FromSoftware is celebrating a landmark year, as – currently, at the time of writing – Elden Ring is still the best-selling game of 2022, while retaining quite a high spot in sales (second) in the month of April. It’s worth noting that Elden Ring also managed to edge out Call of Duty Vanguard for that top spot in units sold this 2022, which is no lean feat considering the COD franchise.

The report comes from Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group, who stated this on Twitter:

US NPD PREMIUM GAMES – Elden Ring was the 2nd best-selling title of April 2022. Elden Ring remains the best-selling game of 2022 year-to-date and has surpassed Call of Duty: Vanguard to become the best-selling premium game of the trailing 12-month period ending April 2022.

Elden Ring released back in February, and for it to retain its steam for two months is an impressive feat. It will be interesting to see just how long it can keep this up, especially as more heavy hitters come to the fray later this year.

It’s no wonder Elden Ring is enjoying all this attention, as Sean writes here in his review: “It’s remarkable how well From has managed to expand to a truly open world while keeping their core gameplay intact as well as building on top of it in one massive and impressively polished package. Elden Ring is clearly the culmination of FromSoftware’s past 13 years of experience and development philosophy of the souls franchise. Miyazaki and FromSoftware have crafted something so massive, special, wondrous and triumphant that it’s unfathomable how they can top it. Easily FromSoftware’s best game to date and a genuine masterpiece.”
