March was a very big month.
Top Steam releases March 2020

Valve just released their list of the biggest Steam releases for March 2020. Included in the list of games included are games like Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Half-Life: Alyx, DOOM Eternal, and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord amongst others.

Valve also notes that a fair number of March's new releases also made use of the new standalone soundtrack feature that Valve rolled out recently. Some of those games that make use of the new soundtrack system include Yes, Your Grace, State of Decay 2, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Valve also noted that a lot of March's biggest releases are follow-ups to some really popular franchises. Hell, DOOM Eternal alone is part of a franchise that extends all the way back to 1993. Half-Life began back in 1998. To think that we got new entries in both of these franchises in the same month in 2020 is just incredible stuff.

You should check out all of March 2020's hottest Steam releases for yourself. There were a lot of great games released and it's very possible that you weren't aware of all of them.

With this post, we’re unveiling our monthly Top Release list for March. As a reminder, we showcase the top 20 titles released for the month, measured by the revenue generated during the first two weeks after release. Since free to play products don’t always generate revenue, we also list the top 5 free to play games, based on total unique players accumulated during their two week launch windows.

March continued to demonstrate some of the themes that we’re always excited to see. They are worth summarizing this month as well:
  • Games this month were developed in 14 different countries – check the entire list below for specifics.
  • 8 games either entering into or graduating from Early Access.
  • 13 games this month feature support for controllers or other input devices.
