CHARTS: Survival game Valheim digs in at Steam No.1 spot

Early Access success Valheim has held onto the top spot on Steam for the second week since its launch.

Iron Gate's survival game debuted at No.1, selling over one million copies in its first week on sale. The title has certainly attracted a lot of attention from press and players. 

Second place goes to Lightning Games' Tale of Immortal once again, which the recently-released Complete Edition of Koei Tecmo's samurai souls-like Nioh 2 holds onto the No.3 spot. Battle royale progenitor Playerunknown's Battlegrounds returns to the Top Ten at No.4, likely due to a 50 per cent price cut that's live at the moment.

Facepunch's Rust rose two places this week following its wild success at the start of 2021, with the survival game coming in ahead of Valve's Index VR headset, which tell one place to No.6 this week. The hardware charted ahead of the recently-released dating sim-slash-puzzle game HuniePop 2: Double Date, which launched on February 8th. That title has a 10 per cent launch discount, which no doubt has helped sales.

Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt holds steady in eighth place, coming in ahead of Microsoft's pirate romp Sea of Thieves. Rounding up the Top Ten is Gamera Game's Dyson Sphere Program, which was the best-selling title on Steam just two weeks ago.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending February 13th:

1. Valheim, Coffee Stain
2. Tale of Immortal, Lightning Games
3. Nioh 2 Complete Edition, Koei Tecmo
4. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp
5. Rust, Facepunch
6. Valve Index VR Kit, Valve
7. HuniePop 2: Double Date, HuniePot
8. Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt
9. Sea of Thieves, Xbox Game Studios
10. Dyson Sphere Program, Gamera Game
