Gamepire’s supermax survival SCUM has been set loose to take No.1 in this week’s Steam Top Ten.
The DayZ model of kill-or-be-killed survival titles may have faded in popularity thanks to battle royale. But Gamepire, in association with Croteam, has managed to carve a successful niche with the obsessive stat-tracking of SCUM, which takes No.1 this week.
Since launching on Early Access last week, the game has quickly become publisher Devolver Digital’s biggest launch yet, selling over 250k copies. A supporter’s pack for the title takes No.7 in the Steam Top Ten.
Next in line, Two Point Hospital takes - fittingly - the No.2 spot in this week’s chart. The spiritual successor to Theme Hospital launched on Steam last Friday, with a 10 per cent discount lasting until September 5th.
A 50 per cent price cut brings Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition back to the Steam Top Ten, parking at No.6. The discount follows an August update that brought a host of new online features to the JRPG.
Joining Two Point in reviving old PC classics, The Universim entered Early Access last week to place No. 8 in this week’s Top Ten. Indie studio Crytivo is hoping to fill a long-neglected space in the god-game genre.
Closing out the list in Insurgency: Sandstorm. Due for release on September 18th, Sandstorm is at a 10 per cent discount while in its pre-order period.
