Tom Clancy’s The Division was YouTube’s top trending game of March 2016, the website has announced via a press release. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as the game broke sales records within 24 hours of its release and was quite a hit with players.

NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat X made a return and settled for second place, thanks to the March release of Kombat Pack 2. The full list is as follows:

  1. Tom Clancy’s The Division: The Division had the biggest first week of any new video game franchise, and it’s our #1 trending game of March.
  2. Mortal Kombat X: This 2015 title returns to the trending charts thanks to the March release of Kombat Pack 2, featuring new characters like Leatherface.

  4. EA Sports UFC 2: The first sequel in EA Sports’ newest franchise.
  5. Dark Souls III: The punishingly difficult series returns to the U.S. next week, but, because it’s already out in Japan, gamers are getting a jump on the Let’s Plays.
  6. Pokkén Tournament: The Pokémon game where they finally just hit each other made its worldwide console debut in March.
  7. Stardew Valley: This indie game about inheriting and maintaining your grandfather’s farm made a huge debut in March, led by Let’s Plays from Markiplier and Jacksepticeye.
