As seen in the image above, Elden Ring is currently enjoying the top spot for best-selling games, and its expansion is second. Black Myth: Wukong, another highly anticipated release, is in the third spot.

It should be noted that this position stands regardless of free-to-play titles on the list. This further proves how excited fans are for this release, with even major streamers like Kai Cenat recently joining in.

Free-to-play games like Counter-Strike 2, PUBG Battlegrounds, and Destiny are in 3rd, 4th, and 5th place, respectively. This just shows how big Elden Ring has become in the short span of two years.

This level of excitement for an expansion is seldom seen in the industry.

It can compared to the buzz surrounding Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty, which was a huge deal already. Many new players have joined the game, and the ones who are experienced are helping them beat Mohg, Lord of Blood.

Elden Ring has also sold 25 million copies ahead of this expansion, but we expect another major sales update from the studio shortly after this release.
