Recent years have seen the generation of great expectations every time there is a new title from the Japanese company on the way and with ELDEN RING it has reached the highest point at this time. Hidetaka Miyazaki’s new work is already on the market and the first successful results come from the United Kingdom.
ELDEN RING makes history in the UK
GfK revealed last week’s best-selling video games list, which was marked by the release of ELDEN RING and FromSoftware’s new beast did not disappoint commercially at all. Initially, it was confirmed that after its debut it immediately occupied the first position, breaking the dream of the first place that Horizon Forbidden West had obtained after its launch on PlayStation 5. Later, ELDEN RING made history in this European market by becoming the “Souls ” with better launch sales, surpassing what was achieved by Dark Souls III, delivery that had the first place in this section.
