The Steam Lunar New Year Sale is live, new wishlist looks brilliant

  • Steam's Lunar New Year sale is supposed to kick off today

You will be able to see Top-ranked tags for wishlisted items and this way, it will be easier to find similar games. We know from past Steam sales that recent game launches generally don't get discounts. Wishlists can now be sorted by discounts, which should make finding the best discounts during a big Steam sale much easier.

Other filters include certain price thresholds, operating system support and whether they're on sale or not.

Many players have reported that they find a promising game now in Early Access that they want to keep track of, but aren't interested in buying until the game has transitioned to full release. Specifically, the new wishlist makes it possible to filter out all Early Access games, should you be the kind of person who'd rather wait for Version 1.0, and it's likewise possible to hide games that have a Steam page but aren't now available to purchase.

Unreleased games added to the Wishlist will now have a release date noted.

For instance, you now have the ability to filter your wishlist by genre, meaning that you can more easily whittle down your options when you're in the mood to play a specific kind of game.

Note: The combination of filters and sort-orders that you pick will automatically save and apply when you visit your Wishlist again in the future. This is especially handy when you have 100 or more games on the list and you want to browse by whether a title is on sale.

You can check out the new features on your Steam wishlist right now. You simply need to click one of the tags displayed next to a game to hide titles that don't share that tag.

Another feature is the ability to add games straight to your cart from the Wishlist, rather than being directed to their store page first.
