As detailed on its official Steamworks site, the online marketplace’s Halloween Sale will launch this week, ahead of its Autumn Sale in November and its Winter Sale in December.
Valve says Steam’s Halloween Sale will include “a special focus on content updates and in-game events in celebration of the theme”.

Last week, Valve quietly released an update for Half-Life 2 which seemingly added several new features and repaired some long-standing bugs.
While the update was still in beta form, meaning there were no patch notes available, its main focus appeared to be adapting the resolution scaling and the UI to make sure the game looks good on Steam Deck’s 1280×800 resolution.
It will begin shipping in December with prices starting at $399 / £349 (64GB eMMC). Increased storage options are available for $529 / £459 (256GB NVMe SSD) and $649 / £569 (512GB NVMe SSD).
Valve announced last week that it’s launching a new rating system that will let Steam Deck owners easily tell which games are best suited for play on the platform.
The company is in the process of reviewing the entire Steam catalogue and is marking each game with one of four ratings designed to show how smooth the experience will be when playing that game on the handheld.
