The Best Summer Games to Play on Steam in 2024

Hades 2

With Hades cementing itself as one of the best roguelike games ever, their sequel is every bit as good as the first one. Hades 2 just went on early access in 2024, and the updates are starting to roll up. Battle the Titan of TIme as the Immortal Princess of the Underworld, Melinoë, in this action-packed God-slaying dungeon crawler. If you want a challenging game that you can easily pick up and play, Hades 2 is the best choice.

Palworld

Palworld took the world by storm in 2024, and on July 27, 2024, it received its first major update, called the Sakurajima update. Palworld is an open-world creature-collecting game with a deep and intricate survival-crafting system. You’ll spend hundreds of hours discovering and collecting new Pals and take another hundred hours building, crafting, and managing your base for you and your Pals. For those who have already played Palworld, the update might entice you to make another playthrough with all the new additions.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree

Elden Ring is the pinnacle of all souls-like games, and it just released its first major expansion (DLC), Shadow of the Erdtree. The expansion promises to deliver challenges for both casual and souls-like veterans. There are at least ten new bosses in the expansion, some even harder than the infamous Malenia boss.

Last Epoch

Last Epoch has made a name for itself in the highly competitive ARPG genre. ARPG enthusiasts call it the “middle ground” for Diablo and Path of Exile players. Since players find Diablo 4 too casual and Path of Exile too complicated, Last Epoch finds itself in the middle as a well-balanced ARPG. The game just released its Harbinger of Ruin patch, making it a great entry point for ARPG players to try in the summer.

Street Fighter 6

Street Fighter 6 needs no introduction, as it is the most iconic fighting game to date. While the game launched back in 2023, the game constantly added new characters to the game, with M. Bison joining this summer. If you can grab this awesome game at a discount on Steam’s summer sale, you can catch the character passes, too. The game is perfect for those who love fighting games and may be something you can play on your Steam Deck on the go.

Spy X Anya: Operation Memories

Spy X Anya: Operation Memories is a surprising entry on the list, but more so for its release on Steam. Games like these usually are exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, but Steam players will also have to buy and play the game on their PC. The game is based on the popular anime & manga series Spy X Family. You’ll play from the perspective of Anya Forger, going through her daily life along with Yor and Loid Forger. She is tasked with creating a photo diary and collecting memories from other exciting locations. Apart from the adventure, there are several minigames you can play as well.
