Halloween is a great time for candy and scares, but it’s also an excellent opportunity to save on PC games. Steam has just kicked off its annual Halloween sale, in which a heck ton of spooky games have been discounted. Thankfully, if you’re not up for a scare, there are also quite a few non-horror titles discounted as well, including Death Stranding for $42 (was $60), DOOM Eternal for $30 (was $60), and Control Ultimate Edition for $27 (was $40). The Steam Halloween Sale runs from now until November 2 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
The popular ghost-hunting game, Phasmophobia, has gotten a slight discount. Normally $14, its price has been slashed to $12.59. It’s an excellent game to play with your friends as you try to detect the ghost haunting a house, school, or asylum by using a variety of tools. You’ll have to work together to determine what type of ghost you’re tracking before it starts fighting back and taking the lives of each player.
One of the best VR games, Half-Life: Alyx, is also featured in the Steam Halloween Sale. Valve’s triumphant return to the Half-Life series is currently $45, down from its regular price of $60. It follows titular character Alyx before the events of Half-Life 2 as she fights against the Combine and a variety of other monstrous enemies. It’s compatible with Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus, and Windows Mixed Reality VR headsets.
Survival-horror game The Forest is also more than half off during the sale. The Forest currently costs $9 (was $20) and has you exploring an open world set on an unknown island after a plane crash. Your son goes missing, and you must find him, all the while surviving the elements as well as the mutants that call the island home. You’ll explore the vast forest in addition to the underground caves and more in your search.
A number of games are also hosting Halloween events, including Destiny 2‘s Festival of the Lost, Warframe‘s Nights of Naberus, and Dead by Daylight‘s The Eternal Blight. You can see all of the Halloween events on Steam.
