PC gamers rejoice! One of the biggest annual PC sales have arrived courtesy of the Steam Winter Sale. The sale runs from now through January 3, 2019.
During the Steam Winter Sale you can find solid deals on most of the entire Steam library. You’ll definitely want to check out sales on some of the best games of the year like Monster Hunter: World (34% off), Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (50% off), Jurassic World Evolution (75% off) and Dragon Quest 11 (40% off).
This year Steam has added an Advent Calendar of sorts, called the Extremely Cozy Cottage of Surprises. Up to once per day you can open a new page to reveal three digital goodies for Steam, such as emojis or holiday knick-knacks that add to a Knick-Knack Collector Badge. Note that any knick-knacks in your inventory must be used by February 2, 2019.
If you miss a day you can easily open up the previous doors. But the cozy cottage will disappear once the Winter Sale ends.
While shopping for sales you can also vote for The Steam Awards 2018. The categories are slightly less confusing and scatterbrained than previous years. Nominees are not restricted to games that released in 2018. The Labor of Love category alone includes Grand Theft Auto V (2015 on PC), Path of Exile (2013), and Dota 2 (2013).
Each vote grants a digital Steam Awards Trading card. Voting ends the same time the sale ends. The winners of the Steam Awards will be announced in February 2019.
