Steam hosts several major sales each year, but the Summer Sale is often considered the big one. It gives PC fans two weeks to scoop up new games and discounts a frankly massive amount of software. Many games get their prices slashed by up to 90 percent, and even major new releases tend to go on sale at discounted prices.
Of course, there’s no word yet on which specific games will be discounted. However, if you’re looking to buy some new games, it’s worth adding titles you’re interested in to your Steam wishlist. If you do, you’ll be notified of which titles are discounted when the Summer Sale 2020 begins. You’ll also be able to visit your wishlist and sort the items by the discount amount so that you can make the most out of your money.
There’s not much of a wait left. The Steam Summer Sale 2020 is slated to begin on June 25 and run all the way through July 9. That gives you two full weeks to grab new games — or, more honestly, to expand your ever-growing backlog.
