The annual and renowned Steam holiday sale has arrived, running from 20 December to 1 January (Singapore time). In addition to the usual, incredibly discounted daily deals and publisher catalogue packs, this year’s holiday sale features daily Christmas-themed achievements to complete, similar to the 2011 Steam summer sale.
Successfully completing a daily achievement will earn you either a free gift in your Steam inventory, or a lump of coal (i.e. the Steam holiday equivalent of the Steam summer sale’s prize tickets). You can use seven pieces of coal to redeem a guaranteed prize from the list of gifts available.
And if that is not enough, once the holiday sale ends, Valve will be giving out free games in an Epic Holiday Giveaway lottery. The grand prize winner will receive every single game on Steam, while the rest will receive the top items on their wishlists or Valve Complete Packs. For more information, visit this Steam holiday sale page.
