Monster Hunter: World continues to prove an unstoppable force in this week’s Steam Top Ten

There’s no endgame in sight for Capcom as Monster Hunter: World hits the top of the charts once again.

Capcom’s PC port of Monster Hunter: World has become a regular fixture in the Steam top ten. Despite launching eight months after its console debut, the big-hitter has shot past 10 million sales worldwide and takes the No.1 spot yet again.

Pitched as a darker take on Stardew Valley, Graveyard Keeper digs up a spot at No.3 in this week’s top ten. The Tinybuild-published management and life sim launched last Wednesday and swaps out cabbages for corpses.

In the run-up to the release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, predecessor Rise of the Tomb Raider steals a place at No.4 on the Steam top ten. All of Lara Croft’s adventures are currently on sale for a substantial discount to celebrate her 20th anniversary.

Cold War-era tactics thriller Phantom Doctrine infiltrates the charts at No.7, currently 10 per cent off on launch sale. Crytek’s Hunt: Showdown, meanwhile, follows up at No.8 following a free weekend over the 9th to 13th.
