CHARTS: Police shooter Ready or Not is Steam's first No.1 of 2022

The first No.1 of 2022 on Steam is SWAT first-person shooter Ready or Not.

Void Interactive's title launched into Early Access on December 17th and has been the best-selling game on Steam for two weeks now, having dethroned Halo Infinite's campaign. Second place goes to co-op romp It Takes Two took second place last week in large part due to a 50 per cent price cut on the platform.

In third place is the latest entry in the Five Nights at Freddy's horror franchise – Security Breach – which also launched on December 17th. The title debuted at second place last week.

Valve's Index VR headset was fourth last week, ahead of long-time and wildly ambitious Steam Early Access title Project Zomboid which made its debut on the service back in October 2013. The game is currently 33 per cent off on Steam.

Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 5 from Xbox Game Studios took sixth and eighth places respectively, while Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 came in at No.7 last week with a 50 per cent price cut.

Cyberpunk 2077 charted in ninth place – also with a 50 per cent reduction in price – while Facepunch's Rust rounds off the Top Ten.

1. Ready or Not, Void Interactive
