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.
Sure, we’ve been away for a while, but Player Attack is back for 2018 and, while plenty of things have changed, lots are still exactly the same. Case in point: PUBG is still ridiculously popular, as illustrated by the fact that it is still sitting atop the Steam charts this week.
The last-man-standing shooter finally emerged from early-access in late December 2017, and even though it’s been copping a little flak (reviews are now sitting at “Mixed” rather than the uproariously positive we saw in the early days), that isn’t stopping millions of people from playing. Literally. Microsoft confirmed that more than 4 million people are playing the Xbox One version of the game (barely a month after launch), and that’s on top of the countless PC gamers who’ve logged in every day for months. The team at Bluehole are keeping an eye on what’s working (and what’s not), and have just released the third update to the game since its official launch – while we’re hoping that settles down a bit over time, it’s great to see so much attention to detail.
…as for the rest of the charts, well… we’re hearing good things about They Are Billions – this might be one to keep an eye on, as well.
|#1 PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback. Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor. This realistic, high tension game is set on a massive 8×8 km island with a level of detail that showcases Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities.
