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, 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.
