Steam Halloween Sale 2019: Last Day To Grab These Deals
Stock up on some spooky games.
Update: As predicted, Steam's Halloween sale launched on October 28 and is live now until November 1 with plenty of horror game deals to go around. The sale page also highlights some of the Halloween events happening in games right now. (Note: As usual when these big sales launch, Steam's store page was down for a period of time, but it should now be back to normal.)
Some of the top-selling games on sale right now include Capcom's acclaimed remake of Resident Evil 2 for 50% off ($30), The Blackout Club for 20% off ($24), and Dying Light for 66% off ($13.59). Blair Witch is on sale for 25% off ($22.49), and The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is 33% off ($20.09).
Quite a few horror classics are included, such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent for 85% off ($3), Dead Space 2 for 75% ($5), and Alan Wake for 73% off ($4.04). If you love horror games and have missed out on any of these gems, don't hesitate to grab them at this price.
If you're brave enough to enjoy horror VR, there are some options available for you as well, including Five Nights at Freddy's VR for 30% off ($21).
On the sale page, Steam also highlights some Halloween events happening right now, such as the Stranger Things crossover in Dead By Daylight and the Left 4 Dead 2 event in Dying Light. If you already own these games, it's worth hopping in to check out the latest content.

Original story follows.
As is tradition, dates for Steam's upcoming sales have leaked, allowing gamers plenty of time to save up for those sweet PC game deals. According to a tweet from Steam Database (@SteamDB), an account unaffiliated with Steam that tracks various information about the platform, the dates for Steam's Halloween, Autumn (Steam's stand-in for Black Friday), and Winter sales have been revealed online by "multiple developers" who "posted about it in multiple places despite Valve asking otherwise."
As with all rumors, take this information with a grain of salt, but the dates listed below do line up closely with dates from previous years. The Steam Database Twitter account also has a history of reporting leaked dates that later turned out to be correct, including this year's Steam summer sale.
Steam 2019 sale dates:
- Halloween sale: Oct. 28 - Nov. 1
- Autumn sale: Nov. 26 - Dec. 3
- Winter sale: Dec. 19 - Jan. 2
The first one up will be the Halloween sale, and it's expected to kick off in about a week, lasting only a few days. This will be the best time to snag any horror games on your wishlist at a great price, but you'll find plenty of games that aren't strictly horror on sale too. Some of last year's best Halloween sale deals included Friday the 13th: The Game and Soma for $6 each, Salt and Sanctuary for $9, Hollow Knight for $10. and Dead Cells for $20. If you've held off on buying some of this year's horror releases, like Resident Evil 2, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, or Blair Witch, this may be your chance to grab them for cheap.
In the meantime, other digital stores have already begun their Halloween sales, including the Epic Games Store, which is offering some solid discounts on Borderlands 3, Control, Rainbow Six Siege, and more, as well as two spooky games that you can claim for free: Alan Wake's American Nightmare and Observer. The PlayStation Store's Halloween sale is also going strong, with markdowns on A Plague Tale: Innocence, the Resident Evil franchise, The Evil Within 2, and much more.
