The greatly anticipate Steam Summer Sale has begun, with the usual array of extremely tempting discounts and deals. Both Far Cry 3 and X-COM Enemy unknown are currently going for 75% as part of the daily deal; if you haven’t had time to catch up on the Far Cry series before the launch of Far Cry 4, this would be a good time to do so. Valve has also altered the Steam trading card game, giving users the opportunity to win free games if they participate in crafting a badge.
Steam’s Summer Adventure works by randomly assigning users to a team. Each user is then able to contribute points to their team by crafting badges. Naturally, badges are created by collecting Steam trading cards. After each day, the 30 users from the winning team who contributed points to the victory will receive 3 games from their wishlist for free. Not only that, the winning team members will also receive trading cards to craft even more badges.
Not only that, users who successfully craft the Summer Adventure badge will receive a random in-game item from one of the participating games, such as Dota 2, Team Fortress 2, Spiral Knights, and Loadout.
