Steam’s top releases for May range from Total War: Three Kingdoms to Swag and Sorcery

Steam hosts a tremendous number of new game releases every day – such that it’s basically impossible to keep track of everything that’s coming out. Thankfully, Valve has begun to provide us with a regular list of the best-selling new Steam releases every month, continuing a new tradition the company kicked off in April.

As with last month’s selection, the criteria is pretty particular. These are the 20 games that generated the most revenue in the first two weeks after release. Valve’s not offering any insight into exactly how much any of these games individually sold, and the list is only ordered by release date. It’s a safe bet that Total War: Three Kingdoms sales are on top, given everything we know about that game’s astronomical success.

The remainder of the list ranges from big publisher releases like Rage 2 and Team Sonic Racing to games coming out of Early Access like Beat Saber and Battalion 1944. We’ve also got smaller titles like Rise of Industry and Swag and Sorcery rounding out the ‘maybe you haven’t heard of this’ section of the list. And, of course, there’s Five Nights at Freddy’s VR.

Here’s the full list, ordered by release date.

Rise of Industry
Swag and Sorcery
Yakuza Kiwami 2
A Plague Tale: Innocence
Rage 2
Beat Saber
Team Sonic Racing
Battalion 1944
Total War: Three Kingdoms

XERA: Survival
Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted
Layers of Fear 2
SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest
Void Bastards
Assetto Corsa Competizione
Conan Unconquered
Conqueror’s Blade
Deathgarden: Bloodharvest
Warhammer: Chaosbane

In addition to that, Valve also detailed the top free game launches by their player count peak in the first two weeks. Those include Conqueror’s Blade, Splitgate: Arena Warfare, Minion Masters, Eden Rising and Never Split the Party. A couple of those titles also hit the top-selling list above, so clearly people enjoyed them enough to drop money on them.
