Steam Halloween and Christmas sale dates have been confirmed by Valve. Prepare your wallets, the festivities begin tomorrow.
Like every year, Steam struggles to keep the dates of its next sales secret. Rather than leaving the field open to the leakers, Valve seems to have decided to take the lead, by chaining the official announcements. For the end of the year 2021, three sales periods should thus lighten the wallet of the players.
Tomorrow, Thursday, October 28, the festivities will begin with the Steam Halloween sales. These will last until November 1, so it will be necessary to be quick. However, they will be an opportunity to get your hands on some new features, as well as our selection of horror games perfect for celebrating the Day of the Dead. Note that during this short period, Valve plans to highlight games and thematic bonuses, without further details for the moment.
A few weeks later, Steam will celebrate fall on its online platform. Of November 24 to 30, the online store will offer a new salvo of sales. Finally in December, players will be able to do their last Christmas shopping or spend their gift cards received at the foot of the tree. Of December 22 to January 5, the firm should honor certain festive games, while ensuring some additional promotions.
Valve wants to fight fraudsters
It is recalled that these balances will now be accompanied by increased monitoring on the part of Valve on regional relocations. While many players used to change their geographic location to take advantage of much more attractive prices on certain games, the company announced several weeks ago its decision to strengthen checks on fraudsters. Thus, it is now only possible to change your location once every three months, otherwise your account will be blocked.
