This week there really is one ring to rule them all â€“ Bandai-Namcoâ€™s Elden Ring is the UKâ€™s no.1, and all signs point to it being the fastest selling FromSoftware title ever.
Indeed, it seems the onslaught of 10/10 review scores â€“ leading it to become one of the highest-rated games of all time â€“ have sent sales into the stratosphere, with over 807k concurrent users on Steam during launch. Thatâ€™s a huge step up from Dark Souls IIIâ€™s 129k all-time peak.
In the UK retail charts, it tops the all-formats top 40, the PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series individual format charts. All the charts, basically.
GI.biz reports itâ€™s the third fastest-selling game of the year behind PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus and Horizon Forbidden West. This means it had a stronger first week than Dying Light 2 Stay Human.
EAâ€™s GRID Legends parked up at a not particularly impressive #18. The timing is a little odd for Codemastersâ€™ latest racer, arriving mere days before the anticipated Gran Turismo 7.
With Elden Ring ruling the chart, Horizon Forbidden West falls to #2 while PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus drops to #3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and FIFA 22 hold onto #4 and #5.
Call of Duty: Vanguard climbed to #7, Dying Light 2 Stay Human fell from #3 to #7, Animal Crossing: New Horizons dropped two places to #8, Minecraft sunk to #9, and then at #10 itâ€™s Grand Theft Auto: The Definitive Edition â€“ up from #14.
