Steam Link, Steam's slick streaming box that allows you to play your PC games easily on your television, is currently retailing for £2. 

That is a 95% saving and, if you haven't already got one of these streaming boxes, it is a no-brainer purchase.

4. Assassin's Creed Origins

Assassin's Creed Origins Steam Summer Sale deals

Assassin's Creed Origins is very much a return to form for the long-running stab-em-up franchise, with the makers completely overhauling the combat system to great effect.

It looks absolutely stunning, too, especially if you can play it in 4K, and at a 50% off price of just £24.99 right now, is an incredibly tempting proposition if you are on the market for a quality third-person action adventure.

We loved Origins on review, praising the fact that it "innovates in all the right places", and spent many hours exploring its massive world map, discovering its myriad of collectables, and - naturally - assassinating the protagonist's many enemies.

5. Prey

Prey Steam Summer Sale deals

It's madness that Prey is currently reduced in the Steam Summer Sale 2018 down to just £9.99, a big fat saving of 50%, and that's because it is one of the most refreshing, old-school shooters of the past 5 years.

Awakening aboard the Talos I space station, which is orbiting the moon in the year 2032, you soon find that not only is the space station overrun with hostile aliens, but that you are part of an experiment that could have big implications on the future of humanity.

Evoking classic titles like System Shock, Prey is a must play title for action and survival horror fans.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Steam Summer Sale deals

This cracking Nazi-slaying FPS blew T3 away on release, and has recently being followed up by an equally good sequel as well in the form of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

The gun-stuffed, gore-tastic, Nazi-killing simulator is a must play though for fans of the first person shooter genre and, thanks to the Steam Summer Sale, that has just got easier than ever.

That's because Wolfenstein: The New Order is currently 50% off in the Steam store, retailing for a very affordable £7.49. That's less than a disappointing sandwich in Shoreditch - and trust us, The New Order does not disappoint!

Machine Games don't just deliver top shooting action, either, with Wolfenstein delivering an engaging story about an alternate history where Nazi Germany won World War II that is littered with interesting characters, too.

8. Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition

FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION Steam Summer Sale 2018

Arguably the best Final Fantasy game in years, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition delivers the epic original game, where Noctis and his royal guard are forced to go on an epic quest to reclaim his birthright as ruler of Accordo, as well as a wealth of bonus content and PC-exclusive features.

The game supports ultra high-resolution graphical options as well, with HDR 10 capable of being enabled if you have the hardware to deal with it, and the game simply looks stunning when cranked up to maximum fidelity.

Indeed, this is arguably the ultimate edition of an already epic game, so the fact that is can now be scored for only £17.49 in the Steam Summer Sale thanks to a tasty 50 per cent discount, is really very most welcome.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Steam Summer Sale

We can't wait for CD Projekt Red's next game, the E3 2018-crushing Cyberpunk 2077, however, until that lands there is no better way to pass the time than by getting stuck into the studio's biggest hit to date, the astoundingly good The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

And, in this Game of the Year Edition, you not only get the massive original game but also the two exquisite DLC add-on packs in the form of Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, too.

Seriously, at a stupidly affordable £13.99 in the Steam Summer Sale, that's a gigantic 60 per cent price reduction, you would be letting yourself down as a PC gamer if you didn't pick this up. Hell, even if you already played the game on console you should still pick this version up, as it looks and runs best and simply is the ultimate version.
