CHARTS: Fall Guys fights off Crusader Kings and Avengers to hold Steam No.1 spot

Devolver Digital and Mediatonic's Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is once again the best-selling title on Steam. This is the fifth consecutive week since its launch that the game has taken the No.1 spot.

Fall Guys has been downloaded over seven million times on Steam since its release at the start of August. Developer Mediatonic managed to raise $1m with the game for industry charity Special Effect.

In second, third, seventh and tenth places is Paradox's newly-released Crusader Kings III. The No.2 spot goes to the regular version of the strategy game, coming in just ahead of its special Royal Edition. No.7 goes to pre-ordered editions of Royal Edition, while tenth place goes to pre-orders for the regular version of the game. The title launched last week to critical acclaim.

Fourth place goes to Among Us from Innersloth, an increase of one position week-on-week, while both fifth and sixth places were won by Square Enix's Avengers game. No.5 was taken by the deluxe edition of the action title, while sixth was handed to the regular version. That followed the game's beta being played by over six million people at the end of August.

Multiplayer survival title Craftopia debuts in the No.8 spot, while the Ultimate Edition of 505 Games' Control reached ninth place, a fair drop from last week's second place.
