Valve’s monthly list of the top 20 new releases on Steam is out covering the November releases. Halo Infinite, Battlefield 2042, and Forza Horizon 5 being on the list is unsurprising. They are some of the biggest releases of the year, and as we close out the year they will most probably appear in Game of the Year conversations. Ruined King: A League of Legends Story also made the list.

“This month features the debut Riot Forge RPG, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story,” reads a Steam blog post. “It’s great to see positive reactions from nostalgic players, fond of familiar characters and lore, alongside praise from newcomers, thrilled with the unique game design and art style.”

Duoyi Games’ Gunfire Reborn was the top release of the month.

“Chinese developers continue to bring popular new content to Steam, while finding increased success with players all around the world,” read the blog. “Gunfire Reborn is a perfect example of this success: developed by a studio in China, but gaining the majority of players from other regions of the world.”
