Elden Ring is the most recent game from the beloved developer, FromSoftware. The game is the culmination of years of experience being put together for the first truly open world FromSoftware title. The game has been a huge success both financially and critically. Elden Ring managed to sell 12 million copies less than a month after release, obliterating previous FromSoftware sales records.
Six weeks later Elden Ring has shown no signs of slowing down. Steam has recently released the sales data for last week’s sales and Elden Ring seems to have maintained the top spot.
The data comes courtesy of SteamDB and shows Elden Ring with the rest of the games in the top sellers of the week.
As the image shows, the title has kept the top spot for the last two weeks. However, the game has stayed in this spot for the sixth week in a row at this point. This is certainly interesting considering the bad press the game received for its less than spectacular PC port. Perhaps in this case, the game’s quality is able to make up for the less than stellar PC version.
Elden Ring has been a far bigger game than anybody could have expected. Prior to its release, Bandai Namco had predicted sales of around 4 million in the first month. The game has tripled that amount in less than a month, going above and beyond expectations. With the positive reviews and thriving online community, it would not be surprising to see the game’s sales continue at this pace.
Furthermore, we should see DLC releases for the game at some point in typical FromSoftware fashion. With a dedicated community and a passionate team behind the project, the game continues to soar to new heights. In an era where games are released incomplete and full of bugs, Elden Ring is a breath of fresh air and has cemented its place as one of From’s best works yet.
