The best-selling Steam games of March 2024 are listed here.

Valve has released their annual list of Steam’s best games as the year draws to a close, featuring top selling titles, new releases, most played titles and more. According to Valve’s statistics, many of Steam’s most popular titles – such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Grand Theft Auto 5 – continue to outsell and be played more than their PC platform counterparts.

Each of Valve’s end-of-year wrap-ups lists several games with their orders arbitrarily, making it difficult to tell which title was the top seller or most played in each category. Games in the Platinum tier rank 1-12th while gold-tier titles rank 13-24th; silver tier games rank 25-40 while bronze tier titles are ranked 41-100. These lists are based on internal Valve data from May 1, 2024 through May 29, 2024.

The best-selling Steam games of 2024 are listed here.

The top-selling section of Steam’s Best of 2024 list is essential, providing gamers with a comprehensive overview of the year’s most popular titles. According to Valve’s random order selection, these Platinum-tier 2024 Best Selling Games were:

  • Apex Legends is a video game developed by Respawn Entertainment.
  • PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds)
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a video game developed by Valve Corporation.
  • Battlefield 2042 is a game set in the year 2042.
  • Bladepoint: Naraka
  • By Daylight, I’m Dead.
  • A New World in Destiny 2
  • Rainbow Six Siege is a game by Tom Clancy.
  • Valheim
  • Dota 2: Grand Theft Auto 5

In a blog post, Valve pointed out several notable repeat offenders. For the sixth year in a row, Dota 2, CS:GO, and GTA5 have all reached the top selling list, with PUBG: Battlegrounds and Rainbow Six Siege both making the list for the fifth time. Destiny 2 has topped the list for three years in a row, with 2019 being its first year on Steam after its departure from Blizzard’s Battle.net platform.

On the list, there are a few first-time winners as well. Battlefield 2042, New World, and Valheim are among the new games on the list. Apex Legends is particularly noteworthy since it is a non-2020 game that debuted on Steam late last year.

Another intriguing category is new releases, which highlights the year’s best 25 new games. The Platinum-tier Top New Releases for 2024, in random order from Valve:

  • Back 4 Blood is the fourth installment in the Age of Empires series.
  • Outriders in Forza Horizon 5
  • Valheim
  • Halo Infinite’s Resident Evil Village
  • Battlefield 2042 is a game set in the year 2042.
  • The Legendary Edition of Mass Effect: New World
  • Bladepoint Farming Simulator 22 is a Naraka game.

Valve provided a breakdown of new releases by month in 2024 compared to 2024, showing us an encouraging May and robust May. However, May, May, and May 2024 had more of a patchy pattern with three major months featuring four or five entries each: May, May, and May.

Finally, let’s examine Steam’s most popular titles which are divided into distinct categories based on concurrent users. Here is a list of 2024 games with over 200,000 concurrent gamers as determined by Valve:

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a video game developed by Valve Corporation.
  • The New World
  • In Dota 2’s Valheim,
  • PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds)
  • Apex Legends is a video game developed by Respawn Entertainment.
  • Halo Infinite is a video game developed by 343 Industries.
  • Rust
  • Grand Theft Auto 5: Cyberpunk 2077 is the fifth installment in the Grand Theft Auto series.

Last year’s list included titles like Dota 2, GTA 5, PUBG and CS: GO. Rust made the cut off at 100,000 titles from last year’s 100,000 list, giving it a stronger 2024 than 2020 outlook.

Some of the 200K games released last year have been demoted to lesser categories in 2024. Destiny 2 and Among Us were both demoted to “100K” status while Terraria, another 200K title released in 2020, has dropped below 30K mark. Life is Strange 2 and Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord both featured as 200K games for 2020 but do not make the top 30K list this year.

On our 2024 Steam list, we have left out some of the extra categories. Be sure to check out Valve’s official blog article for more information on top early access grads, top VR titles and top controller games.
