Apparently a lot of people have read my test for Elden Ring ** and then followed my purchase recommendation (“Elden Ring, despite a few quirks, has followed the strongest game of from software so far”). How else can you explain that the partly sticky open world adventure not only sells itself more often than all previous games from From Software, but that Elden Ring also puts success franchises like Call of Duty? Just, does not work (“cough”).

Elden Ring? It’s like cut bread!

According to Publisher Bandai Namco’s latest financial report, Elden Ring is said to have sold more than 13.4 million times worldwide. Elden Ring already has about half of the sales together, which the entire Dark-Souls trilogy has combined for itself over her entire lifespan. And as far as our “Call of Duty” claim is concerned, Elden Ring in the United States was able to sell itself more often in two months than Vanguard in six months (via Forbes). Bye, bye, niche! Hello mainstream!

The current award of the Sales Awards from the Game (Association of the German Games industry) shows that Elden Ring (buy now) is also very well sold in Germany. For 500,000 units sold, there was the special prize, which has so far been very rarely awarded. At big sales hits such as Mario Party Superstars, FIFA 22 or the agricultural simulator 22. Here, too, Call of Duty: Vanguard has been empty, just like Horizon Forbidden West, Pokémon legends: Arceus or other blockbusters from the last Time.

Kirby and Vader are also winners!

We also do not want to withhold the other two Sales Award winners from April: A few weeks after the official release, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga crack the 200,000 titles sold and thus get the “Game Sales Award” in Platin. The “Game Sales Award” in gold goes to Kirby in April and the forgotten country, which was able to achieve over 100,000 sales.
