Steam Summer Sale 2022 – our highlights
A Plague Tale Innocence
This stealth adventure game is not only graphically beautiful, but the story in particular has taken the fancy of critics and community alike. France 1348: The country is plagued by a mysterious rat infestation. Amica de Rune has to watch as her home is invaded and her father killed. Together with her little brother Hugo, who suffers from a mysterious disease, she flees and the two children must henceforth fight their way through the scarred country. In the process, Hugo discovers new abilities – because of which sinister henchmen are on their heels all the time. The sequel to the successful game, “A Plague Tale: Requiem”, is also scheduled for release in 2022.
A beautifully designed open word in block graphics is open to the player in “Terraria”. Quests are rather optional. Primarily it is about discovering and mining materials as well as fights against various enemies. For this, there is both a single-player and a multiplayer mode. Since its release in 2012, the game has built up an enormous fan base – and rightly so.
Assassin’s Creed Origins.
“Assassin’s Creed” is one of the most successful video game series in the world. The basic premise: With the help of DNA and a machine, it is possible to see the past through the eyes of a deceased person. The knowledge that can be retrieved in this way continues a centuries-long conflict between the Assassin League and the Templar Order. “Assassin’s Creed Origin” is one of the best parts of the series and highlights the founding story of the Assassins. Set against the spectacular backdrop of ancient Egypt, the player accompanies Bajek of Siwa, who is on the trail of a secret society to avenge the death of his son. There are even more parts reduced as part of the Steam Summer Sale 2002.

This spectacular action role-playing game is set in the near future, where the world is on the brink of collapse after the so-called Great Collapse. In order to fight the monsters that appear everywhere, the Revenants were created – literally. These are in fact vampiric zombies that have been brought back to life by a parasite. However, due to the scarcity of resources, the vampires, who are equipped with unique abilities, can also pose a threat.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
From the creators of “Dark Souls” and ” Elden Ring ” also comes “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice”. In a similarly gloomy world, the goal is to defeat incredibly difficult opponents. However, there are fewer role-playing elements compared to the other titles mentioned. Instead, we play the shinobi Sekiro, who is placed at the side of a young nobleman as a protector. One of the best and most difficult games of the past few years, it is significantly reduced as part of the Steam Summer Sale 2022.
God of War
Much time has passed since the battle against the gods of Olympus and Kratos has retreated with his family to Midgard. When his wife dies, he and his son Atreus begin a journey through Norse mythology. The acclaimed sequel to this popular series takes you to completely new areas and adds young Atreus with his bow to the gameplay.
To call “Octopath Traveler” still an insider tip is probably presumptuous by now. But if you haven’t played the game yet, you should definitely do so during the Steam Summer Sale 2002. The name says it all: The player accompanies eight heroes through several stages. In a lovingly designed 2D graphic, you have to find the best group composition and piece together the different stories.
Conclusion of the Steam Summer Sale 2022
The Summer Sale on Steam is again very extensive in this year 2022. It is noticeable that many big names are again on offer; titles like “FIFA 22” are partly reduced by 84 percent. The offer is therefore worthwhile for those who want to check off a few titles on their wish list, as well as for those who want to test new games on a larger scale.
We are especially excited about the announced scavenger hunt quest from Steam. The trailer here promises entertainment and, above all, new rewards.
