The annual Steam winter sale begins the following week

The huge Steam winter sale from Valve will begin next week. Beginning at 10AM PT / 1PM ET on December 22nd, thousands of titles will be on sale through January 5th.

You may often find attractive discounts, too. A previous sale discounted Halo: The Master Chief Collection by 50%, and the Ultimate Edition of Control was discounted by the same amount. This year, Valve has been teasing sales on hundreds of games, including Fallout 76, SD Gundam Battle Alliance, Ready or Not, Two Point Campus, Persona 5 Royal, Sonic Frontiers, F1 Manager 2022, and many more. It’s that time of year again, when you buy games you’ll never play.

In addition, beginning in 2023, Valve will hold yearly spring sales rather than Luna New Year sales. The dates for the first spring clearance sale are March 16th through the 23rd. Valve stated that the spring discount on Steam was “a popular request from our developer and publisher community” when they launched it earlier this year.

With the Winter Sale starting next week and the following Spring Sale, Steam will have held a significant sale throughout each of the four seasons since the beginning of the year. At 10AM PT / 1PM ET on December 22nd, the Steam shop will go live with the winter deal.
