Steam offered us a useful system as of today. Especially after the recent breakthroughs of Epic Games Store, we saw a Steam that remained silent. In a way, he activated the Summer Discounts with a live program. It seems like we will wait a bit for the users’ opinions about the system, but in general, Steam seems to have launched a well thought out and useful program.
