In a recent Reddit post, a clever user has uncovered details of an upcoming Steam Halloween sale which will go live on Halloween weekend. The Reddit user, ToraxXx posted a thread in which is stated that the sale in question will start on October 30th, and will expire on November 3rd. Talking about the games to be included in this “full blown” sale, titles with a dark theme are the aimed ones to celebrate the eerie All Hallow’s Eve. So, this means you will be able to get horror-genre games for prices that will give you goosebumps and glue you to the screen to get spooked some more.
The leaked post, originally destined for developers states the following: “We’re excited to announce the 2014 Halloween Sale, Which will run during the Halloween weekend from Thursday, October 30th at 10am Pacific until Monday, November 3rd at 10am Pacific.” The leak also gives details on the games to be featured: “We’re inviting any games that fit into the general Halloween theme to participate. If you’re not sure if your game fits that theme, look at how customers have tagged your product. Likely good fits are horror, zombies, ghosts, vampires survival horror, dark and so on. Products that are clearly not a good fit for the Halloween sale will not be featured.”
This Halloween sale is intended to keep players engaged before the imminent Winter sale, a period of transition in which horror enthusiasts can take out their wallets and start spending. So, there you have it. If you’re looking for some spook your pants off rushes, stay close and make your picks. There’s plenty of time left, but make sure that your credit card is loaded.
