Steam Strategy Fest begins next week, celebrates…well…strategy games

Summer sales are not over yet.

Where would we be without Steam? It’s easily the most popular way to download and play PC games in the current climate. The developer Valve also treats us to numerous events and sales throughout the year, and the next one is just around the corner.

If you like strategy games, then get ready for Steam Strategy Fest. As the name implies, this will be a celebration of all things tactical. A recent promo video gives a brief hint at what’s to come.

The event will kick off Monday, August 28 at 10AM Pacific and will go on until September 4, so that’s a week in which to get your strategy on (that’s a saying, right?)

What’s to be expected?

As always, Steam isn’t saying absolutely everything about Strategy Fest. Suffice it to say, you can find demos and discounted games on sale throughout the week. As for what’s going to be on offer, it’s hard to say, but the short video above outlines a few titles that are likely to be included, such as Dune: Spice Wars and The Riftbreaker. Essentially, if this is a genre you’re into, you’re bound to find something you like.

Considering that we recently had the Visual Novel Fest, and before that the Stealth Fest, Valve does a good job of making sure we all stay tuned into its gaming platform. We can’t help ourselves. There’s usually something for everyone at these sales events. They make our Steam libraries look nice and bulky, even if they have the opposite effect on our collective wallets and digital bank accounts.
