2019's variant of the annual Steam Winter Sale has gone live, and it brings plenty of holiday spirit to PC gamers in the form of record-low prices for popular titles. The event runs all the way until January 2, 2020, and up until that point, players can earn special tokens by spending money on games at a rate of $1 per 100 tokens. These tokens can be used to purchase special festive-themed customizations, such as emotes and profile backgrounds, that will help players spruce up their Steam profile.
We took a thorough look at the deals on offer so far, and some of the best ones available include Dark Souls III for $15, Fallout 4 for $9, Assassin's Creed: Origins for $15, and Rainbow Six: Siege for $8. New Destiny 2 players have a lot to be excited about in particular, as the Forsaken and Shadowkeep expansions are more affordable than ever, with Forsaken selling for $15 and Shadowkeep for $21, respectively.
