Peruse our picks from the 2017 Steam Autumn Sale

Open up your wallets, PC gamers, because Steam's running a pretty darn good sale right now. It's called the Steam Autumn Sale, and the fact that it takes place at the same time as the Black Friday-to-Cyber-Monday weekend of unrestrained consumerism is certainly entirely coincidental. There are over six thousand games deeply discounted right now. As usual, we've scoured the sale for the best offers so you can game while you gorge.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

The best deals on the docket today are probably Rise of the Tomb Raider for just $20—as cheap as it's ever been—and Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition for just $4.50. In a similar open-world canine vein, the TR Editor-in-Chief-recommended Watch Dogs 2 is 66% off, bringing it to a hair over $20. I bought open-world zombies-and-parkour game Dying Light at full price when it came out, and only recently started playing it, much to my chagrin. It's a killer game, and you can get it right now for $18, or pick it up with all the DLC for $24.

Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition

There's also a really fantastic deal on Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition. This game originally came out in 2007, but it's been revamped with modern networking and a light graphics overhaul, and it actually just got a new expansion this month. If you're in the mood for a bit of Diablo-style hack & slash, pick up Titan Quest: AE for just $4. Alternatively, if you prefer your hack-and-slash fantasy games in third-person perspective, Dark Souls III is at its lowest price ever: $24. The prior game is discounted even further, too. You can grab Dark Souls II with all its DLC for just $10.

Necropolis: Brutal Edition

Necropolis: Brutal Edition is an indie take on the Dark Souls formula that also supports cooperative play. The game is a blast in co-op, and it's 85% off at $4.50. If you prefer competition, you can sabotage your friends in the amazing four-player dungeon-delving game Crawl, which has has never been cheaper than its current price of $7.50. Mario Kart isn't on Steam, but the stellar Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed is 75% off at $5, and it also supports four-player local competitive play. In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, you race to defuse a puzzle bomb while your friends struggle to read you the complex instructions from the manual. It's 67% off right now, bringing it to just $5.

Remember Me

Once a staple of video game libaries, the long-neglected brawler genre has seen a resurgence on Steam recently. Former console exclusive Bayonetta is half-off for the first time, making it just $10. Metal Gear series spin-off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance hails from the same developer, and it's just $7.50 right now. Capcom's Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is arguably the pinnacle of the genre, and it's only $10. Also from Capcom, Remember Me offers a more cerebral take on the style, and it's only $6 right now. The Darksiders series offers an edgy plot and character designs by Joe Mad of Marvel Comics fame. Grab the remastered versions of both games for $10.

Age of Empires III

Finally, we've got a whole pack of price-chopped strategy games. Age of Empires II HD is considered by some to be the best of the series, and you can get it 75% off for $5. If you prefer 3D visuals, get Age of Empires III Complete Collection instead for $10, also 75% off. Meanwhile, standout grand strategy title Europa Universalis IV is 75% off at $10. Turn-based strategy fans can grab the XCOM reboot for just $7.50 and its sequel XCOM 2 for $20. Stepping over to the fantasy side, Total War: Warhammer is a hair over $20. Fans of that franchise can also grab the Left 4 Dead-inspired Warhammer End Times: Vermintide for just $7.50.

Don't forget to nominate games for the 2017 Steam Awards, too. If the Steam store doesn't do it for you, most of these games and many more are available DRM-free over at We have no commission with either site, so purchase where you prefer. Let us know in the comments if you pick up anything, or if there are any deals we passed up.

    So why the late post about the steam sales? That’s two days you let go by.

    So all you people that purchased Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus before the current steam sale: How do you feel? I tried to warn people about the game being discounted to $30 around christmas time, but i was laughed at. They Discounted TNO around Christmas, but I didn’t expect the thanksgiving sale. That’s a discount in less than 30 days after release. The irony is the major bugs being reported in the steam forums have not been fixed before the sale. The gamplay is fun, but the story is lacking compared to TNO. The ending just tells you that there will be a 3rd game. TRY not to buy that one early.

    Civ6 is 50% off too and is quite tempting for the price, though g2play has it still cheaper at 24.
    AOM is also 75% off and I personally prefer its theme over AOE (but I bought it at some previous sale when it was also 75% off)

    Here’s a few more deals I clipped from the post. I personally endorse all of these games:

    [url=<]Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition, $50% off at $10[/url<] (get ready for a feels trip) [url=<]Arma III, 66% off at $14[/url<] (crush your CPU) [url=<]Shadow Warrior 2, 50% off at $20[/url<] (also a bundle with SW1 and Classic for $28) [url=<]Vanquish, 50% off at $10[/url<] (by the devs of Bayonetta and Nier Automata, amazing unique shooter) [url=<]Hotline Miami, 75% off at $2.50[/url<] (indie classic) [url=<]Dex, 50% off at $10[/url<] (cyberpunk metroidvania, good but short) [url=<]Spelunky, 90% off at $1.50[/url<] (revamped roguelite classic with 4 player local) Also, basically everything from Bethesda on Steam is half-off or more. [url=<]Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus[/url<], [url=<]Fallout 4 GOTYE[/url<], and [url=<]The Evil Within 2[/url<] are all $30. [url=<]TESV: Skyrim SE is $20[/url<], tho if you haven't played it yet I might pick up [url=<]the original[/url<] for the same price considering its superior modding support. [url=<]Doom is $15[/url<], and you can get [url=<]Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Old Blood for $15 together[/url<].

      Crazy. I’m better off buying all of the DLC for Fallout 4 than the GOTY Edition because they don’t discount the GOTYE for what I already own. Can save $2 buy buying the pieces separately if I wanted all of them.

      That’s a better list than most out there. I would also add [url=<]Depth[/url<] 75% off @ $4.99 if you like multiplayer games like CS:GO and sharks. The community is nicer, and the gameplay is skill based, making it one of the most fun games I've played in a long time. Engine is UE3, but graphics are pretty decent and runs well on most modern video cards. The developers also run events every holiday that change the graphics and give bonus rewards. Skin drops are part of the game, but at no time do you feel required to buy them, as they are dropped on a regular basis for playing.

    I haven’t tried the Ragnarok expansion yet but I played through Titan Quest multiple times and the Anniversary Edition only made the game better. It’s one of the few games that was still getting patches over a decade after the game was released. So it’s nice to see THQ Nordic releases yet another expansion for the game.

      Did you hear that it’s on mobiles now? Heh.

      Should get into Grim Dawn, it’s made by the same people and awesome.

        It’s on my list of things to get to eventually. Only have a few hundred other games to work through first. 😉

        My main problem is that when I get into a game I tend to play it over and over again before moving on. Currently playing through Borderlands 2 with Gaige as my newest character, only on my 6th playthrough (though only took one character all the way to Ultimate Vault Hunter.) I did just pick up the Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs (already had but hadn’t played the regular edition) and upgraded my Payday 2 to the Ultimate edition (so I got three new mission related DLC) for $5.

    Also check out Green Man Gaming BF sale. They have some stuff that is pretty competitive with the Steam sale.

    Eg, I picked up Wolfenstein The New Colossus, which both steam and GMG have for 50% off, but GMG is offering an additional 15% off with the code GMGBLACKFRIDAY (or specific member voucher codes if you are already signed up)
