Best Games in the Steam Stealth Fest Sale

These are the best games you can get for under $10 in the new Steam Summer Sale.

UPDATE: The Steam Stealth Fest sale for 2023 is now over.

For the next week you can pick up a wide variety of stealthy games on Valve's Steam store at a discount thanks to the Steam Stealth Fest.

The Steam Stealth Fest is a week long sales event taking place from Monday, July 24 through July 31. It sees a range of stealth-genre titles reduced in price, including sneaky classics, ninja-themed games, indie hits, and a fair number of shooters - where it often pays to take a stealthy approach to things.

We've taken a look through all of the games currently discounted, and as usual we're picked out our highlights of the very best sub-ten dollar stealth games that you can snag in the Steam Stealth Fest sale. Oh, and most of the recommendations here will work on the Steam Deck too.

Right, so let's get to it — here are the best stealth game bargains that you can grab in the 2023 Steam Stealth Fest sale.

👀 Steam Stealth Fest Sale Bargains:

Splinter Cell Blacklist on Steam Deck

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist - $7.49

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

Ubisoft's Splinter Cell sure has been away for far too long huh? Anyway, the latest game, Blacklist, is nearly a decade old now, so if you have a desire for some Sam Fisher spymaster action this 2013 stealth action game is your most recent choice.

It's currently got 75% off, its Steam Deck 'playable', and as Polygon said in their review, it "serves as an anthology of all of Splinter Cell's best ideas" — so good stuff for fans of sneaking.

The very first Splinter Cell game from 2003 is also discounted down to just $2.49 too if you wanna see what started the series — it's Steam Deck 'playable' too.

‣ Splinter Cell Blacklist on Steam

The Swindle on Steam Deck

The Swindle - $2.24

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Verified

I originally played this on the Nintendo Switch and had a blast with it. It's all about making fast-paced decision whilst you carry out a number of increasingly elaborate crime capers. You need to break into randomly-generated buildings, hack systems, steal cash, and get out before the police show up and end it all.

It's a satisfying steampunk blend of stealth, and action platformer that has a rewarding risk and reward gameplay loop.

Pocket Gamer called it a "complicated swirl of heists and capers which will leave you with sweaty palms" — all good stealth should have you sweating, no?

Steam Deck verified, and less than the price of a coffee. Bargain.

‣ The Swindle for Steam Deck

Plague Tale: Innocence on Steam Deck

A Plague Tale: Innocence - $7.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

This 2019 action adventure has plenty of stealth sections — the game encourages you to sneak past opponents and avoid confrontations, particularly when you are ill-equipped to deal with those you would otherwise face.

It's an award-winning story-rich, cinematic tale about the plague in 14th century France. The 2022 follow-up is also on sale, but comes in at $25.

‣ A Plague Tale: Innocence on Steam

Party Hard on Steam

Party Hard - $1.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

A 2015 award-winning 2D stealth strategy game with a dark sense of humour. It's currently less than two bucks.

Your job is to stop your neighbours from partying at 3am, by any means necessary, but just don't get caught of course. The Steam Deck Verified follow-up from 2018 is also on sale right now.

‣ Party Hard on Steam

Alien Isolation on Steam Deck

Alien: Isolation - $7.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Verified

A terrifying award-winning survival horror game that captures the atmosphere of the Alien movies. You're gonna wanna sneak past a Xenomorph. This celebrated game from 2014 is available on its own or in a bundle that's also worth a look.

‣ Alien Isolation on Steam Deck

Thief Simulator for Steam Deck

Thief Simulator - $2.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

This 3D sandbox simulation game is essentially a manual on how to carry out crimes. Be that breaking into someones home, picking locks, opening safes, carjacking... it's all here. Yes, you even need to hide if you get caught. Better to do it on your Steam Deck than in real life...

‣ Thief Simulator on Steam

Sniper Elite 4 on Steam

Sniper Elite 4 - $5.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Verified

There's a huge 90% discount (usually $59) on this 2017 sharp shooting action game.

It's a World War 2 tactical shooter that's known for its signature 'epic' long shots — I guess there's nothing more stealthy than taking out an opponent from half a mile away.

If you always grab the sniper when playing shooters you'll love this well received strategic hit. It's Steam Deck verified. (Sniper Elite III from 2014 is also on sale for just $2.99, although that's only marked as Steam Deck 'Playable')

‣ Sniper Elite 4 for Steam Deck

Serial Cleaner for Steam Deck

Serial Cleaner - $1.49

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Verified

You're tasked with cleaning up after the mob. You've gotta get in, clean up and get out all without leaving a trace of any evidence. A stylish award-winning 2D action-stealth game for less than two bucks, and it's Steam Deck Verified — good stuff.

‣ Serial Cleaner on Steam Deck

Thief - $2.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

There's 85% off this 2014 hit stealth action reboot right now. In it you play as a 'professional' thief who sets out on various missions all with a focus on stealing from the rich. Satisfying stealth gameplay here.

‣ Thief on Steam

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - $4.49

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

This shooter received a heap of praise when it first debuted back in 2016. It's a stylish, smart, sci-fi stealth action game in which you play as covert operative Adam Jensen — someone who finds themselves forced to operate in a world that has "grown to despise his kind".

One of 2016s best for less than five bucks.

‣ Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on Steam

Assassin's Creed Origins on Steam Deck

Assassin's Creed Origins - $8.99

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

Ok, this sale has a ton of Assassin's Creed games on discount, including Odyssey, Valhalla, Black Flag and others — you are spoilt for choice as an AC fan. This entry from 2017 gets a lot right, and is often considered one of the series best. It's currently 85% off, meaning you can snag it for under ten bucks.

‣ Assassin's Creed Origins on Steam

Watch Dogs on Steam

Watch Dogs - $4.49

🎮 Steam Deck compatibility: Playable

Ubisoft apply their open-world learnings from Assassin's Creed to a more modern setting. The result is Watch_Dogs, a 2014 action game set in Chicago in which you can pretty much hack anything. You know that Hackerman gif? Basically that in video game form.

‣ Watch Dogs on Steam
