Valve kicked off its annual Holiday Sale on Steam today, with an ever-changing set of deals that will run through Jan. 3, 2014.
The sale comes less than month after this year's Autumn Sale, which went live just before Thanksgiving.
As usual, Valve is offering new flash sales every eight hours, along with daily deals and other longer-term discounts. Wallet-conscious Steam users looking for a discount on a particular game can add it to their wish list and set up notifications so they get alerted when that title goes on sale. While the promotion is running, Steam will also host a Snow Globe trading card metagame; users who collect enough of the special Snow Globe-marked cards can earn an exclusive badge which unlocks in-game content in free-to-play titles like Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2.
The initial set of daily deals includes discounts on BioShock Infinite, Monaco, Dishonored, The Stanley Parable and a handful of other top titles from the digital distribution platform. You can check out all the deals on the Steam Store landing page.
