Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2020 Offers Thousands Of Deals
Here we go again.
Lunar New Year celebrations are happening around the world right now, and retailers aren't missing a beat. Steam, for example, is having its first major sale of 2020. The Lunar New Year sale includes thousands of discounts on new and old games alike. The sale is live through January 27 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
Some of the best games of 2019 are on sale, including A Plague Tale: Innocence (perfect for celebrating the Year of the Rat) and Disco Elysium. A brand-new expansion for Frostpunk just released, and while it's not on sale separately, you can get the Frostpunk Season Pass bundle on sale for $24.47--it comes with all DLC including the new expansion, The Last Autumn. The base game is also discounted to $12 and the Game of the Year Edition is down to $32.81. Meanwhile, Destiny fans can snag the Destiny 2 Upgrade Edition, which includes the Shadowkeep and Forsaken expansions, for $37.49.
Aside from all the discounted games, the sale is keeping with the Lunar New Year theme with various activities and freebies. Each day, you can open a new red envelope (which are traditionally given as gifts during Chinese New Year) and receive Year of the Rat Tokens, which can be spent toward seasonal items available exclusively in the Lunar New Year Night Market.
The Night Market will be available through the duration of the sale and offers a wide range of seasonal goods, like animated profile backgrounds, chat room effects, chat stickers, and more. You can also use your Year of the Rat Tokens to purchase the Lunar New Year coupon, which can be redeemed for $5 off your next purchase during the sale. You can buy the coupon up to two times.
Unlike Steam's summer or winter sales, which usually span multiple weeks, the Lunar New Year sale runs only for a few days, so be sure to check out the huge offering of game deals while they're available. Because there are literally thousands of deals to sift through, we've highlighted some of our picks below. Plus, be sure to check out the other games sales happening right now for Lunar New Year--you may find better prices than Steam at places like Fanatical, Green Man Gaming, and Xbox Live.
