Let’s be real for a second here – Not all of us will be at the beach, pool parties, or going on mega luxe vacations this summer. Some of us have a a much different idea of what to look forward to this season, like hours in the air conditioning, at our PC, conquering level after level of our favorite video games. For those of you who agree with me that sounds like a great time, the rumors are getting louder and louder that the Steam Summer Sale will take place from June 22, 2017 – July 5, 2017.
Not that I’ve spent hours scouring the internet for any and all leaked information, but if I had…… the Steam Summer Sale is super top secret! Which left me two options – making my perfect playlist for while I game, or go over the top 5 PC games I am hoping are on the Steam summer sale!
1) Friday the 13th – The Game: I know not everyone is a horror movie fan, but I definitely am, and the idea to play as Jason in this brutal game is amazing. Also, the novelty is not lost on me that while some are headed off to summer camp, you could be Jason at Camp Crystal Lake. This game is not for anyone under 17, as I’ve said it’s brutal, but if you’re a horror movie fan like myself, this has to be at the top of the list. Regularly $39.99 on Steam and worth it. Who doesn’t hope for a great deal during the Steam Summer Sale?
2) The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind: We’re all familiar with Elder Scrolls, but this is an amazing expansion with a new characters, quests, and abilities, fighting to save Morrowind from a Daedric threat. Not a regular in this series? That’s okay. You can start with the Morrowind tutorial, and not have to worry about being behind. Fresh for the summer, it just came out on May 22, 2017, but looks absolutely AMAZING! While this will regularly run you $59.99, I am hopeful this is included in the Steam Summer Sale.
3) DiRT 4: To me, warm weather screams fast cars and dirt roads, so this seems like a natural fit. This game is boasting “Over 50 of the most breath-taking off-road cars ever built” and I personally look forward to testing each and every one of them out to find my favorite! This looks to be just what is needed for that adrenaline rush without having to leave the comfort (and hopefully climate control) of your gaming station. This was just released at $59.99, so a sale or deal would never hurt on this.
4) Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombie Chronicles: So this expansion technically isn’t even out yet (it comes out on June 15th, 2017) but it will be out by the time of the sale. I am a fan of the franchise as a whole, but then you add in all the bonus content coming with this, and is there any question? I need this. The visuals knock this out of the park and trailer look unreal! Even if this doesn’t make the Steam Summer Sale, at $29.99 I might just need this to beat the heat!
5) Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 2: In theme with Summer blockbusters, Guardians of the Galaxy being awesome in general, or me being slightly obsessed with everything Telltale does, I need this in my life! The characters already have stolen my heart, and I can’t wait to see what Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax, and Star-Lord can find their way into this time. Telltale is great at making you feel like part of the game, and this is guaranteed to have some awesome music all along the journey. Steam has put this on sale several times since it’s April 18th, 2017 release date, but I’m hoping to see some big markdowns.
If you plan to beat the heat slashing it up at Camp Crystal Lake, fighting monsters in a fantasy land, revving it up off road, showing Zombies who is boss, or on a journey through the galaxy with an amazing soundtrack, hopefully the Steam Summer Sale brings you all you want and more at a discounted price.
