12/12/2022 at 11:41 a.m. by Sara Petzold – FIFA 23 and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla are currently significantly discounted on Steam, which lifts the two games directly into the charts of Valve’s online platform. However, both titles pay a high price for it.
A few weeks before Christmas, gaming fans can already buy a whole range of top titles on Steam at a much lower price than before. Among others, FIFA 23 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which are currently at least 60 percent cheaper than the normal price, are among the leaders. This also affects the Steam sales charts.
Despite moderate ratings with top positions in the sales charts
Because both FIFA 23 and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, which are currently available for 28 euros and 20 euros respectively, were able to conquer a place in the top 10 of the currently best-selling titles on Steam. While the first three places in the charts are occupied by Steam Deck, Dwarf Fortress and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla moves up to number 6 as a newcomer. FIFA 23 follows directly behind in number 7.
Both of these are remarkable in that both Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and FIFA 23 only have a balanced rating. Overall, FIFA 23 achieved only 47 percent positive ratings (there are many reasons for this), Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla at least 63 percent. What is also surprising: Assassin’s Creed was released on Steam just a week ago after the Ubisoft U-Turn and was reduced by a whopping 67 percent at least until 5.1.23.
The same applies to FIFA 23, which suffered a 60 percent drop in value within less than three months of its release. It is obvious that this drop in price is also related to the parallel publication on EA Play. Still, this development is unusual and shows that fans may be getting fed up with FIFA’s release policy.
