Elden Ring Has A Massive Start In The UK

Perhaps the most anticipated game of 2022 is FromSoftware’s Elden Ring. The numbers also seem to support the theory, as Elden Ring is the biggest video game launch in the UK since 2018 outside of Call of Duty and FIFA releases, according to Game Sales Data (GSD).

IN GamesIndustry.biz report, Elden Ring sold 2.5 times as many copies as Horizon Forbidden West in its launch week last month. In addition, Elden Ring’s first-week sales are larger than those of Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin Creed Valhalla.

Now playing: Elden Ring – everything you need to know

In terms of game format and platform split, GSD figures show that 68% of Elden Ring’s total UK sales were digital. Nearly 85% of those who played Elden Ring on Xbox purchased the game digitally, compared to 73% for PC players. For PlayStation players, the preference for physical and digital media was almost evenly split, with digital downloads accounting for just over 50%.
Of all copies sold in the UK, Elden Ring sold almost evenly across all platforms on which it was released. GSD’s physical and digital data show that PlayStation 5 accounts for 32% of sales, with PC and Xbox not far behind at 30% and 29%, respectively. The outlier here is that the PlayStation 4 version only contributed 9%. Xbox sales are also being combined for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S platforms, as opposed to the PlayStation platforms.
In GameSpot’s review of Elden Ring in development, Tamur Hussain said, “Elden Ring takes the pieces of what came before and turns them into something that will go down in history as one of the greatest achievements of all time: a triumph in design and creativity.”, and an open-world game that differs not so much in what it does, but in what it does.”
