It's that time of year again when Steam users can stock up on new games to add to their library of titles, as the 2015 Steam Winter Sale has begun. Valve has pulled the trigger on the sale, which will include thousands of Windows, Mac, Linux and SteamOS games and software getting deep price cuts from now until Jan 4.

While there are numerous titles discounted as part of the sale, there are a few worth highlighting, including Telltale Games' recently completed Game of Thrones episodic series, which has a 66% price cut down to $10.19 and the games of the Sid Meier's Civilization series (discounted in the range of 45% to 75%).

We should note that the official Steam site is getting hit by a huge amount of traffic at the moment, as you might expect with this level of savings available, and as such load times are stretching to infinity. However, we expect that the site will be back up and running at full capacity very soon, so check back later if you're having trouble getting in right now.
