Outriders peaks at number six in UK sales top 10 – Games charts 3 April

The influence of Game Pass on physical sales is made obvious in this week’s chart, as the otherwise successful Outriders has a muted launch.

By all accounts Outriders has had a very successful launch, proving to be considerably more successful than Marvel’s Avengers from the start, but you’d never guess judging by the retail sales charts.

The game debuted only at number six, as FIFA 21 retook the number one spot thanks to widespread shop discounts.

Outriders’ performance is deceptive though, as the game was available on Game Pass from day one, which explains why 52% of physical sales were on PlayStation 5. The game’s online co-op features also mean that all formats are likely to see more digital sales than normal, which are not counted in these charts.
