You’re not quite done with holiday shopping these days until you’ve bought yourself some games at nice discounts and that’s really what the Steam Winter Sale is for. Many of you have been waiting for it and many will be delighted to find out that the Steam Winter Sale 2016 date has now been confirmed. The sale is going to go live later this week and will offer discounts on some great PC games.
The Steam Winter Sale 2016 date confirmation comes from the official Twitter account of PayPal UK which tweeted earlier today that the Steam Winter Sale 2016 kicks off on December 22nd, that’s Thursday.
The last big sale that Steam held was its annual Autumn Sale several weeks ago. It provided great discounts on some of the top games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Civilization 6, Dark Souls, and Lift is Strange.
The Steam Winter Sale 2016 date falls on the same day when Valve opens voting for the Steam Awards. The first Steam Awards category is The Villain Most in Need of a Hug Award,” nominees include Dead by Daylight, Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, and Portal 2.
Visitors will have 24 hours to vote on a new category every day until December 29th. Valve will announce the Steam Awards winners on New Year’s Eve.
