Time-warping micro-strategy Into The Breach is propelled to top spot on both the Humble Store and GOG during its debut week, while pre-orders push Warhammer: Vermintide II high on Steam, Humble, GamersGate and Fanatical ahead of a March 8 launch.

The small-team studio behind spacefaring challenge FTL: Faster Than Light have successfully launched their sophomore title, Into The Breach.

Players command a squad of giant mechanised infantry and are charged with fending off oversized insectoid aliens.

Outnumbered by the enemy hordes, players are invited to approach each restricted battlefield as a puzzle to solve, inciting aliens to beat each other up rather than lay waste to human cities.

Absent from Steam's weekly top five (it's in 7th place), Into The Breach matched high-flying critical appraisals with number one slots on both Humble and GOG by during its week of release.

Looking ahead, co-op action game Warhammer: Vermintide 2 promises an intense medieval fantasy action-adventure for teams of up to four, and can be found staking out top five positions on the Steam, Humble, GamersGate and Fanatical storefronts in advance of its March 8 launch.

High levels of anticipation are based not only on the reputation of its 2015 predecessor but also several beta phases for those with valid pre-orders.

As with Vermintide 2, pre-orders for sci-fi fantasy epic Final Fantasy XV were responsible for the enthusiastic welcome extended to its March 6 PC edition – the game has been out for over a year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

As of March 4, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been top of Steam's revenue-based bestseller chart for 49 consecutive weeks.
