Steam’s 2017 Autumn Sale is underway now through next Tuesday, Nov. 28. It packs the usual heavy-percentage discounts on almost 5,000 titles, covering some of the biggest franchises in PC gaming.
Highlighted deals include Middle-earth: Shadow of War for $35.99, which is 40 percent off full price; Dark Souls 3 at $23.99, a savings of 60 percent; and Elite: Dangerous for $13.49, or 55 percent off.
The Evil Within 2’s $29.99 price tag is half off. Other highlights include Star Trek: Bridge Crew, the virtual reality multiplayer title, which is down to $29.99, a 40-percent savings.
Full franchises are also part of the bargains: Bethesda Softworks is offering discounts between 50 and 75 percent on the Fallout series, highlighted by the Fallout Classic Collection (composed of the first two PC games, plus Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel), Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate (the 2010 game and all of its DLC) and Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition. Each game is $9.99.
Additionally, The Steam Awards are returning for a second year. Valve is seeking nominations from players for 31 creatively worded honors, ranging from The “Defies Description” Award to The “Even Better Than I Expected” Award. Nominations are also open through Nov. 28.
