PUBG Returns to The Top of PC Game Download Charts on Steam

In the absence of any enormous PC game releases, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" reclaimed Steam's peak while a sale-price "No Man's Sky" soared to first on Humble and "Monster Hunter: World" re-takes GamersGate.

Battle royale icon "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" rolled out a seasonal Korean festival event, implemented a ranking system, and introduced the flare gun as a standard piece of equipment in a week that saw it become Steam's best selling title, by revenue.

It was a relatively minor week in terms of new PC game releases, with "The Bard's Tale IV" failing to make a dent on the Steam top ten.

Instead, a short-term sale on "NieR:Automata" saw the 2017 favorite rise back up the charts for a place in among recent hits "Shadow of the Tomb Raider," "Monster Hunter: World," and Battle Royale iteration "SCUM."

While "Monster Hunter: World" climbs back to first on GamersGate and the space exploration of "No Man's Sky" overtakes sci-fi shooter "Destiny 2" on Humble, the Fanatical store brings a weeklong bundle event to a close with its Slayer Bundle, whose full contents include the highly-rated "Styx: Master of Shadows," "The Sexy Brutale," "The Lion's Song" and 14 more.

On the subject of big PC releases (and Fanatical's chart,) the ahistorical anime-style strategy "Valkyria Chronicles 4" arrives on September 25 after extending the former PlayStation-exclusive franchise's fanbase through a 2016 re-release of 2008's original "Valkyria Chronicles."

It's also being released on PlayStation 4 worldwide after a favorable Japanese reception earlier in the year, with Xbox One and Nintendo Switch editions as well.
