CHARTS: V Rising takes second No.1 on Steam

Vampire survival title V Rising was the best-selling title on Steam for the second week running.

The game launched into Early Access back on May 17th, taking the No.1 spot on Valve's platform in its first week on sale. Since then, V Rising has shifted over one million copies, according to developer Stunlock Studios. The Founder's Pack: Eldest Bloodline version of the game came in sixth, dropping one place week-on-week.

Second place once again goes to Valve's Steam Deck, continuing the hardware's so-far long run in the charts, while the company's Index VR Kit dropped one place to No.7 week-on-week.

Elden Ring rises one position to third, while last week's No.3 – Arma Reforger – has dropped out of the Top Ten altogether. FIFA 22 rose four places to No.4 week-on-week thanks to a huge price cut as part of EA's publisher sale on Steam, while Early Access RPG My Time at Sandrock from developer Pathea, makes its debut in fifth place.

The incredibly named Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix + VIP Edition from Sega makes its debut at No.8, ahead of No Man's Sky. That title is currently 50 per cent off on Steam, with new content coming out on a monthly basis for Hello Games' ambitious sci-fi romp.

Rounding off the Top Ten is the latest entry in Rebellion's Sniper Elite franchise, following its launch on May 26th.

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

1. V Rising, Stunlock
2. Steam Deck, Valve
3. Elden Ring, Bandai Namco
4. FIFA 22, EA
5. My Time at Sandrock, Pathea
