49 (90% off)
  • Alien Isolation $11.99 (70% off)
  • Crypt of the Necrodancer $2.99 (80% off)
  • Outlast $3.99 (80% off)
  • Grim Dawn $8.49 (66% off)
  • The Evil Within $9.99 (50% off)

Some big non-Horror games are also on sale:

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – -Game of the Year Edition $19.99 (60% off)
  • ARK: Survival Evolved $29.99 (50% off)
  • Planet Coaster $24.74 (45% off)
  • Undertale $4.99 (50% off)
  • Tyranny $17.99 (60% off)
  • XCOM 2 $23.99 (60% off)

Note that some deals are definitely better over at GOG’s Halloween sale. Steam’s Walking Dead bundle costs $28.98, whereas GOG has the same bundle for $18.95. Most of their sale prices are comparable (Outlast is $1 cheaper on GOG).

As in previous years there don’t appear to be any flash deals or limited time offers. The big Summer and Winter sales involve Steam trading cards and sometimes little mini-games, but nothing for the poor little Halloween sale.

If you miss the sale, fear not. Steam will host a Black Friday sale right around Thanksgiving, and then of course there’s the big Winter sale at the end of the year. ‘Tis the season for building that backlog of games.

The Steam Halloween Sale ends November 1.
