Steam's annual Holiday Sale has officially begun. Daily deals on the best games of 2012 and beyond starting now and running through January 5. There doesn't appear to be any sort of contest or meta-event going on this year, unfortunately, but everyone's favorite sales are back. That means daily deals (now 48 hours long), flash deals and community voted sales too! Did I mention publisher packs as well?
Here are today's current daily deals, as well as the current flash deals:
- Hitman Franchise - Hitman Absolution 50% off @ $24.99
- Borderlands Franchise - Borderlands 2 50% off @ $29.99
- WarGame: European Escalation - 75% off @ $9.99
- Mirror's Edge - 75% off @ $4.99
- Prince of Persia Franchise - 75% off @ $12.24
- Scribblenauts Unlimited - 33% ooff @ $19.99
- War of the Roses - 50% off @ $14.99
- Intrusion 2 - 66% off @ $3.39
- Operation Flashpoint: Red River - 75% off @ $13.74
- Natural Selection - 60% off @ $9.99
- Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition - 75% off @ $7.49
- Fable III - 75% off @ $12.49
It looks like Borderlands 2 and Hitman: Absolution are leading in sales so far today, but indie Natural Selection 2 is making a good showing too. It's truly the holiday season and we've truly been blessed with the Steampocalypse Holiday Sale.
A reminder to those who are new to the Steam sale, unless you see the game you want to buy in the daily deals or flash sales wait until it is! Otherwise, wait until the final day of the sale to make any purchases. Otherwise you might be throwing money out the door, but for a good cause. The best cause.
