Weekly PC download charts: ‘The Scroll of Taiwu’, ‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’, ‘Thronebreaker’
The next slice of action adventure from “The Witcher” franchise arrives in the form of a card game; historical epic “Assassin’s Creed” prepares to dive into Ancient Greece; and Chinese-language dynastic strategy game “The Scroll of Taiwu” rises to the top of the Steam charts.
“The Scroll of Taiwu” may only be available in Chinese, and available for a quarter of the price of a big publisher’s top-tier release, but that’s not prevented it from vaulting up the Steam charts from last week’s seventh place.
Speaking of big releases, “Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” can be found atop the Humble Store’s bestseller list and a similar trajectory could be expected on Steam, where it sits in eighth.
Western action-RPG “Pathfinder: Kingmaker”, like “The Scroll of Taiwu”, adopts some unexpected genre elements, blending traditional RPG questing with a slice of empire building.
It was last week’s second best seller on GOG and this week makes it to the number three spot on the larger Steam store.
Finally, GOG brings another potential breakout hit to the fore through its current number one, card game “Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales”.
The store is associated with CD Projekt, which develops “The Witcher” series of action adventures, and this new excursion into the same fiction started life as an expansion for digital card game as “Gwent” (itself a spin-off from “The Witcher 3”), and heading towards an Oct. 23 release, now combines “narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics.”
