Steam Celebrates Summer with a Sale

Well, we’ve all been expecting it, but it’s here: the Steam Summer sale has started. The headline deal is clearly the not-yet-available-for-Mac Bioshock: Infinite (although you can get it cheaper from GMG if you’re quick).

So how’s this going to work this year?

For the next eleven days, take advantage of huge saving of up to 75% off on over 2000 PC, Mac and Linux titles. Check back often to take advantage of our eight-hour Flash Sales. You can even help select what goes on sale with our Community’s Choice Voting Sales.

And let’s not forget one of the Summer Sale’s most popular features: our Daily Deals. We’re launching a hundred Daily Deals throughout the sale, so there’s plenty of opportunity to save big on some truly great titles.

So it’s all Steam meta-game stuff we’ve seen before, but there’s also the recently added Steam Trading Cards getting in on the action:

Buying discounted games now earns you an all-new collectible in the form of Trading Cards. Collect, trade and craft over 50 new sets of cards, including 10 Summer Getaway Trading Cards that can only be earned during the sale. Each set can be crafted into badges, backgrounds, emoticons and other rewards.

The sale will run until July 22nd.
