What are the Steam Summer Sale best deals for 2021?
Our Steam Summer Sale best deals for 2021 are as follows:
This is a unique puzzle game with online co-op. You and a mate must brave the blistering cold to rescue your missing explorer chums, and it’s basically a fantastic game for people who love difficult puzzles.
Although Outlast 2 has been out since 2017, you really must play the sequel if you haven’t already. It’s far scarier than the original thanks to starring an effed up religious cult with a leader who has endless chins, and there’s also a terrifying hag who likes to stab you in the weiner.
Coming from the folks behind Alan Wake, Control is a unique experience with sci-fi and horror themes. Its house of horrors is ever-changing alongside its enemies and Jesse’s supernatural abilities, and it’s a must-play for people who love otherworldly stories.
While SCUM is still in early access, it’s an online open world survival game that fans of shark movies will massively enjoy. The open landscape is gorgeous, it allows for up to 64 players per server, there are sharks to hunt, and it even has realistic features such as your character needing to relieve themselves every now and then.
This is a first-person shooter described as a Prop Hunt Roguelite nightmare all about meat. In that case we can’t recommend this game for vegetarians, but for everyone else get ready to enjoy a whacky, sad, and haunting experience where the props hunt you.
Although the Guardians of the Galaxy game looks amazing, it’s sad that Eidos Montreal are being pushed further away from Adam Jensen. Deus Ex Mankind Divided is the perfect game for stealth enthusiasts as well as people who enjoy stories and themes about societal division. It ends on a whimper thanks to rushed development and Square Enix pushing the series to the side in favour of MARVEL, but we can easily recommend it for £2.99.
A turn-based strategy game with a very positive reception on Steam, it’s a must for sci-fi enthusiasts who enjoy games such as X-Com and Civilization. There is online PvP included, but the main attraction is building an empire and uncovering the secrets of the sci-fi setting.
We end with a sports game that can either be relaxing and calm or hellishly painful and infuriatingly difficult. It’s created by the people responsible for Worms, and it’s a mini-golf adventure that allows up to 12 players at once. You can either compete on a realistic mini-golf track, or you can put in front of a kraken, venture into space, or even curse the holy grail bomb from Worms.
