The end of the 2019 Steam Summer Sale is upon us and there are a ton of deals that you can still get your hands on, if you act fast. 

The annual Steam Summer Sale is drawing to a close as Valve have given fans two weeks of discounts on some of the most popular games around. Valve does hold a number of limited time ‘flash’ sales that will see some titles drop down to a ridiculously cheap price, but blink and you’ll miss them.

However, even if you do miss these, the majority of releases are still reduced for the whole event so you can grab a sweet bargain right before the end. You might not know what you’re looking for just yet, but here’s a few of the best deals still left in the Steam Summer Sale.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Despite releasing back in 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has remained one of the most popular single-player games around thanks to its breathtaking backdrop and gripping storyline.

The last release from CD Projekt Red is currently on sale at £7.49 – a 70% discount on the usual asking price. It might be the perfect game to tide you over until Cyberpunk 2077, which comes out on April 16, 2020. Trust us, it could really take that long to finish.

Portal 2 

Valve’s last single-player title is on sale at a rock-bottom price of £0.71 – as the developers have cut 90% off the price during the summer event.

While it may not be as graphically brilliant as some other triple-A titles, the challenging Portal 2 is a can’t miss deal at its current price.

Grand Theft Auto V

Considering it has sold over 110 million copies over a wide variety of platforms, you’ve probably seen or played Grand Theft Auto V. However, if you haven’t, it’s currently on offer for £12.49 in the Steam summer sale. 

The game may be nearly five years old, but it’s still massively popular thanks to regular multiplayer updates. An added bonus of having a PC copy means you are able to tweak the game with mods – so you can even jump aboard the GTA RP hype if you so wish

If you’re considering diving right into the online portion of the game and have an extra bit of cash lying around, the Online Premium Edition is on sale for £17.18 – giving you access to a ton of additional multiplayer-only content.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

In what might be the biggest saving of the whole event, Gearbox Software’s Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is reduced from £181.98 to £4.73 Yes, a 97% saving on Borderlands 2, Borderlands: The Pre-sequel, and every piece of additional content for Borderlands  2.

With Borderlands 3 set to launch on September 13, following the game’s story from the previous point might not be a bad idea at all. You just better have the hard drive space and internet speeds to get it all downloaded in time.

Other deals

Outside of the some of the best deals, there are plenty of other games still for a sale at ridiculous discounted prices. Here is a list of the best of the rest:

  • Rainbow Six Siege – £8.49 – 50% off
  • Friday The 13th – £3.09 – 80% off
  • Football Manager 2019 – £12.91 – 66% off

  • The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim – £14.99 – 50% off
  • Sniper Elite 4 – £7.99 – 80% off
  • Cities: Skylines – £5.79 – 75% off

The Steam Summer sale will end on July 9, so you’ll have to race out to get your hands on these bargains, as well as anything else you think you can handle. 

If you’re going to hold off, you’ll just have to hope that the next Steam sale brings the discounts you want, but we can’t promise anything.
