Steam Winter Sale 2016 Now Live; DOOM, The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition, The Division, GTA V And Many Others Discounted


Earlier this month, it's been confirmed that the Steam Winter Sale 2016 will run from December 22nd until January 2nd, allowing customers all over the world to purchase titles at heavily discounted prices. Just as announced, the Steam Winter Sale 2016 and all its deals are now live.

As expected, this year's Steam Winter Sale 2016 features a massive amount of deals. Notable highlights include discounts for the DOOM series, including a deal for the latest entry in the series released earlier this year, The Witcher 3 Game of the Year Edition, which includes all the DLC packs released for the game, Ubisoft Massive's The Division, the whole Civilization series, including the recently released Civilization VI, Cities: Skylines Deluxe, Grand Theft Auto V and many, many others.
