The PC gaming storefront regularly has summer and Christmas sales, though other festive occasions sometimes see a terrifying assault on players’ finances. The current campaign is, appropriately enough, largely focused on horror-themed games but there are some more mainstream treats for the faint of heart.
Thematically themed horror and fantasy highlights include The Witcher III: Wild Hunt getting 30 percent lopped off its price, bringing it down to £34.99; open-world zombie survival game Dying Light gets £20 sliced off, bringing it down to £19.99; and BioShock Infinite is at 75 percent off, now only £4.99.
Rebellion’s brilliantly gory sniping schlock-fest Zombie Army Trilogy, which now includes all eight characters from Valve’s Left 4 Dead games as playable extras, is barely more than a tenner now, at only £10.19. Both Left 4 Dead and its sequel can be had for a mere £2.99 each too, should you need to familiarise yourself with who they are.
Aside from horror, Grand Theft Auto V is 33 percent off, down to £26.79; hilariously over-the-top ’80s action movie-inspired run-and-gun shooter Broforce is also down by a third, at £8.03; city building sim Cities Skylines is 50 percent off, down to £11.49; and crowdfunded RPG hit Pillars of Eternity is also half off, at £17.49.
The Steam Halloween Sale is a short one though — it only runs until 6pm UK time on 2 November. Best to get your gaming tricks and treats in soon.
