Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has been the town’s gossip all week, and now it’s gone and topping the Steam charts.
Steam publishes its weekly Top Sellers list every Sunday, and this particular Sunday is clearly no different. Well, it’s a little bit different, since this week’s top-rated game is the one where you play a thriving klutzy pea pushing other klutzy peas off premium platforms – Fall Guys are officially number one.
This means it knocked out last week’s best-selling book Grounded from the top spot. Grounded is currently in third place, right behind the recently released Horizon Zero Dawn PC port.
It’s important to note that this listing is consistent with gross sales rather than units sold – which makes Fall Guys’ ascent even more impressive thanks to its significantly lower price tag than other Bigger game. Additionally, Collector’s Edition of Fall Guys came in 4th, meaning it was in the top 5 twice. People really like to shove others in video games.
It’s worth mentioning that the Horizon Zero Dawn only launches on Friday, meaning it has only had a few sales days after its launch so far. There is a very real possibility that with a week before it, it could overtake the Fall Guys by the time next week’s rankings spin. Or maybe Fall Guys will continue its dominance as the most popular bean game of all time.
Did you know that a few former Ubisoft developers recently started a studio called Beans? Or is that some crazy guy filling up his computer and calling a repairman over?
Aside from Steam, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is currently free on PS4 for PS Plus subscribers as part of this month’s giveaway. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is also free, but it’s just campaign.
