Monster Hunter: World preorders strike another killer blow in this week’s Steam Top Ten

Monster Hunter: World preorders strike another killer blow in this week’s Steam Top Ten

Monster Hunter: World’s second week of pre-purchase marks its second week at the head of the weekly Steam Top Ten.

Pre-orders pushed Capcom’s long-awaited PC port to No.1 last week, and excitement hasn’t wavered since. Monster Hunter: World is due to drop on PC on August 9th, only a little over half a year after its console launch in January.

A recent contender in the hotly-contested battle royale space, Islands of Nyne drops down one space week-on-week to take the No.4 spot this week. So far, the sci-fi survival shooter seems to be carving out its own niche in a genre that’s already taken some high-profile casualties.

With a developer looking for a “cleaner conscience”, Clicker Heroes 2 drops it’s predecessor’s free-to-play model and launched into Early Access last monday with a full $30 price tag. The idle RPG jumps into No.6 this week.

Jurassic World Evolution sees a small downturn in visitors, dropping a place to take No.7. Raft gently coasts along, closing out the list in tenth - three places downstream from it’s seventh-place showing last week.

Finally, Enter the Gungeon bursts guns-blazing into the Steam Top Ten this week, picking up the No. 9 spot. The massive, free Advanced Gungeons and Draguns update brings back demand for Dodge Roll’s roguelike shooter.

Below is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending July 21st.

  1. Monster Hunter: World, Capcom
  2. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp
  3. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
  4. Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale, Define Human Studios
  5. Event Pass: Sanhok, PUBG Corp
  6. Clicker Heroes 2, Playsaurus
  7. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
  8. Jurassic World Evolution, Frontier Developments
  9. Enter the Gungeon, Devolver
  10. Raft, Axolot Games
