As revealed by Twitter’s Steam Database [via PCGamer], the dates of Halloween, Autumn and Winter Sales will be as follows:

  • Halloween Sale: October 28–November 1
  • Autumn Sale: November 26–December 3
  • Winter Sale: December 19–January 2

@SteamDB writes: “Multiple developers posted it in multiple places despite Valve asking otherwise. But you know how that goes.”

Of course, without being verified by Valve just yet, take these date with a pinch of salt. Still, it’s worth saving up your pennies from now because even if these aren’t the exact dates, they’re definitely within a ball-park range.

Speaking of Valve, it’s been announced that active US military and veterans can treat themselves to a bunch of free games on Steam, thanks to the amazing Games to Grunts initiative.

Games to Grunts is a social connectivity program that provides video game codes to the military community – completely free of charge – as a way of showing the troops some appreciation and to help improve social connections for vets.

If you’re army personnel then you can head on over to their website, create an account using your military I.D and you’ll then be able to choose from a range of free game codes. Unfortunately, it looks like supplies are limited for each game, so if you see that something you want is available then best act quickly!

Over on the Games to Grunts website, a statement reads: “Games to Grunts is an OSD Social Connectivity program providing video games to members of the military community via digital download codes. The program was started as a direct result of the trends in the gaming industry towards digital distribution. 

“We’ve become experts at putting games in the hands of troops and have learned a lot while distributing over 1,000,000 games since 2010.”
