- Excellent debut of Going Medieval;
- Successful release of Necromunda: Hired Gun, the reception is improving;
- Discounts and launch of DLC have strongly contributed to sales of ARK: Survival Evolved.
As every Monday, Valve released the list of the biggest (by revenue) Steam bestsellers of the previous week. Compared to the last week's edition, there were some big changes in the top ten. The leader of sales turned out to be a newcomer in the form of strategy game Going Medieval. This success is all the more impressive that it is a relatively cheap title (its price is also reduced by 10% as part of launch deal).
The game not only sells superbly, but has also met with a very warm reception. On Steam, out of 1714 user reviews (at the time of writing this message) as many as 91% praise Going Medieval, which is classified as a "very positive" reception of the project. The game also achieves good activity results. At the hottest moment of last Sunday, 14 675 people played the game on Steam. What is important, this is the current record for this title, which means that it attracted more people in front of monitor screens during the first weekend than on launch day, and this usually bodes well for the future.
In second place we have Genesis Season Pass for ARK: Survival Evolved, which took the number five position. Both these successes are the result of a large discount on the base game, as well as the release of the Genesis Part 2 expansion.
A very good debut was also recorded by the shooter Necromunda: Hired Gun, which took fourth place. The game has received fairly average reviews, mainly due to technical condition. However, the project has already received its first major update and its reception among players is clearly improving. A day after the release on Steam, 68% of user reviews were positive, and now it is already 73%.
