Black Friday On Steam: Autumn Sale 2022 | Start date &…
November 25, 2022
It’s that time of year again, time to buy piles of PC games that you’ll never play. Yep, it’s another Steam sale! Here’s the date and time it begins and a few of the best deals available. Enjoy!
We all know that Steam sales are a bargain and a waste at the same time. The games are so damn cheap that you end up buying more than you could ever play. But who doesn’t love a good deal?
This time it’s the Autumn Steam Sale, and you can expect a large number of games, from all different genres, to be heavily discounted. You can find all the information you need about the Autumn Steam Sale below.
Unfortunately, Hogwarts Legacy pre-orders won’t be in the Steam sale, but you can buy it here, my fellow Harry Potter geeks: Hogwarts Legacy
Steam Autumn Sale: Start Time
The Fall Steam Sale begins on Tuesday, November 22nd at 10:00 a.m. PT (1:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. GMT / 7:00 p.m. CET) and will last for exactly one week until November 29. This is actually Steam’s very own Black Friday, except it lasts a week. Hopefully you are already done game of the yearand you are ready for something new.
Maybe one day some of these puppies will make it into a Steam sale?
Top 10 deals in the Steam Fall Sale
Let’s get to the most important part of the sale: What games are on offer and how heavily will they be discounted? Here are just a few of the titles we’ve heard about so far, in no particular order:
Portal 2 (-90% / $0.99)
With overwhelmingly positive reviews and a massive promotion, it would almost be silly not to pick up Portal 2. Also…it’s literally $1. There are very few things that can still be bought so cheaply.
Wandering (-20% / $23.99)
You can check our review of Stray here. This is a solid deal for those who want a cozy single-player game that walks around like a cat. It’s not the biggest saving at only -20%, but it’s not that expensive to begin with.
Age of Empires IV: Anniversary Edition (-33% / $26.79)
Age of Empires IV is the kind of game you can spend hundreds of hours on. While it doesn’t reach the heights of the other game, it’s still a very fun title worth $27, especially considering this is the Anniversary Edition.
Red Dead Redemption 2 (-67% / $19.79)
You don’t need us to explain what Red Dead Redemption is. But we would strongly encourage anyone who hasn’t played yet to check it out. Even if you’re not into cowboys, this world is beautiful enough for everyone to enjoy.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (-90% / $3.99)
If you are a fan of the Desparados series or you were a fan of the old Robin Hood: Legend of Sherwood game, buy this right now. Seriously, Shadow Tactics is one of the best stealth tactics ever made, and it’s an absolute bargain for $4.
Unravel (-90% / $1.99)
This is a very sweet platformer, and it’s now available at an all-time low price. Sure, it won’t be a game you can keep playing for hundreds of hours, but it will give you a few afternoons of fun. And it has to be worth it for $2.
Fallout: New Vegas (-75% / $2.49)
Okay, maybe we look cheap for including so many games under $5, but times are tough, and when games are this cheap, you can take a chance on them without fear of buyer’s remorse. But don’t worry, you won’t regret getting Fallout: New Vegas, which remains one of the highest-rated games in the entire Steam database and may be the best in the series.
Cyberpunk 2077 (-50% / $29.99)
Okay, this one is going to be super controversial. Some people would argue that this isn’t even worth $30. But, and this is a big but, if you like dystopian sci-fi, then Cyberpunk 2077, for all its faults, is probably the best version of that fantasy you can find. And CDPR is committed to improving it, so you can think of this as more of an investment.
Ax: Shadows Die Twice (-50% / $29.99)
And this is our much less controversial $30 suggestion. Sekiro is widely regarded as a great game that was developed with care. There really aren’t any major negatives we can say for this one, it still holds up as a great game and well worth your time.
Hades (-40% / $14.99)
We end on a high point: Hades. This is a hugely popular game and it is considered to be one of the best roguelike dungeon crawlers made in the last ten years. In fact, it’s probably one of the best roguelike dungeon crawlers ever.
And there you have it folks, everything you need to know to enjoy the Fall Stream Sale. Oh, and if you still need a Steam Deck to actually play some of these games, we have you.
