Valve on Thursday revealed the list of the top selling games on Steam “as measured by gross revenue” in 2018. The developer breaks it down by “platinum,” “gold,” “silver,” and “bronze,” with platinum being the titles that sold the most throughout the year.
Among the platform’s top sellers include Rocket League, Grand Theft Auto V, Far Cry 5, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. According to Valve, it measured game sales, in-game transactions, and DLC to determine total revenue. That’s why the list features an eclectic mix of free-to-play and premium games.
Below are the top-selling games in 2018:
- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
- Rocket League
- Dota 2
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- Far Cry 5
- Civilization VI
- Rainbow Six Siege
- Monster Hunter World
- The Elder Scrolls Online
- CS: GO—Danger Zone
It’s no surprise that many of the top selling games were also Steam’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 Steam’s best sellers.
Valve also unveiled the platform’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.
