EA's new Star Wars title, Jedi: Survivor, was the second biggest seller on Steam last week.
The game debuted on April 28th and came in at No.2 after pre-orders clocked in at fifth place the previous week. That's despite widespread reports of poor performance that publisher EA has addressed. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive once again was the biggest earner on Steam, while Valve's hardware dropped two places to No.4.
EA's battle royale Apex Legends rose six places week-on-week, likely off the back of hype surrounding the upcoming 17th season – Arsenal – which includes a wealth of updates and a brand new playable character.
The fifth highest selling game on Steam last week was Catfood Studio's 雀魂麻将(MahjongSoul), which is only available in China. PUBG: Battlegrounds drops two places to No.5, charting ahead of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which has dropped to seventh from third last week.
Free-to-play military title and colossal security risk War Thunder returns to the Steam Top Ten in eighth place, just ahead of fellow free-to-play title Warframe in the wake of the release of the new Duviri Paradox expansion.
Rounding off the Top Ten are pre-orders for Age of Wonders 4 from Paradox.

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
