Valve on Thursday revealed the list of the top selling games on Steam â€œas measured by gross revenueâ€ in 2018. The developer breaks it down by â€œplatinum,â€ â€œgold,â€ â€œsilver,â€ and â€œbronze,â€ with platinum being the titles that sold the most throughout the year.
Among the platformâ€™s top sellers include Rocket League, Grand Theft Auto V, Far Cry 5, and PlayerUnknownâ€™s Battlegrounds. According to Valve, it measured game sales, in-game transactions, and DLC to determine total revenue. Thatâ€™s why the list features an eclectic mix of free-to-play and premium games.
Below are the top-selling games in 2018:
- PlayerUnknownâ€™s Battlegrounds
- Rocket League
- Dota 2
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Assassinâ€™s Creed Odyssey
- Far Cry 5
- Civilization VI
- Rainbow Six Siege
- Monster Hunter World
- The Elder Scrolls Online
- CS: GOâ€”Danger Zone
Itâ€™s no surprise that many of the top selling games were also Steamâ€™s most played, which Valve said is measured by the highest peak of simultaneous players. Out of the ten that were most played, seven were also among Steamâ€™s best sellers.
Valve also unveiled the platformâ€™s top selling VR titles, top early access grads, and top new releases, the latter of which includes Celeste, Dragonball Fighter Z, Into the Breach, and Hitman 2.
