At the start of the new week we take a look at the first Steam sales charts for 2021. It quickly becomes clear that not too much has changed compared to the previous week. Accordingly, the badly battered role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 is still at the top. However, with the pirate MMO Sea of ​​Thieves, there is now another pursuer, as the VR glasses Valve Index slipped to third place.

The rest of the top 10 also remained largely unchanged. The comeback of the survival game Rust, which even made it to fourth place, is definitely worth mentioning. At the same time, the shooter collection Halo: The Master Chief Collection had to say goodbye to the upper regions of the Steam sales charts. Otherwise, there are only a few rather insignificant shifts within the top 10 to report. You will look in vain for further newcomers.
