CHARTS: Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 Pass shoots its way to second place this week

The season pass for the fifth year of Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege took second place in the Steam charts last week.

Last week, the French publisher announced changes to the games' esports format. In 2019, Rainbow Six Siege hit 55 million players, and the title has brought in 20 million new players since June 2018.

Capcom has two entries in the Steam chart. The first, at No.3 is Monster Hunter World: Icebore. The DLC came to PC in January 2020; however, it was released on consoles in September 2019.

The Japanese firm also took the No.9 spot with Monster Hunter: World. PC is the second-largest platform for the title. By March 2019, 4.5 million copies had been sold for PC. On top of that, as of July 2019, over 13 million copies of the fantasy RPG have been shipped globally.

Deep Silver has also claimed two spots this week, Metro Exodus and Metro Exodus - Gold Edition sit at No.4 and No.5 respectively. The apocalyptic shooter shifted around 200,000 copies within its first day on Steam. Before release, the game was available for pre-order on Steam. However, it went on to become an Epic Games Store exclusive. Many fans expressed their disdain over this decision, particularly as some of them had already purchased the game on Valve's storefront.

Grand Theft Auto V takes seventh place in this week's chart. Rockstar's criminally-charged title was the best-selling game of the last decade in both the UK and US. At No.8 is No Man's Sky, Hello Games' exploration title can be purchased for 50 per cent off.

Closing the chart is the recently released Besiege. Spiderling Studios building game is on offer with 50 per cent off.

  1. N/A
  2. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege - Year 5 Pass, Ubisoft
