Get Your Wallets Ready; PayPal Reveals Starting Date for Steam Summer Sale

on June 16, 2016 11:23 AM

While the summer tends to be more of a dryspell for new game releases, one of the biggest traditions to keep gamers busy during the warmer months of the year is the annual Steam Summer Sale, with this year’s sale seemingly upon us in just one week’s time.

A tweet from PayPal UK confirmed that the Steam Summer Sale for this year will begin on June 23rd, 2016, with the sale being infamously known for its dangerously low prices on games, as well as its adverse effect on gamers’ wallets.

Previous Steam Summer Sales followed a format of having daily deals and community discounts where users can vote on the next block of games to be discounted, along with a usual “meta-game” that ties in to the sale throughout its duration, though Valve have played around with the format a bit in years’ past.

The Steam Summer Sale 2016 will begin on June 23rd – you have until then to get your bank accounts balanced accordingly.
