Steam Summer Sale and bonus adventure begins

Steam Summer Sale and bonus adventure begins

The Summer Sale this year is accompanied by the bonus summer adventure, a team game giving players a chance to win items on their wish lists.

The Steam Summer Sale kicked off last night, launching proceedings with deep discounts on a range of titles including Day Z, Dead Rising 3, Far Cry 3 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

For this round of wallet-assaulting bargains, the Steam Sale will include a ‘bonus summer adventure’, a mini-game giving Steam users a chance to win more trading cards and games entered on their wish lists. Users are grouped into one of five teams and after each day, the team with the most points will have a chance to win free games.

When one of the summer adventure teams wins, 30 members of that team who contributed points will win three games from their Steam wishlist and anyone else who contributed points for the day will get an additional two summer sale trading cards.

A series of 10 sale-specific Steam trading cards have also been introduced with incentives for collecting these including emoticons, profile backgrounds and in-game items for a range of free-to-play titles.

Like in previous sales, the main games on offer will be refreshed every 24 hours and Flash sales will change every eight. Steam community directed sales have also returned but unlike previous years, these allow users to vote for a set of four games that will go on sale as opposed to just one.

The Steam Summer Sale runs until June 30.

Sorry Steam, you're not for me anymore.

Whilst I still find Steam useful as a repository for most of my games, I rarely actually buy anything directly through their store any more.

I don't usually stoop as low as grey keys, but there are plenty of above-board key sites which charge a lot less than Steam themselves. Even during sales.

When you look at the price of console games difficult to complain about steam sales. My problem is I already have so many games from the last steam sales I haven't played yet I can't really justify getting any more.

New to this so any recommendations for 'above board' key sites? Cheers.

http://www.cdkeys.com and http://www.simplycdkeys.com are both legit as far as I'm aware :)

I use a variety of sites, and tend to shop around for a particular game. CheapShark has always been fairly reliable for me.

Yeah CDKeys.com are good, I've used them a few times. I have also used http://www.cjs-cdkeys.com/ for a year or two with no issues.

Im sure you click on the map thing that’s displayed on the store then click sign up and it does it for you. I did struggle as well..just bounced about some menus until i saw sign up.

I've grabbed 5 games for the sum of £8.18.

Not bad!
