Elden steps into the Ring
Many must have known the date by heart: probably, the release of FromSoftware’s latest creation marked a turning point, both for the developers of the Japanese studio and for the players who were delighted to explore the lands of the Between Earth and sweat blood and water to discover all the intrigue and the secrets. However, with hindsight, it would seem that the reception from the players is mixed, as we reported this morning: opinions that contrast with the rave reviews sent by the press. In question ? The lack of finishing of the title and the incidents that hit some players during their game, among others.
The studio is well aware of these difficulties and is currently working to ensure that these technical concerns disappear for good. The director of the game, Hidetaka Miyazaki, had taken the time to apologize and defend his approach during an interview with the editorial staff of The New Yorker, while discussing his latest project. In short, in a few days, Elden Ring blew hot and cold within the community of players: what to challenge its hegemony at the end of February? Has the general hype fallen like a soufflé?
The ultimate Souls-like takes the whole podium
We already knew it for a while, but it seemed difficult for recent releases to do well as the month of February was shaping up to be extremely busy. Finally, it only seemed complicated on paper, because everyone gets away with very good scores, in particular SIFU and Horizon Forbidden West. But what about Elden Ring? Thanks to the analysis of the SteamDB platform, we are finally able to know if the FromSoftware game has won the lion’s share this weekend.
Indeed, the latest formula from the creators of the Souls has climbed to the top of the podium for its launch, in just three full days. But better than that, at the close of estimates on February 27, FromSoftware’s title even has the luxury of sitting in second and third place overallthanks to the different editions of the game as can be seen on the message posted on Twitter by SteamDB.
While Dying Light 2: Stay Human is gradually declining, he who was released at the very beginning of the month, and that the Steam Deck is making a remarkable breakthrough in the top 10 mentioned above, Destiny 2 is also experiencing a nice rebound thanks to the release of its expansion The Witch Queen. And yes, it’s not just Bandai Namco and FromSoftware rubbing their hands, Sony can be happy with the attractiveness of Bungie studio productions, which the publisher recently acquired !
