Elden Ring Sales Data Indicates People on All Platforms Maidenless
The year’s largest game, or at least the most serious contender for the biggest game title, is out three months early in 2022. FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has become the largest US seller of this year and is climbing the sales charts to rival major releases in the past 12 months.
According to Elden Ring, according to NPD market research via analyst Mat Piscatella Elden Ring’s debut made it the bestseller in February in the US. The Bandai Namco published action game RPG was the number two seller in the United States for any game released within the past 12 months. For now, Call of Duty: Vanguard is the only US release that has done better.
NPD data shows a positive picture of Tarnished across all platforms as well. In February, Elden Ring was US’s number one bestseller on Steam and Xbox Series. It ended the month at the number two spot on PlayStation. Horizon II – Forbidden West, a game for the Sony console, was the only one to surpass the collaboration between George R. R. Martin (novelist) and Hidetaka Miyazaki (director).
Call to Duty: Vanguard came in second place for those who don’t know. This means that Elden Ring was able to pass some massive players. In the last 12 months, there has been Resident Evil village in 2021, Battlefield 204 and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl .
SteamDB charts show that Elden Ring looks healthy on Valve’s platform. It sits at sixth in Steam’s ranking for the highest concurrent players count. It’s currently at number six in Steam’s rankings for highest concurrent player count, with just 100,000 players between it and Cyberpunk2077. It’s now at just over 570,000 users, which is unlikely to see it surpass the CDPR RPG. However, that’s still an amazing launch for FromSoftware.
The 2009 release of Demon’s Souls was the only Souls title I’ve ever won to completion. However, I did play Dark Souls II. It’s amazing to think back on something that seemed small just a few years ago in high school and transform into this huge hit with Eldenring now as an adult.
It’s something I have repeated a million times since launch. However, I am terrible at every Souls game. But, the RPG’s actual phenomena fascinate me, such as the speedrunning records and this tricking invader to believe they are NPC. It’s hard for me to keep my head together enough to get Limgrave out, but I do enjoy it. I’m going to watch and hang out.
