Valve Launches Lunar New Year Sale On Steam

Posted on February 5, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Valve has launched a brand new steam sale to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Each day until February 12th they’ll be featuring new deals on the front page of the store, reminder that all of the discounts stay the same throughout the sale as Flash Sales and Daily Deals no longer exist. So if you’re waiting for one of your most anticipated games to go on sale but are waiting until payday you have time.

New to the store for the Lunar Sale are “obstacles” – questions like “There is a massive body of water in your way what do you do?” appear on the page and If you select “swim” like I did then Steam will serve you a page of aquatic themed games. Sadly there aren’t any apparent trading cards tied to this new activity.

We will update this post with some of the better deals as we dig through the thousands of games that are on sale. Here are today’s featured deals:

  • Tomb Raider Franchise Up to 75% Off
  • Rust for 50% off
  • Older X-Com games for up to 80% off (doesn’t include X-Com 2)
  • Killing Floor 2 for $21.99 CDN
  • Counter Strike GO for $8.24 CDN
  • ARK: Survival Evolved for 33% off
