Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
We’re counting down the minutes until the launch of The Division – it’s set to unlock in around 32 hours from now. At that point, a horrific pandemic will be unleashed on (virtual) New York City, and society will quickly collapse. If you played the recent beta, you’ll know (some of) what to expect – otherwise, take a look at Mythor’s recent preview to bring yourself up to speed.
The rest of the charts this week are pretty interesting, too – it’s an impressive mix of tiny indies (Stardew Valley) and the biggest of the big (Far Cry Primal), with some creative takes (Superhot) on classic genres (CS:GO). And then there’s Master of Orion, which features heavily in this week’s episode of Player Attack!
