One of the questions this week is whether Sea of Thieves was able to defend the top spot on the Steam sales charts. The short variant of the answer is: yes. But the current top 10 are definitely worth a closer look, as a lot has happened compared to the previous week.
Just last week, the pirate MMO Sea of Thieves topped the Steam sales charts, displacing Civilization 6. But what about a week later? The answer was found relatively quickly, because Sea of Thieves was able to successfully defend the steam throne and is therefore still in first place.
The start of the pre-orders for the Beyond Light edition of the online shooter Destiny 2 could not change anything, which did make it to second place. By the way, in third place is the Simulatio Satifactory, which celebrated a very successful comeback in the top 10. One of the new features is Persona 4 Golden, which was able to move directly to fourth place. However, Deep Rock Galactic and Ori and the Will of the Wisps were flown out. The VR headset Valve Index and the battle royale shooter Playerunknown's Battlegrounds have also lost some ground.
Incidentally, the amount of sales achieved is decisive for the placement of the individual games in the Steam sales charts. The charts are weekly in one XML feed on Steam spent. The following charts refer to the period from June 8 to June 14, 2020:
- Sea of Thieves
- Destiny 2: Beyond Light Deluxe Edition
- Persona 4 Golden
- Command & Conquer Remastered Collection
- Valve Index VR Kit
- Europa Universalis 4: Emperor
