Steam Halloween Sale Is Now Live

Take advantage of some ghoulishly good deals.

Just in time for the spookiest holiday of the year, Valve has kicked off a Halloween-themed sale on Steam that slashes the prices of many different horror-themed games and movies (yes, you can buy movies through Steam now too).

The game deals aren’t terribly spectacular, but if there’s a particular horror game you’ve been eyeing as of late, chances are good it has had its price reduced for the sale. Highlights include the original Outlast and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, both having their prices reduced to $4.99.

Additionally, SOMA is up for grabs at $11.99, Darkest Dungeon for $14.99, The Secret World for $8.99, and the asymmetrical multiplayer title Dead by Daylight (which recently got a new Michael Meyers Halloween update) for $13.99.

As for the horror-themed movies on sale, there’s a decent mix of classics (Evil Dead 2, American Psycho, The Blair Witch Project) among more recent titles (I, Frankenstein, Sinister, the entire seven-part Saw series), each of which is available for less than six dollars (with some being as cheap as $0.99).

Valve even added a third bonus section of the sale which offers discounts for all of the non-horror Steam games to have received some sort of Halloween update such as Payday 2, SUPERHOT, The Long Dark, and more.

You can browse the full contents of the Steam Halloween Sale here. The sale is set to last until November 1st so be sure to give it a look sooner rather than later.
