Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fights its way up from the bottom of Steam’s top 10

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds continues its domination at the top of the Steam charts since its release in December last year.

This week’s chart also sees the popular Warhammer: Vermintide 2 remain in second place, while the Collector’s Edition also stayed in the top 10, moving from eighth place up to fifth.

The new sci-fi city builder game, Surviving Mars, debuts in the charts in third place, knocking Final Fantasy XV back down to fourth. Another Square Enix title, Nier: Automata, managed to stay in the charts at number six, despite the end of the publisher’s sale.



Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is this week’s chart mover. Having struggled to stay in the top 10 for the past few weeks, it jumps up three places to take seventh place. The game has been around since 2012, but currently has a sale on bundles for the game.

The open-world RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance stays in the charts, moving up one spot to eighth place.

The final place on the top 10 goes to Far Cry 5, the 11th game in the series and the fifth main title. It’s the only title in the top 10 to earn its entry based on pre-order sales alone, with the game not available until 27th March.

Rainbow Six: Siege and Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger have been knocked out of the top 10 completely.
