CHARTS: Amazon's New World shoots straight to Steam No.1 spot

Amazon's recently-launched New World was the best-selling item on Steam last week.

The MMO scored the top spot on the platform following its September 28th release. This isn't the first time that New World has been the highest seller on Steam however; pre-orders for the title managed to be No.1 several times in the summer due to a closed beta for the upcoming game. The Deluxe Edition of New World took fifth this week.

According to SteamDB, the title has managed to hit a peak concurrent user figure of 913,634 players since launch; more than the 734,000 we reported last week.

Last week's best-seller, the Operation Riptide DLC for Valve's online shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, dropped to fourth place, ahead of Delightwork's fighting game Melty Blood: Type Lumina, which made its debut at No.6.

Seventh and eighth places went to the regular edition of FIFA 22 and its Ultimate Edition respectively following the football blockbuster's launch on September 30th, while Valve's Index VR headset drops one position to No.9. Rounding out the Top Ten are pre-orders for the upcoming Battlefield 2042.

1. New World, Amazson
