The top-selling game on Steam is a 254-player Battlefield-style FPS with PS1-era graphics made by four people

BattleBit Remastered is huge-scale modern warfare for $15, and it's pretty darn fun.




There's a good chance you've never heard of the game that's currently blowing up the Steam charts. BattleBit Remastered, released in early access today, is a 254-player FPS that looks like Roblox but plays like Battlefield. At just $15, currently the best-selling paid game on Steam, sitting right behind CS:GO on the global top seller list. Unsurprisingly, it's also in the top ten most-played games right now.


BattleBit's top spot is impressive given its low price and the fact that Steam ranks top sellers by revenue, not copies sold. That means BattleBit is currently making more money than Warzone 2, Starfield, PUBG, and the Steam Deck. Not bad for the four-person team at OkiGames, who's been working on BattleBit in various forms for seven years. 


After playing an hour of BattleBit, it's easy to see why it's an instant success. It's a remarkably fun little FPS that's a lot deeper than it looks. It's got the scale, vehicles, and destruction of a modern Battlefield game, but a lot of milsim qualities from Squad are in there too: proximity chat, buildable defensive structures, bleeds that have to be bandaged, and medic class who has the exclusive ability to heal players. It's very accessible to just hop in and play, but harder core than most multiplayer shooters.
