Icarus, new from the creator of DayZ, tops fresh Steam charts

Icarus, a survival game with a vast open world, has been released on Steam. Dean Hall, the creator of DayZ, is responsible for developing a new title.

Although Icarus turned out to be at the top of the fresh Steam chart, where games are ordered by profit for the week, gamers met the novelty half-heartedly. To illustrate, the game receives mixed reviews from the audience, and the peak online has not yet exceeded 50k people.

The leader of last week, Farming Simulator 22, is located on the third line, overtaking Cyberpunk 2077, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Battlefield 2042. Worth mentioning that the latter developers recently announced the creation of an entire “connected Battlefield universe.”

In addition, the top ten include pre-orders of the Halo Infinite story campaign coming out in two days, as well as Forza Horizon 5, which is not ready to leave the top.

The peak online Icarus has reached 47,370 users almost immediately after the release. However, when writing the news, there are nearly as many active players in the game, so the brainchild of the RocketWerkz studio still has a chance to jump over the previous record shortly.

Moreover, Icarus has 55% positive reviews in the Valve store. Reviewers complain about the overall dampness of the project, including poor optimization, saying that if they decided to release it now, they should have at least hung up the early access bar. However, the core gameplay came out quite well, according to players’ reviews.
