Valve’s Steam marketplace is holding a “spring cleaning” event for the next few days focusing on clearing out players’ backlogs and offering some full games to freely play.
The Spring Cleaning event begins today and ends on Tuesday, May 28 at 1 p.m. ET. Several Steam games are available to download and play for free during the event, and are currently on sale up to 75% discount for those that want to keep them. The list of seven games are:
- Assetto Corsa
- Black Desert Online
- Dead By Daylight
- Don’t Starve Together
- Endless Space 2
- Grim Dawn
- Left 4 Dead 2
Playing certain Steam games during the event will also unlock trophies to earn and level up a unique profile badge. Some of the tasks include playing a game purchased in the last six months, one recommended by a friend, one of the free games for the weekend, and the very first game added to the Steam account.
The idea is to get users to rediscover certain games in their Steam libraries that have been overlooked or not played at all, considering some have thousands of games in their libraries or have a habit of buying games cheap through the various Steam seasonal sales and then not playing them.
The Spring Cleaning event is not a full blown sale on the entire catalog, but the annual summer sale usually begins in June.
