Steam sales enable PC players to pick up a variety of games for a fraction of their original price, so here’s when the next Steam sale starts. 

Steam offers plenty of discounts to its library of digital games throughout the year, but some of the biggest savings can be found during Steam sales. Not only do these eagerly-awaited events offer huge discounts on popular titles like CoD and Battlefield, but there are also reductions across thousands of other titles. 

This makes the Steam sale a great starting point for any PC players looking to add even more games to their ever-growing backlogs. Whether you’re aiming to save money on the latest AAA title or just wish to purchase a gift for a friend, then you’ll want to use the next Steam sale to get the best deals.
