SteamDB, the incredible bit of software available through the web browser to track everything from sale dates to general steam usage data has put up three new sale dates for Steam’s biggest sales of the year:

The Steam Halloween Sale will be from the 28th of October to the 1st of November, while the Autumn Sale 2021 will be between the 24th of November and the 30th of November.

The massive year-end sale, The Winter Sale, is supposedly taking place between the 22nd of December and the 5th of January. So it’s time to start adding things to your wishlist to fill your stockings within just 128 days.

The next major sale is the Digital Tabletop Fest 2021, which will be happening between the 21st and 25th of October, while Next Fest is the 1st to the 7th, but focuses on upcoming games and might follow an earlier fest this June that brought tonnes of demos to the platform to try.

Steam Sales are fantastic, with publishers slashing prices across the board and if you’re one of those who have preordered a Steam Deck, you’ll be able to stock up on some cracking games before you get your device!

You might also need an SD card to go with that, so have a look at our guide!

Meanwhile, if you’re not already subscribed to Game Pass and prefer to own your games outright, Microsoft Flight Simulator should see a price drop during each sale, as Microsoft makes their renewed push into PC gaming just that little bit hotter.
