Steam “Spring Cleaning” Event Now Live, Featuring Special Free-To-Play Weekend
Valve has revealed a special Steam event aimed at getting players to play through some of their backlogged games. Aptly called the “Spring Cleaning” event, it is now live and features daily tasks and projects that reward players with profile badge progress for errands completed.
“Dust off that library of games and uncover something new, during the Steam Spring Cleaning Event! Earn a new badge for your Steam profile by playing selected games already in your Steam library, or by trying out something new from an assortment of games with a great history on Steam available for free this weekend!”
The Spring Cleaning event runs now through the 28th, here’s how it works:
- Choose a Task or a Project
- Tasks are daily, Projects are a one-time only deal
- Play a specific game
- Go through that backlog and find a qualifying that that’s on the Spring Cleaning list
- Earn Trophies and a new Profile Badge
- Earn five trophies to unlock a unique profile badge. Level it up by completing more tasks and unlocking even more trophies.
The daily tasks and projects are fairly numerous. Participants can do the daily tasks, of course, daily, and projects can only be completed once. In addition to the badge progress tasks, Steam is offering several free-to-play games throughout the weekend, such as Dead by Daylight and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Check out the full list below:
- Borderlands 2
- Castle Crashers
- Cities Skylines

As a reminder, the Steam Spring Cleaning event runs now through May 28th, so hop to it if you’re looking to try out some new games, or play some old ones for badge progress.
