Some of you may have heard of a little thing called Elden Ring, a game that launched late last week. Actually, it's probably a lot of you, especially here in the UK. According to digital and physical data supplied by GSD, Elden Ring is the biggest non-COD, non-FIFA launch, since Red Dead Redemption 2.
Rockstar's latest epic released way back in 2018, so yeah, it's safe to say Elden Ring has gotten off to a flyer. FromSoftware's new effort, Elden Ring, tops both the digital-only and the combined sales charts for the week ending February 26th.
You can't say it's not had the proper competition either. February has been absolutely stacked with game releases, including Dying Light 2 and Horizon: Forbidden West. Elden Ring sold 2.5x what Horizon did during this sales week.
The figures also highlight how much the Xbox player base goes digital. Almost 85% of Elden Ring's UK sales on Xbox were digital, compared with just over 50% on PlayStation platforms. That probably explains the huge platform sales gulf discovered earlier this week.
