What are the best-selling games in the Steam charts this week? Every week PCGamesN recount the highest-performing titles on Valve’s platform, from the ten Steam top sellers to the Steam games with the most concurrent players. Why? Because knowing what games people are flocking to is useful for discovering new titles and reminding us of the ones we really ought to have tried by now.
Every week we assemble a list of the top ten games for each category along with a brief analysis of the week’s biggest surprises.
Steam top sellers
Here are this week’s Steam top sellers:
- GTA 5
- Conan Exiles
- The Forest
- Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
- Rocket League
- Stardew Valley
- Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia
- Shadow Warrior 2
Aside from PUBG, GTA 5, and Rocket League, this week’s Steam top sellers are a breath of fresh air, with a number of Early Access games, like Conan Exiles and The Forest, finally celebrating their 1.0 release, indies like Frostpunk still selling admirably, and some new games in the form of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia. Shadow Warrior 2 creeps into the bottom of the pack thanks to Devolver Digital’s hefty Steam sale.
Steam charts by concurrent players
Here are this week’s Steam charts:
- Dota 2
- Rainbow Six Siege
- GTA 5
- Team Fortress 2
- Football Manager 2018
- Ark: Survival Evolved
Very few notable changes to the Steam Charts by concurrent players. Payday 2 has dropped out of the charts, replaced by Rust, which has recently received a sizable update. Grand Theft Auto has also climbed a few places thanks to a 50% discount that’s due to end on May 15.
