In the absence of any enormous PC game releases, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
reclaimed Steam's peak while a sale-price No Man's Sky
soared to first on Humble and Monster Hunter: World
Battle royale icon PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
rolled out a seasonal Korean festival event, implemented a ranking system, and introduced the flare gun as a standard piece of equipment in a week that saw it become Steam's best selling title, by revenue.
It was a relatively minor week in terms of new PC game releases, with The Bard's Tale IV
failing to make a dent on the Steam top ten.
Instead, a short-term sale on NieR:Automata
saw the 2017 favourite rise back up the charts for a place in among recent hits Shadow of the Tomb Raider
, Monster Hunter: World
, and Battle Royale iteration SCUM
While Monster Hunter: World
climbs back to first on GamersGate and the space exploration of No Man's Sky
overtakes sci-fi shooter Destiny 2
on Humble, the Fanatical store brings a week-long bundle event to a close with its Slayer Bundle, whose full contents include the highly-rated Styx: Master Of Shadows
, The Sexy Brutale
, The Lion's Song
and 14 more.
On the subject of big PC releases (and Fanatical's chart), the ahistorical anime-style strategy Valkyria Chronicles 4
arrives on Sept 25 after extending the former PlayStation-exclusive franchise's fanbase through a 2016 re-release of 2008's original Valkyria Chronicles
It's also being released on PlayStation 4 worldwide after a favourable Japanese reception earlier in the year, with Xbox One and Nintendo Switch editions as well. – AFP Relaxnews
