‘Til all are one, it’s only the weekly Steam charts! These are the ten games which sold best on Steam last week.
It’s one of those ‘just copied and pasted all the HTML from last week’ kind of weeks. This is GOOD because I am lazy but BAD because there is little new to say. Fortunately, I’ve brought a friend along with me this time.
What was until recently Steam’s best-selling new game of 2017 slopes towards the bottom reaches of the top ten, although it may return once the first DLC is released on PC. Platform exclusivity bobbins has sadly restricted it to PS4 until now. I don’t know about you, but I finished the game on PC with a desperate thirst for me, and the longer I have to wait to slake that thirst, the more I start thinking about other drinks instead. Games, I mean. Games. It’s now far less sure a thing than it was that I’ll dive back into Resi 7 – a great shame that all these backroom deals cause this sort of thing.
9. For Honor
Betcha this is going to be another long-tail game for Ubisoft, as Rainbow Six Siege and Division have proven to be. Feels like yesterday we are all screeching “fucked it!” when they announced they were giving Assassin’s Creed a year off after exhausting the series with too many too sequels too quickly, but I imagine this new biz models o’theirs has them rolling around in vaster piles of cash than ever before. When AssCreed does return, look for it to do something similar, I’ll bet.
8. For Honor
Though For Honor is released this very day, both these entries are for pre-orders. That whole ‘last week’ thing I keep having to remind people about, y’see. One of these entries is probably the pre-order for the £15 pricier Deluxe Edition, which includes a few bonus hats and an XP boost – but it might be for the £30 pricier Gold Edition, which also includes a season pass.
FUN FACT: I was going to review this, but Brendy wanted to review it more, so I let him. This is because I am The Best Person Ever.
Help me, amazing special friend!
5. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Year 2 Pass
A year and a bit ago, Siege was seen as a bit of a bungled launch,but now look at it. In the top ten again – oops, spoilers I guess – and so is its second year of DLC. Like I say – Assassin’s Creed ain’t no thing compared to this stuff. Unfortunately this does mean that Siege now officially enters the Oh God Not This Again category.
1. Conan Exiles
I’m surprised/impressed. I’d figured this was a one-week-and-done affair, as the novelty of swingin’ snorkers wore off and the easily amused wandered off in search of new entertainment. Seems that something more fundamental Funcom’s barbaric multiplayer survival game is clearly clicking for people though, and it’s hanging on strong despite griping about lag and bugs. Conangratulations, Funcom.
