Steam Bash Bash Sale Chivalry 2 Gameplay

Steam Bash Bash sale discounts games that choose violence in September

Be en garde for this upcoming sale!

Next month will see the Steam Survival Fest sale go live, but it’s what follows in September that has people talking. The Steam Bash Bash sale begins on September 19 and ends a week later on September 26. It is themed around action games like brawlers, which will go on sale at a discounted price.

Valve states that the criteria for a game to qualify for Steam Bash Bash is that it must “emphasize combat with melee weapons as the primary game mechanic.” The registration criteria lists hack-and-slash, musou, spectacle fighters, and character action games as genres that fit the criteria. Although Valve does acknowledge that games outside of those genres can still be eligible. They just need to include certain mechanics like RPG elements, fast-paced combat, and swordplay or shooting.

 

Realistically, none of that criteria really matters because Valve will want to put as many games as possible in the Steam Bash Bash sale. If a game has any kind of weapon-based combat, it can be inlcuded.

Sales beyond

Although the games that will be included haven’t been confirmed, we can take a good guess. Obvious inclusions include sword fighting games like Chivalry 2, For Honor, and Naraka: Bladepoint. Additionally, beat ’em ups like Streets of Rage 4 and TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge seem likely to make the cut. A lot of mainstream games have violence in them, so the Steam Bash Bash sale could be a great opportunity to purchase some popular titles.

Looking ahead to October, Steam users have another sale to look forward to. October will see Steam Next Fest go live. Valve’s Next Fest events have been multi-day celebration focusing on demos, developer interviews, and livestreams. Unlike most Steam sales it is more about marketing than selling games, but you can still expect some discounts.
