Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2018 lasts just a few days

We know from past Steam sales that recent game launches generally don't get discounts. For example you can find games in the sale with discounts of 25, 50, or 75 per cent or more off.

Today we rolled out an update giving you more control over your Steam Wishlist. Highlights include Heat Signature for $10, Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition for $36, Overcooked for $5.77, Ark: Survival Evolved for $20, Rocket League for $12, and Planet Coaster for $11.24. Many have dozens of games in their wishlist, but what if you're only in the mood for an RPG?

Valve has overhauled Steam's wishlist feature, introducing new filters and sorting options created to make it easier for users to keep track of the games they're most interested in. Users can also exclude early access, pre-release, and VR-only titles, and you have the option of only showing games that can be purchased with the amount in your Steam Wallet.

The Wishlist can also be sorted by tags or genres, so now Steam displays the top-ranked tags for each item on the list. This is especially handy when you have 100 or more games on the list and you want to browse by whether a title is on sale.

Other filters include certain price thresholds, operating system support and whether they're on sale or not.

You can check out the new features on your Steam wishlist right now.

At the time of writing the wishlist filters and sorting improvements weren't available to me on the web or via the Steam client app unless I followed the link from the home page banner. In some cases, you can add a title directly to your cart.
