Is your wallet ready? Ready or not, the Steam Summer Sale will reportedly start on the 11th of June 2015, which is about a week from now. This was made known through a premature announcement post on Valve’s official VKontakte account, a social networking site in Russia.
According to the post, the sale will begin on the 11th to the 20th of June 2015, which will then be immediately followed by a two-day encore sale that will feature the best deals the sale had to offer. This will be incredibly helpful for those who have missed out on the game that they wanted when it went on sale. Either that, or it just gives more opportunities for gamers who simply cannot resist a good deal.
As expected from any Steam sale, gamers can expect huge discounts on selected titles throughout the sale period. The previous Summer Sale featured trading card system where you can collect, trade and craft trading cards in exchange for various reward such as in-game items and even games. It has not been confirmed yet if this will be back for the upcoming sale.
Seeing how Steam has started pricing games in RM, it should be much easier for Malaysian gamers to make their purchases now. However, Maybank is reportedly blocking all transactions from Steam, classifying the gaming platform as a “high-risk website”. If you’re planning to make your purchase on Steam with your Maybank account, it’s best to give the customer service line a call at 1-300-88-6688 to enquire further.
