A bountiful harvest for Farming Simulator 19 takes it to the top of this week’s Steam Top Ten

A bountiful harvest for Farming Simulator 19 takes it to the top of this week’s Steam Top Ten

Farming Simulator 19’s agricultural working class has overthrown the Steam chart elite to take number one in this week’s Top Ten.

The latest entry in Giants’ wildly-popular crops-and-critters simulator reached No.5 through pre-orders last week. This year’s edition features a complete graphical overhaul and a franchise-first inclusion of John Deere tractors. Blimey.

Elsewhere, Steam’s Autumn Sale has brought bigger names back into the Steam Top Ten. The shorter sale ran through last week and ends tomorrow, featuring the usual heavy cuts to price tags.

Monster Hunter World is no stranger to the charts and returns at No.2 with a 34 per cent discount. Total War: Warhammer II follows in third with a half-price sale, while Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey climbs to No.4 at one-third off the RRP.

Those discounts were enough to knock the usual big-hitters down a good few spots, with Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and Grand Theft Auto V taking fifth and sixth respectively.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 takes No.8 this week at 35 per cent off in the Autumn sale. Another two regular features close out this week’s chart, as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive takes ninth. The Witcher 3 tends to make an appearance during sales, closing out at No.10 thanks to a half-price discount.
