Imminent April 24 releases “Frostpunk” and “BattleTech” can be found in top five positions on the Humble Store and GOG charts, while 2016 hits “No Man’s Sky”, “Dying Light” and “Dark Souls III” benefit from sale discounts.

Steampunk city leadership challenge “Frostpunk” and sci-fi armored warfare prospect “BattleTech” haven’t yet moved into Steam’s top ten, but can both be found on official Steam key seller Humble as well as DRM-free storefront GOG a day before their release.

In addition, “BattleTech” is in first place on the Fanatical store, though “Frostpunk” is not available through that service at this time, preventing direct comparison.

Steam’s revenue-based ranking is crowned, for the 13th month running, by last-person-standing title “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds”, which ran a special event over the weekend, expanding teams from four to eight players.

Late March action game “Far Cry 5” is sandwiched between 2016’s “Dying Light” and 2011’s apparently perennial “Skyrim”, both of which were on sale over the past week, as with fifth-placed “Ghost Recon Wildlands.”

And it’s the big 2016 release “No Man’s Sky” that sits atop the Humble Store chart after a weeklong 60 percent discount, with a major update promised mid-year.
