Can Rust hold onto the top spot?

We start the new week with our mandatory look at the current Steam sales charts. The currently extremely popular survival game Rust was only able to grab the top spot last week. It is still there and was able to successfully repel the attacks of the pursuers. Accordingly, the VR headset Valve Index can still be found in second place – followed by the role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 in third place.

It gets a little more interesting and, above all, more varied in the stands behind. So suddenly in fourth place is the Chinese game Heroes of the Three Kingdoms 8, which comes from the developer studio Userjoy Technologies. The pirate MMO Sea of ​​Thieves, on the other hand, has lost some ground and is now "only" in tenth place. The roguelike game Hades was completely thrown out of the top 10. Otherwise, there are only a few changes to report, so not much has changed compared to the previous week.
