These are the video games that made probably the most cash on Steam in 2016.
Steam has revealed an inventory of the highest 100 grossing video games on the platform – that’s, the video games that generated probably the most uncooked income from gross sales, DLC, subscription and microtransactions – and it’s fairly attention-grabbing for a few causes.
Several 2016 new releases made the “platinum” record: Civilization 6, Dark Souls 3, The Division, No Man’s Sky, Total War: Warhammer and XCOM 2. Notice there are three turn-based technique video games on there, together with a From Software RPG – all video games which might be thought of extra hardcore area of interest than mainstream, and none of which have microtransactions.
2015 releases Fallout 4, GTA 5, Rocket League and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt additionally reached Platinum standing, even if they should have bought boatloads of copies earlier than 2016 kicked off, and would have been discounted a number of instances in 2016. All of them have DLC or add-ons, although.
The remaining platinum degree earners are perennials Counter-strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2. Dota 2 is the one free-to-play title within the platinum class, however you’ll see hundreds extra within the following tiers.
We gained’t record the complete prime 100 right here, since you’ll be able to simply test ’em out on Steam, however listed here are the Silver and Bronze tiers:
- Ark: Survival Evolved
- Arma three
- Call of Duty: Black Ops three
- Dead by Daylight
- H1Z1 King of the Hill
- Rainbow Six: Siege
- Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration
- Stardew Valley
- Team Fortress 2
- Cities Skyline
- Civilization 5
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition
- The Elder Scrolls Online
- Europa Universalis four
- Far Cry Primal
- Hearts of Iron four
- Payday 2
- Planet Coaster
- War Thunder
- Watch Dogs 2
Some factors I discovered attention-grabbing: Watch Dogs 2 and Far Cry Primal are up there regardless of narratives of them flopping. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare didn’t chart – however 2015 launch Black Ops three did. Payday 2 did rather well regardless of the large backlash to its microtransactions, which Overkill backed away from.
