You probably already learned this from finding that dozens of games on your wishlist were on sale, but the Steam Winter Sale is live now on the platform. That means that you can buy games for yourself or your friends on the cheap, and naturally, that includes some MMOs of note on the overall list. Black Desert is down to a $3 purchase price, for example, and The Elder Scrolls Online will just set you back a cool $8. (TESO has another sale going right now as well, even.) And both of those games are buy-to-play.
Aside from that, you can find several deals on similarly buy-to-play titles across the storefront, ranging from Torchlight III (down to $20) to Fall Guys (down to $16). If there’s a game you’ve had your eye on, best to search it out and check out any discounts, but those four alone will likely bring you plenty of enjoyment if you’ve somehow missed them up to this point. It’s like Christmas very slightly before Christmas!
