CHARTS: Final Shape hype helps Destiny 2 take No.2 on Steam

CHARTS: Final Shape hype helps Destiny 2 take No.2 on Steam

Bungie's Destiny 2 was the second biggest-selling title on Steam last week. 

The game shot up four places largely thanks to excitement surrounding the upcoming and eagerly awaited The Final Shape expansion. The top spot once again goes to Counter-Strike 2, while Valve's Steam Deck hardware was the third-biggest-seller of the week. The company's hit MOBA Dota 2 dropped two places to fourth. 

Call of Duty has made a return to the Top Ten; last week the blockbuster shooter sat in 35th place, but it has risen up to No.5 on the back of a 35 per cent discount on Modern Warfare 3 and the newly-released Season Four of content for that title. That's on top of hype for the upcoming Black Ops 6, the latest entry in the franchise, which is set to launch at the end of this year. 

Elden Ring hangs steady in the Top Ten in sixth place thanks to the upcoming Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, while newly-released Early Access survival title Soulmask makes its debut in seventh. 

Battle royale giant PUBG: Battlegrounds dropped one place to eighth while Rust returns to the charts at No.10 thanks to a 50 per cent discount. 

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

1. Counter-Strike 2, Valve
2. Destiny 2, Bungie
3. Steam Deck, Valve
4. Dota 2, Valve
5. Call of Duty, Activision 
6. Elden Ring, Bandai Namco
7. Soulmask, Qooland Games
8. PUBG: Battlegrounds, Krafton 
9. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Blackcell Season Four, Activision 
10. Rust, Facepunch
