‘Elden Ring’ Has Already Sold A Staggering Number Of Copies
It seems that Elden Ring has become the most popular game on the internet. I don’t know if you can make one scroll on Twitter and not see a funny screenshot or clip of someone narrowly avoiding the death penalty in the most stunning way possible.
It’s no surprise, I think, to learn that FromSoftware has been selling the latest quite well. It’s selling really well. The game had sold 12 million units worldwide on Monday, 14 March. This is a large number of people who are facing the wrath from, well, everything in the Lands Between.
It’s amazing to see how many people have been playing Elden Ring. Hidetaka Miyazaki is the president and CEO at FromSoftware and the director of Elden Ring. We hope that players have a lot of fun exploring the vast world and confronting its many dangers. We appreciate your support.
While 12 million seems like a huge number, I do not think it is necessary to remind you. However, to put this in perspective, Dark Souls 3 had sold ten million copies as of May 2020, four years after its publication. It’s amazing to have done that in three weeks. For comparison, Marvel’s Spider-Man sold 13.2 Million copies less than a year after its debut. So unless anyone decides to hate Elden Ring, it is certain to surpass that.
Not only is it happening quickly, but also the removal of copies from the shelves. Elden Ring is already producing some amazing results. In the last few days, one very talented player completed an Any% run in under thirty minutes. That’s 90 times faster than the 45-hour average game playthrough – it’s almost as scary as it is impressive. I’m not going to volunteer to do anything better.
