CHARTS: Star Wars Jedi Survivor pre-orders were fifth biggest seller last week

Pre-orders for the upcoming Star Wars Jedi Survivor took the No.5 spot on Steam last week.

The title saw a massive 18-place leap up from 23rd place to fifth ahead of its release on April 27th, likely due to positive previews for the title. Its predecessor – 2019's Jedi Fallen Order – was the best Star Wars launch for PC, according to publisher EA.

First place in the Steam Top Ten once again goes to CS:GO, while second place goes to Valve's Stem Deck hardware. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 drops one position down to No.3, charting ahead of PUBG: Battlegrounds, which also falls one place to fourth. Fellow free-to-play battle royale title Apex Legends hangs steady in sixth place, while Destiny 2 rose three places to No.7.

A 67 per cent price cut sees Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 return to the Top Ten in eighth – an 11-place rise from last week's 19th. MMO Lost Ark hangs in ninth place, while the newly-released Wartales from Shiro Games makes its debut in the Steam Top Ten at No.10 one week after its April 12th release.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending April 25th:

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
2. Steam Deck, Valve
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Activision
4. PUBG: Battlegrounds, Krafton
5. Star Wars Jedi Survivor, EA (P)
6. Apex Legends, EA
7. Destiny 2, Bungie
8. Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar
9. Lost Ark, Amazon
10. Wartales, Shiro Games
