Steam Winter Sale

Valve officially launched the 12th annual Steam Winter Sale and like always, some great titles are available at big discounts. This time we decided to pick the best deals from snow-themed games to set you in a proper holiday mood.

A nice cosy winter house with warm glowing windows will be your first sight after you launch Steam today and it's signalling the start of 12th annual Steam Winter Sale as well as Steam Awards voting.

This year's theme is dubbed Extremely Cozy Cottage of Surprises and players will get to open doors every day and receive in-game and community items such as Steam avatars and emoticons from participating games, as well as consumable knick-knacks specific for the 2018 Steam Winter Sale.

Discounts are of course the big thing during every Steam Sale and like always we picked some bargains and must-buy titles from various genres. To make it more interesting and in line with a winter theme, we're only going to recommend games set in the snowy setting.

Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light Redux Bundle for $7.48 is a must-buy for everyone regardless of their favourite genre. These games will set you up nicely for the upcoming Metro Exodus which is, supposedly the last game in the series. 

For those who prefer city building simulations, Frostpunk is the obvious choice. It's one of the best game of its genre in the last couple of years and you can experience the cruel extreme conditions for only $20.09 which is 33 per cent off from the regular price.

There's no better way to prepare yourself for Ubisoft's The Division 2 than playing the original game. The Division's recreation of New York is probably the best one we've ever seen and it will set you in a proper holiday mood for $7.49. 

If you're a fan of survival games set in harsh conditions, The Long Dark is a game for you. It's currently 75 per cent off from the standard price and it can be yours for $7.49. The game received Redux update recently which includes new content as well as reworked first two episodes and ton of fixes and improvements.

We'll finish off with South Park The Stick of Truth and The Fractured but Whole Bundle which is available for $20.23 which is crazy 78 per cent off from the regular $89.98 price.
