Steam’s Autumn Sale is now live, Steam Awards system also introduced
Yup, it’s that time of the year again ladies and gentlemen *unzips wallet.
Steam’s Autumn 2016 sale is now live and once again, gamers can now hoard discounted titles that will be added to their backlogs as discounts of up to 70% in original prices for digital copies are being implemented on over 12,000 titles.
While the Steam sale is a regular event for the Valve owned digital distribution platform, what’s new for this season is the introduction of the Steam Awards, which lets Steam users nominate some of the quirkiest recognitions for their beloved video game titles on Steam with award titles such as the “Test of Time Award”, the “I thought this game was cool before it won an Award” award and the “Game within a game Award”.
