The 2015 Steam Winter Sale has begun. As earlier reports indicated, the sale period started today, December 22, and will run for two weeks through January 4.
In a news release, Valve said there will be discounts on "thousands of games and software." You can also collect Winter Sale-themed trading cards only available during the sale period.
Some good deals include The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for $5, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for $30, Ark: Survival Evolved for $18, and Rocket League for $14.
In addition, Valve is introducing the first-ever Steam Sale comic, called "Gingerbread Jake In: North Pole Noir." A new page from the comic will be revealed every day during the sale.
Like the Fall sale before it, it looks like the Steam Winter sale won't include rotating daily deals--that means what's on offer now may be all you'll see for the duration of the sale.
