Steam Lunar Sale: Civilization V, Warbands: Bushido, Polaris Sector & More!

By Joe Robinson 16 Feb 2018 0

Doesn’t seem so long ago that we were all recovering from Steam’s Winter Sale, as well as the holiday season in general. Not content to let us have disposable income for other areas of our lives, Gabe and his merry band have launched yet another sale, this time celebrating the Chinese New Year.


This event started last night and will run until Monday 19th. The Lunar Sale also comes with a significant update to the Wishlist feature, with each entry getting more real-estate. Game tags, platforms, review summary, release date… as well as powerful filter options to help you sort through what you have saved.

Before you start poking around with that though, let’s take a look at some of the best deals in the realm of Strategy…


Strategy Gamer’s 2017 Top Picks

On our Steam Curator Page, we compiled a list of our favourite games we reviewed over the course of last year. You can check it out here if you like, but the noteworthy discounts are:

The Long Journey Home (50% off)
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (50% off)
Steel Division: Normandy '44 (70 % off)
Warbands: Bushido (40% off)
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock (25% off)

Other Top Deals

Our curator page doesn’t have reviews for every game on Steam, so we’ve also taken the liberty of browsing the ‘Strategy’ section just to see what else is on offer. You won’t believe what we found! (Ok maybe you will. It's a Steam Sale after all...)

In the wake of Civilization VI’s rocky start (and it’s possible the jury’s still out on the Rise & Fall expansion), Civilization V has been doing rather well in terms of player numbers. If you haven’t done so already, now might be a great chance to jump as the Civilization V: Complete Bundle is a redonkulous 92% off.

If you’re looking for some space empire shenanigans, Endless Space 2 is 50% off, and you can pick up Polaris Sector at 51% cheaper. We recommend getting the Lumens expansion (30% off) with it though. Distant Worlds: Universe, for those who enjoy a challenge, is also 67% off.

No strategy break-down would be complete without looking at Paradox Interactive. The base games for both Stellaris and Hearts of Iron IV are 60% off, while Europa Universalis 4 is 75% off. The latter has a ton of DLC, so you’ll probably want to take a look at this.

To finish this little listicle off, you’ve also got the rather excellent Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition at 50% off, the abstract Carrier Deck at 30% off and finally the fun and grim Battle Brothers is 35% off.

I usually can’t resist picking up the odd thing during these sales, and I’ve been eyeing up the Star Wars: Empire at War Gold Pack (50% off) since I only have a physical, pre-steam era copy and this desktop doesn’t have a disc drive.

Seen any strategy gems going cheap you feel also deserve a shout out? Let us know in the comments!
