The holidays are fast approaching and gamers are already excited for the upcoming Steam Winter Sale 2016. Valve has yet to make an official announcement about the start of the Steam Holiday Sale 2016, but according to reports, it should kick off next week. And it appears that fans got an early treat when Steam Holiday Sale 2016 game deals have been leaked.

GamenGuide previously reported some of the games expected to have discounts in the upcoming 2016 Steam Winter Sale - some of them turned out to be true. According to TechPlz, Valve has unwittingly revealed the Steam Holiday Sale 2016 gaming deals when it updated its website. Data miners then extracted this list and released it to the public, revealing some of the most awesome deals starting on Dec. 22, 2016 until Jan. 2, 2017.

The extracted list revealed that 2016's big first-person shooter release, "Battlefield," will get a 14 per cent discount. Another is also a first-person shooter from Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts, "Titanfall 2," which will reportedly get 14 per cent discount as well. Also included in the datamined Steam Winter Sale 2016 game list is "Batman: Arkham Knight," which will get 50 per cent off.

"Civilization VI" is a game that was previously reported to be part of the Steam Winter Sale 2016 game deals. The turn-based strategy game is said to have a 15 per cent discount next week. The popular, "Watch Dogs 2," which was released on Nov. 15, will have a 20 per cent discount. Other games to be offered at lower prices in the 2016 Steam Holiday Sale include "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare," "Gears of War 4," "NBA 2K17" and "Elder Scrolls: Skyrim" Special Edition, but they details on their prices have not been revealed.

It's not Valve's habit to announce ahead when the Steam Winter Sale 2016 will start, but the countdown on SteamDB shows it all that the hotly anticipated 2016 Steam Holiday Sale is fast approaching. Fans should know more about other game deals as the start date of the sale nears.
