Prepare your wallets, PC gamers. Steam is about to commence its winter sales in just 5 days, yep, the winter sales will commence on 22nd December. There will be a lot of PC games that are going to go on sale on the special day and the as you already know, the discounts will be amazing.
Technically, Valve still hasn’t announced the date for Steam winter sales, however, PayPal ended up leaking the news about Steam winter sales.
For those who are wondering when the winter sales will end, the expected date according to a leak is 4th January, 2016. So there is plenty of time for those who are willing to dig holes in their pockets in these days. Do keep in mind that Valve made some changes on how sales are going to work and if you have been oblivious of that, you can check out the latest method below.
In past sale events, we’ve asked for two discounts—a duration discount that runs for the length of the sale, and a feature discount that runs in the event that a game is featured on the front page. This year, to optimize the sale for customers and to allow us to feature and recommend your products in more ways to more customers, we’re asking for just one discount, to run the length of the sale.
We’ll still be highlighting top games on the front page for 24-48 hour spans, but those products will stay at their most competitive discount, before and after being featured. It’s not a major change, but it does make the sale a lot more valuable for customers, and it allows us to build sale tools that highlight and recommend products all sale long, instead of just during front page features.
