Good news, frugal gamers: the Steam Summer Sale 2022 is now live. It runs between now and July 7 at 10 am PT, and you can find the whole thing here. As usual for this massive annual event, you can save a whole bunch of money on a mountain of PC games. My entire wishlist is on sale. Capcom games are on sale. The Final Fantasy series is on sale. Halo is on sale, and so is Hitman. There’s a lot to dig into, so let’s start digging.
Steam Summer Sale 2022 Highlights
Steam is calling this year’s event the “Steam 3000 Summer Sale.” The idea is — and bear with me here — a time-traveling trickster from the future named Clortax has come back to our era with the “10 best games from the far future.” Throughout the course of the sale, Clortax will drop clues about the games for you to collect. You can earn badges and get rewards, and the whole deal; go here to get started.
Whether you’re into big new AAA games or beloved classics, you’ll likely find something of interest on sale. And if not? You saved money by not spending any. That’s a win-win. And if you dabble in hybrid console gaming, check out the big Nintendo Switch game sale going on now.
