The Steam Summer sale is an annual games sale that every gamer looks forward to each year. 

Many mega and indie games go for fantastic prices on Steam and this year is no different. Regardless if you are in the market to try out new games or just want to to let them sit in your Steam library, now is the time to go check the sale out. 

The Steam Summer sale will end on 9 July at 1am (GMT +8).

Here are a few picks from the store that are pretty great deals form the team.

Hades

Hades is an Action-RPG game that is very similar to something like Diablo and falls under the category of being a “rougelite”. 

There is a reason why this game won multiple Game of the Year awards in 2020, and this boils down to great gameplay, and compelling storytelling.

Not to mention, this game, even at full price, is an extremely affordable buy. The amount of content that you get at just S$22 is ridiculous. One can argue that even some AAA titles do not have the amount of depth this game has.

Now at 30 per cent off, the game retails for S$15.40. 

It may not seem like much, but this game is worth every single cent spent on it. The action is great, the gameplay is smooth, the world is vibrant and the characters are very memorable. Plus, you’ll be playing what many have called it their 2020 game of the year.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

At this point, you would think that The Witcher 3 is an old classic in the gaming world. But with the emergence of the “Witcher” Netflix series, the game’s sales are still going pretty strong, and rightfully so. The game is actually very good (compared to some recent futuristic offerings from the developer).

Despite being a 6-year-old game, The Witcher 3’s graphics still hold up pretty well for today’s standards. CD Projekt Red has always been masters of visual and gameplay designs (when they’re not plagued with bugs, and yes, the game has most of its bugs ironed out by now) and The Witcher 3 is no exception.

Originally going for S$62.99 for the Game of the Year edition, the game has received a massive 80 per cent price cut, and is now only going for S$12.59

The Crysis series

Every heard the phrase “Can your computer run Crysis”? No? Well, you were probably too young to remember.

But if you actually couldn’t play Crysis back in the day because you had a terribly underpowered computer, now is the time to try it.

Crysis is a first-person shooter game that taxed computers in the late 2000s, and because the game was so demanding in 2007, not many PCs could run it at its high graphics settings and resolutions. It was still somewhat playable on lower-end computers at that time, but the experience just wasn’t that great.

But guess what? Since we all have at least a working GPU now (yes, even you, dear GTX 960 user), we can enjoy Crysis and its collection in all its glory.

Crysis, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 can be bought in a bundle on Steam right now at S$17.11, giving us a whooping 89 per cent discount over the original prices of the games.

Also, if your computer still can't run Crysis, you should probably stop using a potato.

Hitman and Hitman 2

The Hitman franchise follows Agent 47, a modern, ruthless assassin that infiltrates various compounds to assassinate his target. He will do it in a tuxedo, a chef’s outfit or even in a chicken costume.

Yes, you can kill your target while donning a mascot outfit. And if that’s not enough for you, you can actually try multiple ways to assassinate your target, be it by electrocution, “accidental” deaths, explosions – you choose.

Both games have a combination of around 5-10 missions (and sandbox maps) that you can play around with, and each mission is infinitely replayable as you find various ways to assassinate your target.

Both games have a free trial, with the subsequent levels locked behind a paywall, so you can choose not to buy them if you dislike the game and its gameplay. 

But if you do want to buy, the Hitman: Game of the Year bundle only costs S$16.78 for an 80 per cent discount, while Hitman 2 costs S$14.90, also 80 per cent off.

Dragonball FighterZ

Ever been a fan of Dragonball? Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have a 3 vs 3 fighting game with Dragonball characters throwing all their crazy energy beams at each other? This is the game to fulfil all your fantasies.

Dragonball FighterZ is a 3 vs 3 fighting game that is very similar to Marvel vs Capcom 3, just utilising the beloved Dragonball franchise. 

The game also has an all-original story (so you don’t need to go through the original Dragonball Z story for yet another time), and also introduces a new character named Android 21.

This game caters to fans and fighting game enthusiasts alike, with fun gameplay, great visuals, and also a very varied roster of cast members.

The base game is going for 85 per cent off right now, retailing at S$10.48, and if you want to purchase the season passes (3 in total) to get more characters, you can also do so. The season passes are not exactly that cheap compared to the base game, but at least they're optional.
