The Steam Next Fest is launching today, with Steam users getting the chance to try out hundreds of demos for free. The Steam Next Fest is expected to have a 6pm BST start time on Wednesday June 16, which is 10pm pacific time and 7am eastern time. Besides tonnes of free demos, the Steam Next Fest – which runs until June 22 – also features developer live streams and gives gamers the chance to chat with devs about upcoming titles.
If this all sounds a bit familiar then that’s because the Steam Next Fest is the renamed Steam Game Festival.
The Steam Next Fest runs from June 16 to June 22, with the Steam Summer Sale 2021 rumoured to be kicking off not long afterwards.
The Steam Summer Sale 2021 is expected to have a launch date of Thursday June 24.
Speaking about the Steam Next Fest, Valve said: “Celebrating upcoming games, all week long. Six days, hundreds of demos, oodles of livestreams.
“We’ve renamed the Steam Game Festival to more directly communicate its focus: Announcing Steam Next Fest, a multi-day celebration of upcoming games.
“Explore and play hundreds of game demos, watch developer live streams, and chat with the teams about their games in progress, coming soon to Steam.”
