With many end-of-year sales already in full swing, PC download charts on Dec. 25, 2017 read like a most-wanted for the year’s new releases and old favorites.

Top of the Steam charts since its March 2017 release, intense battle royale multiplayer experience “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” spent Christmas Day top of the tree.

First launched on Windows PC as an in-development title, it became available on Xbox One partway through December, where it is expected to undergo significant changes as it becomes more stable and better attuned to console players’ needs.

Vintage cartoon style action game “Cuphead”, fantasy adventure “Divinity: Original Sin 2”, and the aurally and psychologically immersive combat quest “Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice” were all critically-acclaimed upon their 2017 releases and featured across multiple bestseller charts.
