How to unlock the Steam 3000 Special Profile
Congratulations! You completed all ten Clorthax riddles for the Steam Summer Sale 2022 event. Now return to the Steam Store featured page and scroll all the way down to read a new message. You will receive a special profile called Steam 3000, which you can apply to your Steam account when you edit your profile.
The Steam Summer Sale 2022 began on June 23 and ends on July 7, 2022 at 10 am PST. You will only get one free trading card per day from the Discovery Queue, unlike in previous years where you can unlock three. Some players are also disappointed that the older Call of Duty games are still expensive. And if you were expecting a big discount on the Souls-like games, prepare to be disappointed because Bandai Namco did not mark down the prices of the Dark Souls trilogy. Aside from that, everything else is pretty much the same as any Steam Summer Sale.
Time to bust out your savings—assuming you still have some left—and snag those games that are on sale for up to 80% off.
