Steam is a very popular video game platform to get great and current games for your desktop computer. What not everyone realizes, though, is that the prices are not all the same around the world. In fact, the same games in different can cost dramatically different prices. As long as you understand that different countries charge different rates for the same game, you can save quite a bit of money on your favorite Steam games. The way you can do so is simply to connect to a VPN.
If you use Steam, you may or may not be aware that games can be different prices depending on where you buy them. Let’s discuss how to actually go about getting your games for a cheaper rate. If you are in the US, the game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is $35.99 USD. However, if you connect to a server in Brazil, the same game is R$ 67.94. At this point, the Brazillian Real is worth approximately 1/4 of a US Dollar. Because of that, you end up paying $17.61 for the same game. In other words, you save about half. Of course, that is just an example.
Now that you see the differences in price, there are a few steps you need to follow to get this to work correctly. Keep in mind you will need a pre-paid Steam card. Otherwise, your payment information will not match up and the software will make you enter an address that matches your payment method.
- Sign up for ExpressVPN (30-day money back guarantee).
- After purchasing service, connect to a VPN server in Brazil.
- Proceed to the Steam website and choose your favorite game.
- Place the item in the cart, and when it asks you for a payment method, enter your pre-paid Steam card that we just mentioned.
- Download and enjoy the game for quite a bit less than you would normally pay for it.
While there are other countries that this technique will work for, we find Brazil to be the most friendly, price-wise.
