Subverse Took Steam by (Erotic) Storm

Last week, Valheim defended its position as the leader of Steam's biggest bestseller ranking. The release of the erotic game Subverse was also a big success, debuting at number two on the chart.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Valheim topped the Steam bestseller list for the eighth week in a row;
  2. The erotic game Subverse scored (sic!) a fantastic debut in Early Access;
  3. Half-Life: Alyx, The Witcher 3 , and Cyberpunk 2077 returned to the top 10 thanks to special offers.

Valve released its weekly list of the biggest (by revenue) bestsellers on Steam. Valheim defended its leading position. On the other hand, there were significant changes in the remaining spots.

Subverse, a game with strong erotic elements, recorded an excellent debut in early access. The production took second place on the list, which is all the more impressive as it was released only last Friday.

The second best debut of last week turned out to be the co-op game It Takes Two, which took the seventh place. In addition, the top ten bestsellers included Half-Life: Alyx, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and once again Cyberpunk 2077, thanks to attractive deals available for all three titles.

It is also worth noting the impressive spot of Outriders pre-orders. For several weeks, the Polish game has almost always been present in Steam's top ten bestsellers, which bodes very well. The increased interest in the project is the effect of the recently released demo, so in this case the players are not buying a cat in a bag.

Instead, Loop Hero, Forza Horizon 4 and Tale of Immortal dropped out of the top 10. This is especially noteworthy in the case of the latter title, as it's the first time since its January release that the Chinese RPG didn't make the list.
