RPG Action Elden Ring fourth week in a row holds #1 on the Steam sales chart. Thanks to the discount, It Takes Two and Monster Hunter Rise returned to the top 5 after a long absence.
Elden Ring continues to show impressive user retention rates. March 13 action role-playing game collected 795 830 players at the same time, and in the last 24 hours the online high was 694,446 (the all-time record is 953,426). Another edition was placed eighth. Last week, Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that the project’s cumulative shipments and digital sales exceeded 12 million copies across all platforms.
Elden Ring has received over 263,000 reviews on Steam and is rated 87%. In a review for 3DNews, Ivan Byshonkov gave the game a 7.5 out of 10 rating. “FromSoftware makes no attempt to offer anything new, just trampling on the familiar glade where the Souls series has long settled – yes, the glade is the size of an entire kingdom by now, but that only highlights the flaws and dampens the benefits of the well-known formula”he wrote.
Second place for two consecutive weeks is taken by Steam Deck. Late last week, the device gained support for the Xbox Cloud Gaming cloud service through the Microsoft Edge browser. Valve had previously postponed new deliveries to the third quarter of 2022.

That number has also increased many times over for Monster Hunter Rise, which is available to buy through tonight 34% cheaper: In the last 24 hours, the number of simultaneous players has increased to 27 758.
50 percent discount helped to stay in the seventh series of Red Dead Redemption 2. In the last 24 hours, the action has spread 33 699 concurrent users (max since release – 55,271). The promotion ends on March 24th.
The cooperative sandbox with elements of the survival simulator Core Keeper confirms the status of a new indie hit: although the game lost one position, a new online top record was set on March 19 (34 508).
