I'll be the first to admit that we're a bit late on this news as the sale started Monday, but the Steam Strategy Fest is up and has some awesome deals on strategy game classics. As a fan of Warcraft and Halo Wars, it's very nice to see this oft forgotten genre of game get some love. So, for your discerning pleasure, we'll highlight the deals that stick out to us as great deals.
Civilization VI Anthology: ($
209.65 $24.93) Steam Deck Playable
X-COM Enemy Unknown Complete Pack: ($
49.99 $9.99) Steam Deck Playable
X-COM 2 Collection: ($

Phoenix Point: ($

Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: ($1
9.99 $4.99) Steam Deck Playable
If you can only choose one, I'd highly recommend Civilization VI Anthology. Because $209 worth of content for $25 is an amazing deal but the other tiers, Base and Platinum, are great deals as well. Runner up goes to the X-COM 2 Collection with $132 worth of content for $12.04.
Of course, I'm still salty that Blizzard hasn't brought Starcraft or Warcraft to Steam nor did Microsoft put Halo Wars on sale. But it's fine, there's plenty of other games to choose from. I'll probably get X-COM and maybe Phoenix Point, which I shouted out because it's made by the original developer of the 90's X-COM.
The Steam Strategy Fest ends on September 4th, so don't miss out and don't forget to check in everyday to claim a free reward.
