PC download charts: 'The Orange Box', 'Civilization V'
Monday 06 December 2010
With online charts still showing the signs of seasonal sales, Valve's five-game
Orange Box collection finds yet more owners on the Steam store, and
Civilization V's popularity refuses to wane.
Pre-orders for Bad Company 2's Vietnam expansion, due December 21, gather momentum, and while the classic Baldur's Gate adventures are found on Good Old Games' chart, its spiritual successor Dragon Age enjoys a sales boost at Impulse.
GamersGate reap the rewards for slashing prices on the Europa Universalis games, with most shoppers choosing to top up on expansion packs for the third in the series. Its chart domination was disrupted only by a new expansion pack for ArmA II.
