CHARTS: Phasmophobia claims Halloween No.1 spot on Steam

CHARTS: Phasmophobia claims Halloween No.1 spot on Steam

Co-op horror VR title Phasmophobia was the best-selling game on Steam last week thanks to a 10 per cent discount.

The game has been a top seller on the platform now for a month.

Second place went to the multiplayer smash hit Among Us, which came in ahead of pre-orders for the eagerly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. That game is now set for a release in December, though studio behind it – CD Projekt – has come under fire for the long hours developers have had to put to complete the title.

In the No.5 spot was Valve's own Index VR headset, which is contributing to a 119 per cent increase in PC virtual reality game revenue this year according to SuperData, while Hades from Supergiant charted in sixth place thanks to a 20 per cent discount. Early Access title Baldur's Gate 3 was the seventh best-selling game of the week, despite it having no discount in the Steam sale, coming in ahead of cyberpunk platformer Ghostrunner, which debuted in the No.8 spot.

The upcoming Beyond Light DLC for Destiny 2came in ninth place this week, while Tuxedo Labs' Teardown finished up the charts at No.10.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending October 31st:

1. Phasmophobia, Kinetic Games
2. Among Us, Innersloth
3. Cyberpunk 2077 (P), CD Projekt
4. MISSING
5. Valve Index VR Kit, Valve
