CHARTS: Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord fights to keep the top spot

Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord has once again held off the competition and held its place at the top of the Steam charts for the third week in a row. 

TaleWorlds Entertainment's recently-released RPG debuted at No.1 in the Top Ten after launching into Early Access last month. The title kept the top spot in its second week, too. 

Valve has also kept its place this week with the Index VR kit at No.2. Production of the hardware has been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. On March 9th, more stock became available. However, it sold out that same day.

In third place is shinobi-souls hybrid Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Activision's game has moved up three spots from last week. Last year, the unforgiving title took home the Game of the Year accolade at both The Game Awards and The Steam Awards.

At No.4 is a second game developed by From Software, Dark Souls III Deluxe Edition. However, unlike Sekiro, the RPG was published by Bandai Namco. Currently, the game is on offer with 83 per cent off. In 2018, Dark Souls Remastered debuted at the top of the chart.

In fifth place is Bethesda's online multiplayer title Fallout 76. The game – alongside the Wastelanders update – came to Valve's storefront on April 7th. Initially, the publisher released the game on its own PC games launcher for a closer relationship with consumers.

Multiplayer shooter Deadside sits at No.6. Bad Pixel's title entered Early Access on April 14th. Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V took seventh place. The criminally-charged title was the best-selling game of the last decade in both the UK and the US. Reportedly, a new Grand Theft Auto game is in the works.

Doom Eternal took eighth place. Bethesda's game experienced the best opening weekend for the entire franchise. Furthermore, it had 104.9k concurrent users on Steam. At No.9 is 2K's upcoming title Xcom: Chimera Squad. The game is released on April 24th. Currently, the game is on offer with 50 per cent off.

Closing the chart this week is Green Hell by Creepy Jar. On April 7th, a new cooperative mode was added to the survival title.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending April 18th:

  1. Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord, TaleWorlds Entertainment (EA)
  2. Valve Index VR Kit, Valve
  3. Sekiro: Shadows Dire Twice, Activision
  4. Dark Souls III Deluxe Edition, Bandai Namco
  5. Fallout 76, Bethesda
  6. Deadside, Bad Pixel
  7. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
