Steam Summer Sale 2017: The Biggest Sales and Deals

The longest day of the year has come and gone – considered the first day of the summer for people in the Northern Hemisphere – and with that Steam’s annual summer sale is now upon us. Sure, for most of us in India it’s monsoon already, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the gifts that Steam bears.

On top of the discounts, Valve has added a mini-game of sorts, where you complete daily quests to fill a sticker book. If you manage to complete any of the 15 pages, that one will permanently stay unlocked on your account. Stickers can’t be traded, so you’ll have to do the quests to earn them.

If you don’t have an international credit/debit card, don’t worry. Steam brought in support for netbanking, digital wallets, and cash on delivery late last year, so there’s a ton of new ways to pay for your favourite games.

Steam Summer Sale 2017: The Biggest Sales and Deals

As has become the new norm, there’ll be no limited-time or flash sales during the Steam Summer Sale. Instead, games with discounts will stay that way throughout the sale period – June 22 to July 5 – and games that aren’t on discount won’t be receiving any discounts randomly. That’s good for players, since it gives you ample time to browse the store and find gems.

In any case, we’ve perused through the games on sale so you don’t have to bother looking. Here are the top deals during the Steam Summer Sale:

GTA V PC Modding Tool Open IV Is Back After Negative Reviews During Steam Summer Sale

GTA V PC creator Rockstar has had a tumultuous couple of weeks. Following Rockstar owner Take-Two’s heavy-handedness in dealing with user created modifications to GTA V’s single-player mode which resulted in the removal of popular PC modding tool Open IV, the studio had to step in to make things right.

According to a support post from Rockstar, Take-Two “generally will not take legal action against third-party projects involving Rockstar’s PC games that are single-player, non-commercial, and respect the intellectual property (IP) rights of third parties.”

It goes on to say that this will not apply to the following:

(i) multiplayer or online services (ii) tools, files, libraries, or functions that could be used to impact multiplayer or online services (iii) use or importation of other IP (including other Rockstar IP) in the project.

GTA V PC Modding Tool Open IV Is Back After Negative Reviews During Steam Summer Sale

Last week, Take-Two had handed a cease and desist letter to Krivoruchko. After this, Rockstar got in touch with Yuriy “Good-NDS” Krivoruchko the creator of popular GTA V modding tool Open IV to bring it back online, which it is right now.

Nonetheless, the move of taking down Open IV has hurt the Steam user reviews for GTA V. For a game that’s one of the best-selling on the platform, it’s sitting at a largely Overwhelmingly Negative rating at the moment, a point of concern considering that all this took place during the Steam Summer Sale, which doesn’t help Rockstar’s or Take-Two’s image.That hasn’t stopped it from being the second biggest seller on Steam though, right behind Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.
