The Steam Summer sale has arrived. Tons of cheap games to power your PC gaming portfolio, with some of the biggest 2020 titles included. You see, there is good news in 2020. It’s weird.
This year’s Steam summer offer introduces a new points store that will remain even after the sale ends. Players earn 100 points for every dollar spent on Steam, and they can exchange those points for seasonal treats and game-specific stickers, profile backgrounds, etc. You can check the points store, which will be permanent, here. You can get a free sticker just for showing up.
But we are not here to talk about Points, we are here to talk about some of the best PC game deals you can get during the Steam 2020 Summer Offer. For the purposes of this list, we will only see games that have at least 50 % off. There are many games with lower discounts that are worth your time and money, but I rate “very cheap” as half a discount or more. It’s arbitrary, but it seems fair enough to me.
So without more goodbye. . .
13 Dirt Cheap Games – Steam Summer Sale 2020
1. Borderlands 3 costs $ 29.99 (50% discount)
One of the biggest games of the year. Borderlands 3 It started life as an Epic Game Store exclusive. Now you have a 50% discount on Steam. If you enjoy colorful and quirky characters in a space opera setting with all kinds of weapons to find and sweet loot to collect, this is for you.
2. Total War Warhammer II is $ 20.39 (66% off)
Total War: Warhammer II combines the game strategy of the Total war series with the rich and dark world of Warhammer. Lead vast armies of Skavens, Orcs, and Elves in epic battles of conquest and magic. It’s a lot of fun and a great starting point for newcomers. Also: Cheap dirt at only twenty dollars.
3. A Plague Tale Innocence is $ 15.29 (66% off)
Set in a fictional medieval France, A plague tale: innocence is the story of two brothers trying to survive a fearsome Inquisition and an even more terrifying and mysterious plague of rats. It’s beautiful, tense, and completely unlike anything I’ve ever played, with a nice mix of history, stealth, and puzzles.
4. Pathalogic 2 costs $ 14.69 (58% discount)
With Plague story, the creepy open world horror RPG Pathalogic 2 It may be the game for our times inflicted by COVID-19. You’ll fight a deadly outbreak in an isolated rural town filled with weird characters in masks as you choose who to save and how to do it. Difficult choices, autopsies, atmospheric and a little awkward. Definitely get it very cheap.
5. Valkyria Chronicles 4 costs $ 16.99 (66% off)
And now for something completely different. Valkyria Chronicles 4 it’s part of JRPG, fantasy part of WWII history and part of tank-based turn-based strategy goodness. Lead your tank squad into battle, follow the engaging storyline and funny characters, and outwit your enemies. He is charming. If you like strategy, role-playing games, steampunk, etc., etc., etc. buy this game.
6. Doom Eternal costs $ 29.99 (50% off)
If you enjoyed the above CONDEMN, or you just enjoy killing demons in the most brutal and bloody way possible, DOOM Eternal It is a mandatory game. I’m not sure I like it as much as CONDEMN 2016 but it’s very similar and fans of one will probably be fans of the other. Exaggerated weapons, exaggerated crowds, some good old-fashioned ultraviolence. What could not be loved?
7. Titanfall 2 costs $ 9.89 (67% off)
I really adore Titanfall 2. Both its excellent campaign (which is really cool) and its phenomenal multiplayer make this one of my favorite first-person shooters of this generation. EA only recently added it (and other games) to Steam, so this is a great opportunity for the game to be very cheap and give it a try. Between mechanical combat, wall running and other movement skills, and excellent shooting, this is an FPS that everyone should be playing, and which very few people ended up buying. (PS: It has a perfect Steam user score, overwhelmingly positive, for a reason.)
8. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order costs $ 29.99 (50% off)
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is another Respawn game and combines some of Titanfall 2’s Movement mechanics, like running on the wall, with combat and level design “like souls”. Then it is Star Wars Satisfies Fall of the Titan Satisfies Dark souls, which is a strange but surprisingly good combination. Really loved Fallen order, and consider it the best “Souls” game not created by FromSoftware. Climb the difficulty and have fun with your lightsaber in truly beautiful worlds. The story is not bad either.
9. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard costs $ 9.89 (67% off)
This creepy FPS horror game is definitely worth playing before Resident Evil 8 comes out. I really enjoyed it when it launched a few years ago (playable via VR as well, but I got too claustrophobic …). Creepy swamp people who are practically impossible to kill in a dark and disgusting house and on land full of mystery and terror? All that and more can be yours for less than ten dollars.
10. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey costs $ 19.79 (67% off)
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey It’s basically the game where Ubisoft became Bethesda, transforming the franchise into a full RPG with mythical / fantasy elements in full screen. Definitely not your traditional Assassin’s Creed gameplay, but it’s also pretty fun in its own right and has tons to explore, engaging narrative, and combat that radically distances itself from previous games. It’s under $ 20 during the Steam Summer offer, which is a great deal.
11. Dark Souls III costs $ 14.99 (75% off)
As readers may know, I am a great admirer of Dark souls games as well Bloodborne and Sekiro and Demon souls and probably also from Elden Ring every time that game comes out. Dark Souls III it’s actually a good place to start with this series if you don’t want to go in chronological order (which is not entirely necessary). It is just a little bit more accessible / modern than its predecessors. It’s also very cheap during the Steam sale, though I recommend buying the Deluxe Edition for $ 21.24 as it comes with the must-have downloadable content. Simply some of the best combat designs and levels you can find in games, Dark Souls III is an action RPG that will challenge and delight you at every turn. Buy it.
12. Divinity Original Sin 2 – Final Edition is $ 22.49 (50% off)
A very different type of role-playing game, Original Divinity Sin 2 Combine turn-based strategy with nifty writing and lots of clever twists. Unique powers and abilities, classes and skills, and a unique role-playing system make this one of the most interesting PC role-playing games I’ve played in years. Larian is the developer behind the next Baldur III Gate Also, so if that piques your interest, try this game.
13. No Man’s Sky costs $ 29.99 (50% off)
Much has changed with No Man’s Sky since its unfortunate release as a scheduled PS4 exclusive the game is almost unrecognizable now, which is a good thing! Hello Games has updated the space exploration title over and over with new content, a full multiplayer, and tons more. There is no way to over-emphasize how much this game has improved. There has never been a better time to buy it, especially on Steam.
And that is all friends. Of course, there are plenty more games to watch during the Steam 2020 Summer Sale. I’ll try to put together some good ones for other lists. In the meantime, check out the sale here. It runs until July 9.
