Given the large number of games available on the market at this time, most players are probably guilty of buying too many, which means that some games are not played for months. Now, PC gaming retailer Steam is recovering its Steam Spring Cleaning event to encourage players to dust off their Steam library.
The Steam Spring Cleaning event is not the same as Steam Summer Sale, which had a huge discount on more than 10,000 games last year. In contrast, the Spring Cleaning event rewards participating players with badges for a limited time, encouraging them to dust off the games they already have, among other available achievements. The event will offer daily tasks that are updated every day, such as entering a previously purchased game that has not yet been played, playing a title that Steam will choose at random from the player's library and completing a couple of free games that the platform will recommend to the player.
Apart from the daily tasks, the event also offers projects that players should only perform once. Completing daily tasks and projects would give players a unique profile badge, which they can level up by completing more tasks and projects. The Steam Spring Cleaning event is now available and will end on May 28 at 10 AM PDT. Below are the available projects that players can perform during the duration of the event:
- Nostalgia: play a game that you have played more than 2 hours, but have not played in a while.
- Can not wait: play a game you bought in the last 6 months.
- Friend of confidence: play a game recommended by a friend.
- Explosion of the past: play the first game that you added to your Steam account. If you completed this task last year, play the second game on your Steam account.
- Tag contributor: play a game that uses a tag that you applied to another Steam game.
Steam also offers free games during the Spring Cleaning event, such as Dead by Daylight, Endless Space 2, Assetto Corsa, Grim Dawn, Do not starve together, Black Desert OnlineY Given for dead 2. For those who are curious to know when the annual Steam summer sale will begin, the digital game store has not yet confirmed a date. However, a recent leak revealed that the Steam 2019 Summer Sale will begin on June 25, 2019 at 10 AM PST and last two weeks.
