How many great Steam deals are there per year?

Let's start with the basics, which is none other than detailing how many great Steam deals there are throughout the year. In total, it has been common to see 7 great Steam offers, from the celebration in January of the Lunar New Year to say goodbye with the typical Christmas offers, although, yes, during the last two years the spring offers were absent from the equation and they have ended up being replaced by other minor events that also reduce a good number of titles. Next, you have a list to see all the great offers and, if you click on them, you will go directly to their specific section in this report.


Steam Christmas or Winter Deals 2021 - Confirmed: Dec 22 - Jan 5, 2022

The last great Steam offers of the year are the Christmas holidays, also known as the winter ones, with a duration of two weeks that make them the longest along with the summer offers. The Christmas specials usually start on the penultimate Thursday of each year, covering Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and New Year to say goodbye shortly after the arrival of the following year. On this occasion, the offers will begin two days before Christmas Eve and will end on the eve of Three Kings Day, January 5, 2022, an ideal date to request the last games from the Three Kings.

Lunar New Year Sale 2022 (Jan 27-Feb 3?)

It has not yet been officially confirmed, but the leaks suggest that the usual Lunar New Year offers will take place on Steam from January 27 to February 3, thus becoming the first sales of 2022 proper (the previous ones still correspond to 2021, technically speaking). It is customary for this promotion to start before the Chinese holiday and fit just so that it ends after its celebration, so considering that the Chinese New Year is on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, it makes sense that the offers are established around this week. Of course, as we said, nothing has been officially confirmed yet.

Steam Next Fest, February 2022 Edition - Confirmed: February 21-28)

Steam has taken a liking to organize a Next Fest (what we used to know as Steam Game Festival) every four months and the next one is in February 2022. Specifically, the company has already announced that it will begin on February 21 at 19: 00h (Spanish peninsular time) and that will end a week later, on February 28, at the same time. During those days we will not only be able to test hundreds of demos and watch broadcasts with mostly independent game creators, but also offers will be activated in titles of all kinds, so it will be necessary to pay attention.

Remote Play Together Event, Golden Week Sale 2022, Open World Sale ... Will there be this year?

After the accumulation of offers that are formed in Steam at the beginning of the year, it may seem that a sale vacuum is generated in Valve's platform, but the truth is that the company surprised last year with several events that kept us busy during those months until the arrival of summer: first, he organized a festival called Remote Play Together at the end of March focused on cooperative games that not only encouraged us to play with friends but also offered discounts on these titles; later the Golden Week Sale was held from April to May to honor Japanese video games with discounts on their main franchises and we even had discounts on specific genres such as the Open World Sale at the end of May, which downgraded open world projects.


It is still too early to know whether or not these sales will have a place in Steam's planning for 2022, but considering the good reception, they experienced in their 2021 editions it would be strange not to see some of these festivals return for this year.

Steam Next Fest Summer Edition: June 15?

As we said before, the Steam Next Fest is celebrated religiously every four months, so after the February edition comes the June one. They usually start on a Wednesday and last four days, to also take the weekend, so guessing we can hope that the summer edition of 2022 of this festival of demos will begin on June 15 or even the following week, on Wednesday, June 22. June. It is still too early to be sure, but the date of this event, with its corresponding offers, has to fall around those dates.


Steam 2022 Summer Sale

Traditionally the most relevant Steam sales have been the summer ones, and if we let ourselves be carried away by last year's organization, it is most likely that they will start right after June's Steam Next Fest. This means that we could see these offers around June 24, which is when they usually start, and they will last for a couple of weeks.

Steam Next Fest Autumn Edition 2022

In the fall, sometime in October, it will be time to welcome a new Next Fest on Steam, a festival with demos of independent projects and discounts on all kinds of PC video games. Last year it was celebrated during the first week of the month, from October 1 to 7, especially so as not to coincide with the strong sales periods that come after (Halloween, autumn sales, Black Friday ...). The logical thing is to expect that in 2022 the first weekend of October will also take place, although as this year the month begins on Saturday, we may have to wait until the following weekend, that of Friday, October 7.

Halloween Steam Deals 2022

This year the Steam Halloween Sales have been celebrated coinciding precisely with Halloween, that is, from October 28 to November 1. It is expected that in 2022 that combination will also be sought, especially considering that October 28 falls this year on Friday and we would have the entire weekend to take advantage of the offers.

Black Friday - Fall 2022 Steam Deals

This is perhaps the easiest period to try to guess - Steam's fall sales typically start coinciding with Black Friday, which is always the last Friday in November. Looking at the calendar, it is clear that the Steam autumn sales of 2022 would start on Friday, November 25, but we have to wait for Valve to confirm when exactly they will be activated. Its duration is usually a week, so we will have time to get ourselves with cheap PC games.


The gamer lives not only on great offers ... and Steam

In addition to the great Steam offers, the Valve store and PC players not only live off these promotions but also have different sales throughout the year. In fact, it is not uncommon to see specific promotional campaigns from certain video game publishers from time to time, as well as weekends with the possibility of playing certain titles for free and getting a discount if we want to buy them after trying them over the weekend. To this, we can also add other thematic offers dedicated to different genres, without going any further in 2021 Steam dedicated special offers board games, open world, cooperatives ...


In addition, every day Steam has a couple of daily offers on selected games, as well as different weekly (and weekend) offers that we can find in a section called Special Offers on the main page of the store, just below the carousel The main one in which we are shown the new releases or the recommended products for each player.
