Not a month after their last sale, Steam is back with the Autumn Sale, furthering showing us we’re officially deep into the holidays stage of the year – where from Halloween all the way to Easter, we’ll be getting all kinds of sales and limited time events in games.
Alongside all the great deals, this also marks the beginning of the nomination stage for the Steam Awards, so if you’ve been an active gamer this past year, head over to their nominations page and cast your votes!
Without further ado, let’s get to the Steam Autumn Sale. We’ve handpicked a select few games we feel are both worth playing and are also discounted quite generously in relation to the quality of content they deliver.
As usual, we will have links to the games as well as their price and discount information at the bottom of the post. Prices may vary depending on your region.
Red Dead Redemption II
At this point, it’s hard to find anyone who hasn’t heard of the RDR franchise, or how RDR2 is an amazing second entry to the franchise. The action-adventure Western shooter has you playing outlaw Arthur Morgan as he gets to the usual business cowboy gangs in 1899 were up to – killing a bunch of people. The game is a prequel to the first RDR.
If you’ve somehow missed RDR2 entirely, it may bolster your confidence in buying it to know that it boasts some truly outstanding accolades:
- Has shipped over 46 million copies.
- Had the second-biggest launch in the history of entertainment
- It had the biggest opening weekend in entertainment history until the recent Modern Warfare II broke that record.
- It has won numerous awards, including several Game of the Year trophies.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
There’s never going to be a list of game deals that doesn’t include The Master Chief Collection when it is on sale. Six games bundled into one client, all engineered to seamlessly run together, including queuing for several of the games’ multiplayer at once, hopping from one campaign to another on a mission-to-mission basis and so, so much more.
The collection includes the first four mainline Halo games, as well as ODST and Reach. In addition to what each game shipped with when they initially were released, 343 has added an astonishing amount of extra content, and the game is still receiving support in the form of new features and cosmetics on a semi-regular basis (the studio’s main focus is, understandably, Halo Infinite). If you’ve played some Halo in the past and wonder what could surprise you inside the definitive collection of legacy Halo, here’s something to wet your apetite:
- Hundreds of new gear pieces, weapon & vehicle skins and nameplates to unlock.
- Victory poses, a recently introduced cosmetic effect that sets your spartan up in a cool position if you make it to the top 3 at the end of a multiplayer match.
- The ability to bring your cosmetics with you in most campaigns.
- ODST Firefight, but fighting Flood and Sentinels!
- A weekly rotation of fun, off-beat modes like Griffball, VIP Race and Fiesta.
- 700 achievements to unlock. Seriously, if you’re into hunting achievements, this is the ultimate offering both in terms of number as well as fun & difficulty
When it comes to DOOM, there’s never enough bloodshed to satisfy its fans, which is why they’re still making the games! For a franchise whose entire premise is “demon bad, kill demon again and again”, it has perfected its core drive. You don’t play DOOM for the story; you don’t play it for the achievements; you play it for the amazing, polished gameplay and the music. It’s the ultimate power trip fantasy that a shooter can deliver.
You needn’t fear the demons, for the demons fear you.
