Steam Awards Voting Opens Alongside the Winter Sale

Steam Awards 2020

With the holidays upon us and the end of the year thankfully close, it’s time for the annual Steam Awards as well as the Winter Sale. For those looking for great deals on some of this year’s (and past years’) best games. The sale will last through January 5, 2021 so there’s no time to waste. Get in there and grab some of the sweetest deals this side of the Summer Sale!

In addition to great savings for your wallet, you can also take part in the annual Steam Awards. Valve has taken “tens of millions of nominations” and distilled them into a list of 40 titles spread across ten categories for voting. Players and fans can vote from now through January 3rd. As thanks for doing so, voters will receive a random card from this year’s set of Winter Sale Trading Cards for each vote cast. Winners will be announced at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern on January 3rd.

You can vote by visiting the Steam Awards official page.
