Steam Winter Sale Ends Soon: Grab Deals On Red Dead 2, Half-Life Alyx, And More Before Tomorrow
There are a ton of great PC games on sale through Steam right now as part of its annual Winter Sale.
Valve's annual Winter Sale has been live with thousands of PC game deals for nearly two weeks now, which means the annual sales bonanza is about to come to an end. You have until tomorrow, January 5, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET to take advantage of any discounts that catch your eye, including both games and DLC. The Steam Winter Sale has a ton of stellar deals on offer, including discounts on some of the best games of 2020.
The current Steam Winter Sale doesn't have a corresponding minigame or anything terribly in-depth to it, as some past Steam sales have. That said, you'll notice birds adorning the various hubs on the Steam store, and you can get "festive bird" stickers for use on Steam that celebrate various games. You can grab these from the .
But the real highlight of a Steam sale are the deals, and there is no shortage of them, including great new games released in 2020. Our Game of the Year, Half-Life: Alyx, is discounted to $45, although bear in mind you'll need a VR headset in order to play it. Other GameSpot Game of the Year nominees are on sale, including Hades for $20, Yakuza: Like a Dragon for $45, and Spiritfarer for $22.49.
With Halo's Master Chief Collection now complete on PC, you can pick it up for just $24, which works to about $4 per game--a real steal. Alternatively, you can buy its individual games for $6 a pop. Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete edition, the formerly PS4-exclusive open-world action game, is down to $40. Another ex-PS4 exclusive, Death Stranding, drops to $30.
Fall Guys may have fallen out of the zeitgeist compared to its launch, but it still makes for goofy fun and is down to $16. Another massively successful indie game from this year, Among Us, is $1 off, bringing its price to $4. Phasmophobia sees a small discount that takes it to $12.59, and Stardew Valley, fresh off update 1.5, is $10.
Doom Eternal was one of the year's best shooters and can be had for just $19.79. No Man's Sky, which has improved dramatically since its launch and continues to get substantial free updates, is down to $30. Monster Hunter World drops to $19.79, while its Iceborne expansion is down to $24.79. If The Mandalorian has put you in the mood for Star Wars, Jedi: Fallen Order is $24 and Star Wars: Squadrons is $24. Or if Cyberpunk 2077's brand of cyberpunk isn't doing it for you, Ghostrunner is down to $22.49.
Coinciding with the sale, the 2020 Steam Awards have been announced, including Steam's Game of the Year for 2020, Red Dead Redemption 2.
