Steam Exploration Sale: Black Friday Deals Start Now

The Steam Exploration Sale is now live which can only mean one thing for PC gamers: time to break out your wallets! Steam’s Thanksgiving sale starts today and will end on December 2nd.

Why is it called the Steam Exploration Sale? The enablers over at Steam will gladly recommend games for you to check out based on the previous titles that you’ve played and the contents of your Steam library all in the “Your Exploration Sale”.

There are some massive deals to be had. For example, The Valve Complete Pack which ordinarily goes for a hearty $99.99 is currently 75% off for a grand total of $24.99. So what will you get for 25 bucks? You’ll get Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Portal and Portal 2, Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress Classic, Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike, Counter Strike: Source, Counter Strike: Condition Zero, Day of Defeat, Day of Defeat: Source, Half Life 2, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, Half-Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two, Half-Life, Half-Life: Blue Shift, Half-Life: Opposing Force, Half-Life Deathmatch: Source, Half-Life Source, Ricochet and lastly, Deathmatch Classic. They really weren’t kidding when they called it the Valve Complete Pack.

The Steam Exploration Sale doesn’t just include what seems like every Valve game ever made, either. With interesting titles like Goat Simulator going for a scant $4.99, you no longer have an excuse not to try out the amazing Goat MMO Simulator expansion that’s free for Goat Simulator owners. Other featured deals include a 50% discount on Watch Dogs, Company of Heroes 2 for just $10, and 75% off of Sid Meier’s Civilization V: The Complete Edition.

With the Steam Exploration Sale offering such a wide variety of games at such competitive prices, it should come as no surprise that the data that shows that about 36.9% of games in Steam libraries go unplayed is actually a real statistic. Happy Black Friday shopping!
