CHARTS: Cyberpunk 2077 pre-orders once again were Steam No.1

CHARTS: Cyberpunk 2077 pre-orders once again were Steam No.1

For the second week in a row, CD Projekt's eagerly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 was the best-selling game on Steam.

The dark sci-fi RPG debuts on December 10th following a delay from its previous November release date. Second place once again goes to Valve's Index VR headset, which comes in ahead of Sega and Sports Interactive's Football Manager 2021. That title was released on November 23rd and was highly pre-ordered ahead of its release.

Kinetic's Phasmophobia drops one place to No.4, while popular roguelike Hades from Supergiant rises three places to fifth. The game is currently discounted and won a load of awards recently, which has likely inspired a wave of popularity.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has reentered the Top Ten at No.6 thanks to a 33 per cent discount, while Halo: The Master Chief Collection takes seventh place. This is in part thanks to the 35 per cent discount, but also comes off the back of Halo 4 making its PC debut last week.

Battle royale progenitor Playerunknown's Battlegrounds comes in at No.8 with a 50 per cent price cut following a patch that introduces a wealth of new content. Kojima Productions' Death Stranding walks into ninth place thanks to being half price right now, while Bethesda's Doom Eternal rounds up the Top Ten with a 67 per cent discount.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending November 28th:

1. Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt (P)
2. Valve Index VR Kit, Valve
3. Football Manager 2021, Sega
4. Phasmophobia, Kinetic
5. Hades, Supergiant
6. Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar
7. Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Xbox Game Studios
8. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp
9. Death Stranding, 505 Games
10. Doom Eternal, Bethesda
