CHARTS: Fall Guys has spent four weeks at the Steam No.1 spot

Fall Guys, the smash hit title from developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital, has claimed its fourth No.1 spot on Steam since its release.

The title launched on August 4th and has been the best-selling game on the platform ever since. To date it has sold more than seven million copies on Steam alone.

Second place goes to Control Ultimate Edition, which was released on August 27th. This comes a year after the title was originally released as an exclusive on the Epic Games Store. The parent company of Control's publisher 505 Games, Digital Bros, was paid $10.5m by the Fortnite firm for the exclusivity.

In third place is Microsoft Flight Simulator, which dropped one place week-on-week, while the No.4 spot goes to pre-orders for Amazon's upcoming MMO New World. That's not set to release until the spring of next year but already seems to have attracted a fair amount of attention.

Among Us from Innersloth falls from fourth place to fifth, while InXile's Wasteland 3 debuts at No.6 following its release on August 28th.

Both seventh and eighth places are missing from the Steam charts data this week, but pre-orders for Crusader Kings III from Paradox Interactive were the ninth most-purchased item on the platform last week.

The Game of the Year Edition of CD Projekt's wildly-popular The Witcher 3 took the No.10 spot due to a 70 per cent price cut.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending August 29th:

1. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, Devolver
2. Control Ultimate Edition, 505 Games
3. Microsoft Flight Simulator, Xbox Game Studios
4. New World, Amazon Games (P)
5. Among Us, Innersloth
6. Wasteland 3, InXile
7. MISSING
8. MISSING
9. Crusader Kings III, Paradox (P)
10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition, CD Projekt
