Deus Ex: Human Revolution storming Steam charts

The latest entry in one of PC gaming's most beloved series is proving understandably popular on its premiere digital distribution service.

Voodoo Extreme noted Deus Ex: Human Revolution is in second place on Steam's statistics page.

At time of writing - Steam's quietest hour - the Eidos Montreal title has 29,585 players on Steam, but peaked at 56,099 earlier today. During busier periods, both Counter-strike titles has passed Human Revolution, but outside of multiplayer-dominated hours, Human Revolution is riding high at the top of the paid charts, with only the free-to-play, perennially popular multiplayer title Team Fortress 2 ranked higher - and not by much.

The first Deus Ex game was released exclusively for PC, although a poorly-received PS2 port was produced a few years later. The game is considered one of the highlights of the late 90's, early 2000's golden ear of PC gaming.

Human revolution currently holds an 89 Metacritic ranking on all three platforms; the original game sits at 90.
