A fall edition of the Steam Game Festival will be held in October.

The Steam Game Festival: Autumn Edition is set to kick off on October 7 and run through October 13.

News of the festival was announced by Geoff Keighley on Twitter and confirmed by Valve.

Valve has also announced it is making the Steam Game Festival a recurring event, with two more planned in the first half of 2021.

Following the Autumn Edition, the festival will return in February 2021, and June 2021.

Like the previous Steam Game Festivals, expect plenty of free demos. During the summer edition, folks were also able to watch games being played, listen to developer talks, streams, and there were live Q&As.

During these festivals, game demos can be found on one Steam hub and each listing will take you to the respective store pages. Once there, you can learn more about the titles and download the demos.

The first Steam Game Festival was held in 2019 and took place alongside The Game Awards. A spring edition took place in March and featured over 40 demos. The third Steam Game Festival, the summer edition, was held back in June.

We posted our favorite demos which were made available during the last festival, which was a bit hard considering there were over 900 games that took part.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
