CHARTS: 30% discount helps Call of Duty rise up Steam Top Ten

Call of Duty shot up five places in the Steam charts last week.

The shooter was the ninth biggest seller last week, rising up to No.4 thanks to a 30 per cent price cut for this year's Modern Warfare 3. That discount has come six weeks after that game's release.

The Steam Deck was once again the biggest seller on the platform, while fellow Valve creation Counter-Strike 2 charted in second place once again.

Horror co-op title Lethal Company rose up one position to No.3, while Baldur's Gate 3 shot up five places from tenth to fifth week-on-week. They come in ahead of new free-to-play shooter, The Finals, which rose from seventh to sixth in its second week on sale. Valve's Dota 2 returns to the Top Ten at No.7 thanks to the new Frostivus 2023 update, while House Flipper 2 makes its debut in eighth place following its December 14th release.

Rounding off the Top Ten this week at PUBG: Battlegrounds in ninth, a big drop from last week's No.3, and new Arc System Works fighter Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising, which launched on December 14th.
