Top 10 Deals in the Steam Summer Sale
Death Stranding Director’s Cut
Death Stranding was originally a PlayStation game that came to Steam and has been a surprise hit for many during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a dystopian future game where an event known as Death Stranding has occurred, creating a connection between the living and the dead, and you play as Sam Bridges, traveling through what’s left of the United States, making deliveries for the survivors. The game is available at a 30 percent discount, and those who already own the original game purchase the Director’s Cut at an additional cost, which also received a 30 percent discount.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
Another exclusive PlayStation game is Final Fantasy VII Remake. You can get the Intergrade version, which comes with an adventure starring Yuffie Kisaragi as she tries to sneak into Shinra Electric Power Company to steal the material from her. The game recently hit Steam earlier this June, and it’s already being offered for 29 percent off for anyone interested in adding it to their collection. This version includes the basic remake of Final Fantasy VII.
God of War
God of War was an original PlayStation exclusive game that made its way as a PC release. Here, you will play as Kratos, the former Greek god of war, as he and his son Atreus make their way to the highest point of Midgard. There they will scatter the ashes of the mother of Atreus; a final request from her directly places these two in conflict with various gods in the Norse pantheon. The game is available during the Steam Summer Sale for 20 percent off.
The rise of the monster hunter
Although Monster Hunter Rise wasn’t a PlayStation exclusive, it was a Nintendo Switch exclusive before coming to Steam. As in previous games, you will take on the role of a hunter as they take on increasingly difficult and massive monsters with a wide variety of weapons, hunting these creatures for their valuable resources to craft more equipment. The expansion for this game, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, will be released on June 30, so it’s a good time to jump into the game. You can pick this up at a 49 percent discount.
