One of the most popular annual events that all gamers across the world look forward to just went live today - the Steam Summer sale 2021 is on!
Whether you have been waiting for a specific set of games from your wishlist to finally go on a sale in order to play them or just decide to pick up some discounted games spontanously in order to never play them at all, this sale offers excitement for most users on Steam!
This year's summer sale went live at 7PM CET and caused various performance issues for the Steam servers at the start as always.
Until the 8th of July at 7PM CET the sale will remain active and allow you to browse thousands of discounted games of all genres.
Of course, Valve has also come up with a little event for the Steam summer sale on the store page as they do every year and brought back a reward for browsing your discovery queue on Steam.
On this year's Steam Summer sale event, you are given various little stories where you have to make choices to earn according Steam badges and summer sale cards which is not too exciting admittedly but still a fun addition to this yearly event!
