Starfield has dropped down, and CS:GO is still the best among free games.

For two weeks at the beginning of September Starfield crowned Steam's best-seller chart – no wonder, it was released on September 1 in early access and September 6 for everyone. Players' anticipation easily elevated it, but the game couldn't stay on top for long: last week, Starfield dropped to number four, just behind Baldur's Gate 3, which is now the most-sold game by revenue. Again.
According to SteamDB, Baldur's Gate 3 led the chart for three weeks after its launch, but then Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon took its place briefly before Starfield came out.
Now, Baldur's Gate 3 might be in third place only among all the games and devices Steam has to offer, but above it are Steam Deck and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – the most popular free title – so it makes Larian's RPG the best-selling paid game.
Here is a list of last week's top sellers:
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
- Steam Deck
- Baldur's Gate 3
- Mortal Kombat 1
- PAYDAY 3
- Apex Legends
- PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS
- Lost Ark
- Lies of P

This boost in sales might be connected to the PlayStation 5 release of Baldur's Gate 3 on September 6 and its further spread through YouTube and Twitch. We might see it happen again in a couple of months when the game is launched on Xbox.
At the same time, Starfield has a large number of players on Xbox, so this drop might not mean much for it.
