CHARTS: V Rising drops to No.2 on Steam

Vampire survival title V Rising dropped to second on Steam place week-on-week.

The game made its debut into Early Access back on May 17th and was the highest-selling release on Steam for its first two weeks on the trot. This is the first time that V Rising has dropped to No.2, though that's not to say that the game isn't still popular. The title has shifted over one million copies to date.

Valve's Steam Deck returns to the top spot in the charts, while the company's Index VR headset rose three places to No.4 week-on-week.

Elden Ring holds steady in third place, ahead of Sea of Thieves, which returns to the charts in No.5. No Man's Sky jumps from last week's ninth to sixth place off the back of the newly-released content for the title.

It Takes Two from EA returns to the Top Ten thanks to a 50 per cent price cut, as does FIFA 22, which drops four places to No.8.

Rebellion's Sniper Elite 5 rises one place to ninth, while pre-orders for upcoming cyberpunk cat game Stray round off the charts at No.10.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending June 4th:

1. Steam Deck, Valve
2. V Rising, Stunlock
3. Elden Ring, Bandai Namco
4. Valve Index VR Kit, Valve
5. Sea of Thieves, Xbox Games Studios
6. No Man's Sky, Hello Games
7. It Takes Two, EA
8. FIFA 22, EA
9. Sniper Elite 5, Rebellion
10. Stray, Annapurna (P)
