CHARTS: Dota 2 meta change helps game shoot up to Steam No.2

Valve's Dota 2 rose up three places to No.2 in the Steam Top Ten last week. 

This follows the latest big update to the MOBA smash hit, which has made major changes to the game's meta-game. This comes alongside the new fishing game that comes via the new Crownfall Act 2 update. 

Valve has the Top Three games locked up – Counter-Strike 2 once more takes the No.1 spot, while the Steam Deck hardware holds onto third place. Last week's No.2, Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut drops two positions to fourth, while Elden Ring returns to the Top Ten in fifth in the wake of a new trailer for the new Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. That is set to launch on June 21. 

Destiny 2 returns to the Top Ten in sixth, up from last week's No.13, thanks to the newly-released Season of the Wish content. Battle royale giant PUBG: Battlegrounds drops three places to No.7 while Cyberpunk 2077 fell one place to eighth. A 50 per cent price cut helps Total War: Warhammer 3 return to the charts in No.9 – up from 55th place last week – while Baldur's Gate 3 rounds off the Top Ten, having dropped four places week-on-week. 

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

1. Counter-Strike 2, Valve

3. Steam Deck, Valve
4. Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut, PlayStation
