Survival simulator Sons of the Forest leads for the second straight week despite a noticeable drop in online numbers. The highlight of the last day was 123 346 Users (personal record – 414,257).

Last week’s biggest hit was the role-playing action Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty from Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo.

The ratings remain “mostly negative” (rating – 38% based on almost 11,000 reviews) due to poor optimization and unresolved issues with the camera when using the keyboard and mouse, but the game itself is rated positively.

Destiny 2’s Lightfall DLC started in fifth place.
