The remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy has become the best-selling game on Steam, displacing Resident Evil: Village from the top. Other new entries include Subnautica: Below Zero and the upcoming ARPG Biomutant.
According to SteamDB, Mass Effect Legendary Edition peaked at 59,817 concurrent players, which is the highest for any BioWare title on Steam. It was enough for the original trilogy’s remaster to take 1st place on Steam’s weekly chart.
The game was followed by both Resident Evil: Village and its special bundle with Resident Evil 7. Subnautica: Below Zero, released on May 14, debuted in 5th place, while DOOM Eternal returned in the top 10 — thanks to a 67-percent discount.
