Have you been penny-pinching ready for the Steam Summer Sale 2021? Well it's live now so you can open those wallets up and build up another backlog of games.
This year Valve has announced what they're calling Forge Your Fate, which are "fourteen themed pages featuring destiny-defining micro-adventures, each one leading to an animated sticker, and all culminating in a fate-forged badge and glory". Each of them brings you to a special store page with games that fit the theme picked, and allow you to continue a little story. Additionally, the Points Shop has been updated with for all-new Game Profiles featuring animated backgrounds, mini-profiles, avatars, and colour schemes.
As per usual, we try to highlight some interesting stuff for you to try out. Here's a little list we think are worth a go:
- Planetary Annihilation: TITANS - 75% off
- Fort Triumph - 55% off
- Desperados III - 50% off
- The Pedestrian - 50% off
- VirtuaVerse - 50% off
- Skul: The Hero Slayer - 25% off
- Space Haven - 25% off
- Crusader Kings III - 20% off
- Griftlands - 20% off
- Valheim - 10% off (first sale)
You can grab some cheap games during Steam's Summer Sale from June 24 until July 8. As usual, the store appears to be struggling too and not all discounts are live (keep refreshing and more appear). Eventually it will smoothen out.
What will you be picking up? Do let us know in the comments what you think it's worth it.
Should I buy:
- Crusader Kings III + Expansion Pass ~ 75€
- Crusader Kings III Royal Edition ~ 68€
- Crusader Kings III Royal Edition + Extension Pass ~ 102€
Royal Edition and Extension Pass looks kind of redundant, but only partly. If Paradox would initially launch a "Pay-Once-and-Get-Everything-that-comes" Edition for 120€, I would buy it. Maybe only as an offering for the preorder phase.
Maybe I'll grab just one or two.
- Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Enhanced Plus Edition - 55% off
- Ravenfield - 40% off
- METRO EXODUS - GOLD EDITION - 75% off
- SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER: DEFINITIVE EDITION - 85% off
- SID MEIER’S CIVILIZATION® VI ANTHOLOGY - 76% off
I'm still somewhere in the middle of Metro Exodus though.

I'm out a similar mindset. Maybe my tastes are changing our maybe I'm internalizing my goal to not purchase any games this is year. I think more, that I'm just getting more picky about what I want to spend my money and time on despite all the great games out there.

Quoting: wvstolzingThe PedestrianThanks for mentioning this one, looks really interesting.
Quoting: WorMzyAnyone else having issues with the "Steam Labs experiment 012" sales explorer not finding any results if they select Linux from the platform options?
I'm not 100% sure how you have selected the platform, but the default sales page for me is mainly Linux games at the top, more Windows games closer to bottom. I have no idea if that's by accident or not.
I have Linux set in the store settings, so widgets that do the filtering properly have only Linux games.
If I select Linux from category menu, all games seem to have Linux support as far as I can see.
