Weekly Steam chart: Helldivers 2 takes the lead, and Baldur’s Gate 3 leaves the top 10 after 31 weeks

After three weeks, the survival simulator Palworld lost its leadership in Steam sales chart. A new product has taken first place among paid and shareware games – the cooperative shooter Helldivers 2 from Arrowhead Game Studios.

Already on the day of the premiere, Helldivers 2 set a record, becoming Sony’s biggest release in the platform’s history. Online continues to grow: today, on the sixth day, the number of concurrent users has reached 196,089 (personal maximum). The shooter’s reviews have improved from “mixed” to “mostly positive”: the current rating, based on 33.5 thousand reviews, is 75%. However, customers continue to complain about network problems, bugs and the anti-cheat nProtect GameGuard with a bad reputation.

Other events on the chart:

  • Palworld, which dropped to second place, showed the largest online drop in Steam history in two weeks and continues to lose players (peak in the last 24 hours – 588 029 users);
  • action role-playing game Granblue Fantasy: Relink lost two positions (fifth place), but maintained the audience at approximately the same level (maximum in the last 24 hours – 108 499 Human);
  • thanks to discounts, Red Dead Redemption 2, Lethal Company and Cyberpunk 2077 returned to the top ten (seventh, ninth and tenth lines);
  • the role-playing game Persona 3 Reload and the fighting game Tekken 8, which occupied third and sixth positions, dropped to 17th and 13th, respectively;
  • the role-playing game Baldur’s Gate 3 for the first time since its release (31 weeks) dropped out of the paid top 10 (now it is 16th), but at the same time overcame the mark of 500 thousand reviews on the platform (96% positive);
  • co-op action Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League fell 43 positions to 50th, and its online presence dropped to 3131 user (the result for the last 24 hours is the anti-record of the game);
  • the second (and last to enter the chart) new product was the rhythm action Touhou Danmaku Kagura Phantasia Lost from UnknownX (32nd place), positively rated in 72% reviews (total reviews – 775) and collected 4179 person at the same time.
