Horizon Forbidden West has been named the UK’s fourth best-selling physical game of 2022, beating LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, God of War Ragnarok, and Elden Ring into the top 10. The UK’s best-selling physical game titles of the year are as follows:
- FIFA 23
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
- Pokemon Legend: Arceus
- Horizon Forbidden West
- Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
- Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Ragnarok God of War
- Nintendo Switch Sports
- Alden Ring
Of course, many of the games that made the top 10 have only been available for a few months, meaning that if they had spent as much time on the shelves as Horizon Forbidden West, Guerrilla Games’ title might not have charted as high. However, it’s interesting to note how Alden Ring managed to make it into the top 10 despite only launching a week after Horizon Forbidden West and the massive hype surrounding it.
It’s important to reiterate that this particular top 10 only covers the best-selling games broken down by physical means, e.g. GamesIndustry.biz The report notes how 72 percent of the UK now buys their games digitally. As such, a ranked list based on purchased titles PS Store And other built-in console shops may look completely different. Still, this will be welcome news for Sony as the PS5, the PS4 exclusive, has continued to sell since its release in February. Burning Shores, a Horizon Forbidden western expansion, arrives in April 2023.
