Steam has finally announced all major sales dates for 2023. Valve's client is one of, if not the biggest, digital storefronts for video games and has been a mainstay for PC gamers for over a decade. Valve has made massive strides throughout the years, making games accessible to players. Among the many things that attract players to Steam is the generous and regular sales.
Sales on Valve's digital storefront for PC games include not only big AAA blockbuster titles but also niche indie games, allowing players to choose from a wide spectrum of video games. Although Valve hosts sales on its digital storefront quite regularly, the biggest sales that players from around the globe look forward to are the seasonal and Black Friday sales.
Valve recently announced the Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter Sales dates. The company usually announces dates quite close to when the sale begins. As such, it is quite a surprise for many PC players to get them for big events way earlier than expected.
