We’re in the penultimate month before Christmas arrives and Santa starts dishing out presents. However, even though the festive period doesn’t begin until December, for many it actually starts in November thanks to the annual Black Friday bargains. Here you will find the next Steam Autumn sale 2023 start date and time countdown so you know when to anticipate the valve Black Friday discounts.

While the Steam discounts are yet to begin, be aware that the PlayStation store Black Friday sale 2023 is already underway. This is the perfect opportunity to renew your PS Plus 12-month subscription to avoid the price increase from Sony. As for PC, in addition to Valve, the Epic Games store Black Friday sale 2023 is also right around the corner.

While there are other bargains happening elsewhere and right now, below is everything you need to know about Valve’s annual Autumn discounts.

Steam Autumn Sale 2023 start date

The Steam Autumn Sale 2023 start date is November 21st for Black Friday offerings. This launch day comes courtesy of SteamDB, and it’s the next set of Valve discounts following on from the Steam Halloween sale that concluded on November 2nd.

As for Black Friday, this takes place during the Autumn event. Publishers usually conduct their own Black Friday sales on the Steam store such as in 2022 when Capcom provided their own Black Friday sale. This saw lots of Resident Evil games fall below even £5.

No promotions have been revealed for this year yet, but there are bound to be dozens of exciting discounts. In addition, fans will also be able to start voting in the Steam Awards. While The Game Awards 2023 crowns their GOTY winner on December 7th, Valve’s awards are perfect for gamers to pick their own nominees and winners rather than just watching the media.

When does the Steam Autumn Sale 2023 start?

The release date and start time for the Steam Autumn Sale 2023 is 10 AM PT/ 1 PM ET/ 6 PM GMT on November 21st. This again comes courtesy of the countdown found on SteamDB. It will end on November 28th, meaning you will only have one week to take advantage of all the discounts and Black Friday offerings. Unfortunately, no list of discounted games has been revealed as of writing.
