The actual lunar new year is February 1st, but it looks like the Steam sale will start a little early. Valve has not yet officially announced Steam Lunar New Year release dates, but as always, the details have been leaked through Valve’s communications with developers. Then get your wallet ready, because it’s almost time for GabeN to give again.
The Steam Lunar New Year sale is set to run from January 27 to February 3, according to leaked dates listed on SteamDB. The new sale comes just 22 days after Steam’s winter sale, so it’s likely we’ll see pretty similar discounts here. Still, if you have endured a few major releases, now would be a good time to jump in.
This will also be the last major sale before the Steam Deck release date, which will see the first series of Valve’s handheld machine shipped to early buyers in February. Valves is stepping up its efforts with its Steam Deck Verified program, which will also provide indicators of how well a game will perform on the handheld right on the store side.
