CHARTS: Valheim has spent a month at Steam No.1 spot

Early Access survival title Valheim has now taken the No.1 spot on Steam for the fourth week in a row.

The news comes following news that the game had shifted four million units in its first three weeks on the market. The Viking Early Access title charted ahead of Valve's own Index VR headset, which was the second highest-selling item of the week, while Lightning Games' Tale of Immortal drops from No.2 to third place week-on-week.

Persona 5 Strikers takes both fourth and fifth place. No.4 goes to the regular edition, ahead of the digital deluxe version. This is a spin-off title made by franchise developer P-Studio along with Dynasty Warriors maker Omega Force that sees the Persona 5 characters battling in the chaotic hack-and-slash style of the Dynasty Warriors IP.

Stardew Valley returns to the Steam Top Ten in sixth place five years after it was released, while pre-orders for Square Enix's upcoming Outriders were the seventh highest-selling item of the week. This follows a demo for the shooter going live on February 25th.

Nioh 2 Complete Edition drops two places to No.8 ahead of Baldur's Gate 3, which returns to the Top Ten with the launch of the Druid class and a pretty sizeable patch. Rounding up the bottom of the charts this week is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive DLC, Operation Broken Fang.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending February 27th:

1. Valheim, Coffee Stain Publishing
2. Valve Index VR, Valve
3. Tale of Immortal, Lightning Games
4. Persona 5: Strikers, Sega
