On the occasion of the Chinese New Year on January 25, Steam started the “Lunar Sale” – and attracts customers until January 27, 7 p.m., with big discounts.
“We’re celebrating the Year of the Rat,” Valve welcomes users to his distribution platform. To live up to the motto, the operator has put together a few exotic and first-class games with rodents – including “Moss”, the VR fairy tale with the mouse, the medieval plague drama “A Plague Tale” and the – sorry – rat-sharp adventure “Ghost of a Tale”. They are all offered at a discount of 50 percent or more.
“Resident Evil 2” and “Assasin’s Creed: Odyssey” on Steam
For most Steam users, however, the other offers are likely to be significantly more exciting. For example, the fabulous remake of the horror survival classic “Resident Evil 2” is currently available for around 20 euros, the ancient action-adventure epic “Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” for 24 euros.
Also tempting is the “Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice”, which has been overwhelmed with prizes, for a good 10 euros, which, together with the protagonist, causes players to go crazy.
Whether “Star Wars: Jedi – Fallen Order” for 48 euros is a bargain can be doubted. Pure desperation awaits in the rock-hard samurai adventure “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice”, which was named “Game of the Year” at the “Video Game Awards” for 39 euros.
Bargains on Steam: mass battles and more
Strategists are happy about the “Definitive Edition” of the classic “Age of Empires 2” for around 15 euros – or conquer ancient China in spectacular real-time mass battles in the now “45 euros” Total War: Three Kingdoms.
It is much more peaceful in the zoo manager “Planet Zoo” (around 39 euros), even without a prescription there is the funny hospital simulation “Two Point Hospital” for 12 euros.
You can find a complete overview of all offers here in the Steam Store.
There are also small gifts: At the start there are 100 brands with which new steam chat effects, stickers and backgrounds can be bought at least at a discount. But probably no pig needs it at the end of the same year.
