If you haven’t already drained your wallet on the Steam Winter Sale last month, Valve is back again to take your earnings with a new set of deals for the upcoming Lunar New Year. 

Appropriately dubbed the Steam Lunar New Year Sale (opens in new tab), the deals kick off at 10 am PST / 6pm GMT / 1pm EST on Thursday, January 23 (5am AEDT on January 24) and will run until the same time on Monday, January 27 (January 28 in Australia) with a few surprise gifts to be released throughout the weekend.

While most of the deals we’ve seen before have returned for the Steam Lunar New Year Sale, there are a few really good ones worth calling attention to: there’s 50% off A Plague Tale (opens in new tab) and 35% off Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (opens in new tab) and 20% off Jedi: Fallen Order (opens in new tab), all of which were among some of the best games released last year. 

This weekend you’ll also be able to snag some major discounts on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (60% off) (opens in new tab), Resident Evil 2 (67% off) (opens in new tab) and Hitman 2 (67% off) (opens in new tab) mixed in with everything else.
