Original article from 02/23/2023: Valve announced in the second half of the year that Steam Sales would be streamlined. The schedule for Steam promotions and events for 2023 is now available. Seasonal discounts are now running four times a year on Steam. All published games are invited to participate in these events with a discount. In addition, the Mystery Festival already showed that there should be more thematic activities. Each of these promotions highlights a category of games, which at the same time also determines the corresponding eligibility criteria. These promotions/events prioritize discounted titles, but also provide space for free games, upcoming new releases, and games with demos.
Steam is rearranging the sales: spring is being upgraded
Held three times a year, the Steam Game Preview is a multi-day event that gives fans the opportunity to try out new demos, talk to developers, watch live streams, and learn more about upcoming games on Steam. For developers, it’s a chance to get early feedback from players and generate interest in their games while the official Steam release is yet to come. The February 2023 Steam game preview is happening now. The next two editions have already been announced and are open for registration with this general schedule announcement.
