Summer is always a busy time for deals, and while huge sales from Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation have already ended, one of the season’s biggest gaming sales just launched. Every June, Steam users look forward to an absolute truckload of PC games going on sale as part of the platform’s annual Summer Sale, and the time has finally come: Steam Summer Sale 2020 is live now, as predicted by a developer at SteamDB back in May.
Steam Summer Sale 2020 dates and times
Steam Summer Sale 2020 kicked off today, June 25, and will run until July 9, ending at 10 PM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.
Steam Summer Sale theme and trading cards
While last year’s Steam Summer Sale had a unique Grand Prix theme, Steam Summer Sale 2020 looks to have a more generic summer road trip theme. While there’s no mini-game this year, you can earn Summer Sale trading cards. You’ll get one trading card for every $10 USD that you spend; plus, you’ll earn one card a day during the sale by completing your Discovery Queue. You can then craft those cards to gain levels for the Summer Road Trip Badge.
