Steam's Autumn sale shook things up on the best selling list and The Witcher 3's two versions are selling like hotcakes again. It is also the only game with no new content in 2019 to enter the top 10 list.
Steam's top-selling list keeps getting updated regularly and the last few spots in the top 10 are turbulent, to say the least. Total War: Warhammer II, The Witcher 3 base game, The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition and Transport Fever 2 have exchanged places on the ladder multiple times during 27 November 2019.
However, at the time of writing, it was The Witcher 3 Game of the Year that came in at #10, ahead of the base game and Transport Fever 2. Normally, this wouldn't be weird as CD Projekt Red's RPG is hailed as one of the best games ever made but it is literally the only game in the top 10 sellers with no new content released in 2019.
The full list, along with the 2019 content is as follows:
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection - technically didn't have any 2019 content yet but it will be released on 3 December 2019
- Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order - released on 15 November 2019
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - released on 22 March 2019
- Resident Evil 2 - released on 25 January 2019
- Disco Elysium - released on 15 October 2019
- Total War: Warhammer II - The Shadow & The Blade DLC - same situation as Halo: MCC, to be released on 12 December 2019
- Grand Theft Auto V - multiple and frequent content drops throughout 2019
- PUBG - multiple content drops throughout 2019
- Total War: Warhammer II - multiple content drops throughout 2019
- The Witcher 3 Game of the Year Edition - the last bit of content was released four years ago, in 2015 although the collection came in 2016
The Witcher 3 is on a hefty 70 per cent discount but then again, so most of the games on the list have discounts of their own. It's not hard to imagine the game placing even higher, had it not been for 2019's cream of the crop that populates the top five. With the exception of Resident Evil 2, neither The Witcher 3 nor the top five incorporate microtransactions.
Ironically enough, the microtransactionless #2 and #3 on the ladder are published by EA and Activision.
