"Star Wars Battlefront II" enters Gamestop's best-seller chart in first place, while superhero punch-up "Injustice 2" arrives on PC as "Justice League" debuts in theaters, and 2017's Fantastic Arcade experimental game collection makes a splash on Itch.
With Electronic Arts preferring to sell PC games through its own service, Origin, there's not much opportunity to see how its latest big release, "Star Wars" tie-in "Battlefront II," fares against similar opposition.
"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" and "Divinity: Original Sin 2" remain installed at the top of the Steam and GOG charts respectively, while "Call of Duty II" holds Steam's second place, where team action game "Rainbow Six: Siege" rises after a fresh influx of players liked what they saw over a free trial weekend.
GameStop, however, is one of few venues away from Origin that does sell EA titles alongside those from other publishers, and it's there that "Star Wars Battlefront II" takes the chart's top spot; another sci-fi shooter, "Destiny 2," hangs on to fifth.
Arriving on PC three days before the November 17 feature film debut of ensemble movie "Justice League," well-received fighting game "Injustice 2" occupies both first and fifth positions on Fanatical, by virtue of standard and season pass editions.
On Itchio, the latest annual collection from Austin, Texas indie game collective Juegos Rancheros lodges itself high up the chart.
The 2017 Fantastic Arcade Bundle contains five new projects from folk that worked on "Panoramical," "Fjords," "Beglitched," "Realistic Kissing Simulator" and "Black Gold," with proceeds supporting the Juegos Rancheros organization.
