SCUM lasts another week on the run as it steals No.1 in the Steam Top Ten

Gamepires’ SCUM manages to survive long enough to top the Steam Top Ten for the second week running.

Devolver Digital’s biggest launch to date has continued to climb since launching on Steam Early Access.

At last count, the game had topped 700,000 active users - although many will be starting fresh after the survival title's first server wipe.

Theme Hospital successor Two Point Hospital slides down a spot to take No.3 this week, proving that demand is still high for hospital-management hijinks.

Square Enix swaps out one JRPG entry for another, as new release Dragon Quest XI takes No.7 in this week’s chart. The latest in the venerable RPG franchise hit Steam last week, a couple of months after its console launch in July.

NBA 2K19 hits the court at No.8, as this year’s iteration of the annual basketball franchise. That’s in spite of publisher 2K’s somewhat-questionable decision to ask Belgian gamers to lobby for loot boxes.

Pre-orders for Shadow of the Tomb Raider bring Lara Croft to No.9. The apocalyptic third title in the Tomb Raider reboot series is set to be unearthed this Friday.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 closes out the list at No.10, following the release of a Definitive Edition at the end of August.
