Steam Summer Sale: 11 discounted PC games to buy now

After weeks of rumors, Steam’s Summer Sale is officially live. There are hundreds of discounted titles and an unusually high percentage of them are worth your time. This includes some games from two or three years ago that you may have missed, but also some AAA games from the last six months. 

Sift through the sale and you’ll surely find something you’ve been meaning to play. But if you haven’t got time to do that just this second, here are our picks of notable games that are discounted now. The Summer Sale will last until July 9. 

id Software/Bethesda

Doom Eternal was released just a few months ago, in March, which makes this 50% discount even sweeter. Eternal is a sequel to 2016’s Doom reboot, in which the series arguably became more gnarly than ever. There’s some decent platforming in Eternal, but it’s mostly about annihilating demons. You can get this stress relief for half price until July 9.

Rockstar Games

The discount to Rockstar’s latest blockbuster isn’t as big as other games on this list, but it’s rare that games of Red Dead Redemption 2’s caliber are discounted online at all. Take the 20% discount while you can.


Here’s another fresh AAA game on the list. Half-Life: Alyx is a VR game that takes place in between the first and second Half-Life titles. Not only is it arguably the best reason to own VR hardware right now, it’s also a fantastic game in its own right

Mobius Digital

Outer Wilds is an adventure/puzzle game that’s all about discovery. You’re on a faraway planet, with 22 minutes before the sun supernovas and destroys anything. Luckily, you’re stuck in a timeloop. In Outer Wilds, you’ll slowly figure out how to save the world — 22 minutes at a time. It sounds strange, but it was one of 2019’s most acclaimed games.

Team Ninja

Nioh isn’t one of this generation’s best-selling games, but it may be one of the best. A new franchise from Team Ninja, the gang that brought you Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden, it’s kind of like Dark Souls with samurais. The complete edition is $25 right now.


So, The Last of Us Part 2 is out and it’s incredible. But what if you’re after a horror experience and don’t have a PlayStation 4? Fret not, Resident Evil 2, a terrific remake of the 1998 PlayStation 1 game, is 50% off until July 9.

Take-Two Interactive Software

If you feel like getting lost in a strategy game, few come with a higher pedigree than Sid Meier’s Cililization franchise. It received predictably favorable reviews upon launch, and is a massive 75% off until July 9.


Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a rare type of game. It’s based on a hugely popular franchise, yet it’s also… really good. You really have to soak strong licensed games in when you can. One of late-2019’s biggest blockbusters, it’s $30 until July 9.

Matt Makes Games

If you’re after more indie fair, Celeste is famously difficult — and stirring. It was released in 2018, so you’ve probably already heard a lot about it. If this 2D platformer has been on your To Play list, now’s the time to strike it off. Celeste is 50% off until July 9.


Borderlands 3 is the fourth main game in the franchise (such a deceptive title) and one of 2019’s most hyped releases. It’s a colorful, stylish first-person shooter with a huuuuge array of weapons with which to blast intergalactic foes. It’s also $30 off until July 9.
