The awards were broken down into the following categories: Game of the Year, VR Game of the Year, Labour of Love, Better With Friends, Most Innovative, Outstanding Story-Rich Game, Best Game You Suck At and Outstanding Visual Style.
Last year’s Autumn Sale message reads: “The 2020 Steam Autumn Sale is now live, with great deals across the Steam catalog through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, ending at 10am Pacific on Tuesday, December 1st.
“Discover featured titles and franchises, personalized recommendations, plus browse top titles by tag when you shop the Autumn Sale now!
“Join us in our fifth annual Steam Awards by nominating your favorite new games of 2020 across 10 categories, and earn profile XP and badges for participating! Your nominations will help determine the finalists for each category.
“In December, you can vote on the winners for each category during the Steam Winter Sale. Select your nominations today.”
Looking at the type of discounts Steam players may be about to get, last year’s Steam Autumn sale took money off titles such as Gears 5, Code Vein, Cities: Skylines and The Crew 2.
Fans can expect more news regarding the launch of the Steam Black Friday 2021 Sale on November 24.
