Adjust Comment Print

Today, sees the start of the Chinese New Year - also called the Lunar New Year - welcoming the Year of the Pig, and so it gives PC VR owners another chance to save some cash in Steam's Lunar New Year Sale. These include Far Cry 5, GTA V, Dark Souls 3, and others. A separate local co-op category highlights Human Fall Flat ($7), Overcooked 2 ($19), and Helldivers ($10).

Furthermore, it seems like everyone who logs in during the sale will automatically get some tokens (the amount seems to vary from player to player) to spend after opening a "red envelope", as well as a one-off $5 coupon on any order that costs more than $30. Fortunately, yet another one of the platform's massive discount periods has arrived, in the form of the Lunar New Year sale. You'll get tokens as you buy games - 100 tokens per $1 - that can be redeemed at a "rewards booth" for additional $5 discount coupons, as well as new profile page styles, account badges, and other such digital baubles. "Additional tokens can be rewarded by purchasing games during the sale". You'll receive 127 tokens per £1 you spend (139 tokens per £1 for gifts).

You can redeem your tokens at the Rewards Booth. There are only a dozen emotes, so spending just $12 is enough to get the whole set. The Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2019 end date and time is February 11, 2018 at 11:30pm IST.
