While Helldivers 2 continues to dominate the Steam charts, several new indie games managed to break into the top 15 last week. Not to mention the impressive jumps in sales of some already successful older titles.

Last Epoch debuts at #3 on Steam charts, with several other indie games landing in top 15

Helldivers 2 remains the highest-grossing game on Steam for a third consecutive week. This is another testament to the game’s success, as Arrowhead creative director Johan Pilestedt recently confirmed that the co-op shooter has already reached around 3 million copies sold.

Eleventh Hour Games’ action RPG Last Epoch, which peaked at nearly 265k concurrent players shortly after its 1.0 launch, debuted at #3 overall. It is followed by a bunch of other indie hits: Inflexion Games’ survival title Nightingale (#7), poker deck-building roguelike Balatro from solo dev LocalThunk (#12), and Ironwood Studios’ survival adventure game Pacific Drive (#13).

Myth of Empires, a multiplayer sandbox title and another Early Access graduate, ranked 26th in gross revenue last week.

Elden Ring experienced an impressive sales spike, with pre-orders for the upcoming Shadow of the Erdtree coming in at #9 (#5 when looking only at premium titles). As a result, the base game jumped 51 positions to 4th overall (3rd among premium titles only).

Interestingly, Batman: Arkham Knight returned to the top 100 highest-grossing games on Steam and landed at #33 overall. According to SteamDB, it also peaked at over 6,700 concurrent players last week. For comparison, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is now having under 1,000 CCU following its disappointing launch.

Speaking of other notable changes on the chart, Sons of the Forest landed at #27 overall. The survival game climbed 50 positions following its 1.0 launch on February 22.
