Steam Summer Sale 2021's Best Deals | Screen Rant

Steam Summer Sale 2021 is officially underway, offering price cuts on thousands of games in the platform's library. Running June 24 - July 8, titles for sale are up to 85 percent off for indie and AAA games alike. While Steam hosts a sale event four times a year, its Summer Sale is largely understood to be the best and biggest of them all. Several of the titles from larger studios seem to be more substantial for the Steam Summer Sale this year, likely enticing players to buy into franchises before a new release.

Indie games are a major part of the sale as well. The sale comes two days after the end of Steam Next Fest, a six-day event highlighting over 700 indie games on the platform. Not many of the indie titles featured in Steam Next Fest are available for purchase during the Steam Summer Sale 2021, as they were demos and not ready for release. However, indie titles make up the bulk of titles available in the sale event.

Steam introduced Forge Your Fate, a series of short stories designed to help prospective buyers navigate through games for sale in each genre. Players click on a game genre, such as adventure, roguelike, or racing, and are taken to a home page with all titles on sale in that category. Once there, there is the option to either browse games or read a short story. The small paragraphs detail a scenario, and players decide what action to take next. Based on what path they choose, they then receive a sticker for their Steam profile. It's a fun way to explore all Steam games for sale in a hunt for the best deals.

Cyberpunk 2077 is 40% off. Though the game was riddled with bugs and glitches at release, many of them have been resolved through multiple patch updates. Now $40, the game should be worth every penny. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is 50% off, whittling the overall cost down to $19.99. The collection includes six Halo titles: Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST Campaign and Halo 4.

Far Cry 5 is on sale for $8.99, an 85% reduction in cost. Other Far Cry titles are on sale as well, likely hoping to entice players to purchase the games before the launch of Far Cry 6Battlefield 5: Definitive Edition is 75% off, bringing the cost down to $12.49. Even Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is discounted on Steam, knocking its overall price down to $49.79.

Indie titles for sale are too many to list, but some well-known titles are offering price cuts. Hades, the indie titan from developer Supergiant Games, is 30% off; Valheim, the breakout Norse survival game that's still in early access, is 10% off, bringing the cost down to $17.99. In a similar genre, Rust is now $19.99, a 50% reduction. Among Us is on sale ahead of its release on Xbox, bringing the PC cost of the game down to $3.99.
