Weekend PC Download Deals for Mar. 17: Steam Deck and the Steam Spring Sale
It’s that time again. Uncle Gabe is back for more cash, because the Steam Spring Sale is underway. Many of the top games in the world are on sale, some with their biggest discounts to date. Notably, the sale also extends to the handheld Steam Deck, the first time that Valve’s machine has seen a discount from its storefront. While 10 percent might not be much when it comes to regularly retail priced titles, it can mean bigger savings on an expensive handheld.
While the Steam Spring Sale is exciting, it’s important to note that just because there’s a title featured there doesn’t mean it’s the best value. Be sure to shop around, because stores like Green Man Gaming, Fanatical, Gamesplanet, Gamebillet, and others may have a better discount. Shop wisely this weekend.
Plus, enjoy some of the freebies going around right now. The Wonderlands prequel Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure is absolutely free on Steam right now, so claim it while you can. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is in the middle of a free multiplayer weekend. Plus, Anno 1800 is free to play for the next week.
