Gone are the days when PC gamers only had Steam sales to save money on games. Now, there are multiple platforms offering substantial savings, including’s massive winter sale. This year, Steam’s Winter Sale runs from December 21 at 10:00 am Pacific Time (1:00 pm Eastern Time) to January 4, 2024, at the same times. Expected to feature thousands of discounted games, the sale also offers a unique daily sticker, which users can claim by visiting any category page on Steam during the event.

The Steam Awards are also a highlight of this period. Nominations, which were cast during the Autumn Sale, have led to the selection of five finalists in each category.
