Valve finally Apologies to its customer in March for the inconvenience. The last summer sale took place in early June running from June 11 to June 21.
Many game lovers do not buy Triple – A games immediately after their launch as they wait for steam sales hoping that they can get a deep discount during the sale.
Apart from providing discounts and freebies to the customer, Valve also offers a clicker game which player can use to earn Steam Trading card and unlock discounts for various other games. Whether or not this year’s sales also offers some twist like this, remains to be seen.
