We knew that Elden Ring was going to be big, but not so big. The action RPG has risen directly to the top of the British physical rankings earlier this week, but according to the physical and digital data compiled by GSD, Elden Ring, in fact, benefits from the greater launch of all non FIFA or Call of Call of Duty from Red Dead. Redemption 2 in 2018. Wow.
Apparently, Elden Ring sold 2.5 times better than Horizon Forbidden West, who was at the top of the rankings a week earlier – even if it is obviously worth keeping in mind that Horizon is an exclusive title to Playstation.
Elden Ring also beat the first big hit strikers Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (November 2020) and CyberPunk 2077 (December 2020), which is incredibly impressive if we consider the massive attraction of the two games. According to some information, more than 60% of Elden Ring’s sales have been digital, which is logical if we consider the PC version.
The only potential key in the work here is that Nintendo does not share digital data, so it is possible that the exclusive Switch titles have also surpassed the latest titles of fromSoftware over the last two years.
Yet this sacred success story. The souls games are popular enough since the era of original Dark Souls, but they have never received this kind of consumer attention.
