The Steam Winter Sale 2016 is about to start and players and software addicts all over the world are excited!
PayPal UK took to Twitter the announcement on the start date of the Steam Winter Sale 2016. The sale will begin on December 22, 2016, Thursday.
On 2015, the Steam Winter Sale gave away discounts on thousands of games and software. There were also Winter Sale-themed trading cards available which are exclusive during the period of sale.
What to Expect
Techno Buffalo alleges that the sale starts at the same time of day given a few minutes after the sale has officially set in. The sale will most probably begin at 1 p.m. ET.
PayPal UK still has not given any announcements regarding until when the sale will run through. But speculations arise, which state that it will last until January 2 of next year. That is almost a 2-week mark.
However, there has been no announcement yet as to the specific huge offers on sale. Neither is there an announcement on the games and softwares that will be sold on the period of the sale. Any other details have not been released as well.
Other News about Steam
In other news, data from SteamSpy shows that 38 percent of all Steam games that have been released from the beginning were released in 2016.
The reasons for the increase are various. One reason for this increase would be because Steam had once again regained control over the games being submitted to them. This decreased the amount of work that the staff would have to put up with in keeping up with the number of games that is being created every year. The increased accessibility to the games would be another reason. Game developers are allowed to make and release more games. This was according to Game Spot.
This only means that since a lot of games have been released this year, then more games will also be released and sold in a discounted price in the Steam Winter Sale 2016!
There are a few more days in order to get ready and prepare our money and bank accounts for this cheap and exciting sale. Perfect for Christmas!
