In-depth battle royale SCUM, quirky and engrossing healthcare business sim Two Point Hospital, and action adventure Monster Hunter World continue to top the Steam charts, while Destiny 2 swamps the Humble Store following the release of second-year expansion Forsaken.

Released two weeks beforehand, last-person-standing survival game SCUM and lighthearted hospital management challenge Two Point Hospital remain hot favourites on the Steam store chart, popping up in first and third positions respectively.

The restorative Two Point Hospital, which is half the price of a self-descriptive Monster Hunter World, swaps places with the latter on Steam's revenue-based ranking, while SCUM, which is as much about injury as it is healing, is half as dear again as Two Point, but nevertheless stayed lodged in top spot.

Over on the Humble Store, which sells game activation codes for not only Steam but several other platforms such as Ubisoft's UPlay and CD Projekt's GOG, it's Activision's multiplayer sci-fi shooter Destiny 2 that takes up the store's top three places.

The base game, first released in 2017, was included as part of June's US$12 (RM49.75) Humble Monthly Bundle subscription pack, redeemable not on Steam but through Activision's Battle.net client.

Since its inclusion, the associated Destiny 2 Year One expansion pass has remained a firm favourite with Humble customers, while a separate Legendary Collection bundle, seen here in second place, includes the base game, Year One pass, and Sept 4's new expansion Forsaken. – AFP Relaxnews
