TA Gaming Stats - May 25th to 31st 2015

By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period May 25th to 31st 2015.

Welcome to part two of this week's stats update (part one here).

The Big Numbers
46,024 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 67,146 games between them (2,167 different games).

7,504 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 12,315 games between them (1,580 different games).

125,176 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,861,933 achievements online between them (68,737 different achievements).

Xbox One
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt continues to dominate as the most started game by a good long way, despite dropping from 20,000 to under 6,000 starters a week after release. It loses out on the clean sweep for achievements won thanks to the release of ODST for Halo: The Master Chief Collection which steals the top two spots. Two new releases in the forms of Rogue Legacy and Beach Buggy Racing are the second and third most started titles with between 1,400 and 1,600 starters. Unfortunately BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition doesn't make the table. Most of the rest of the started games reflect the last few weeks, though Alien: Isolation makes an appearance in tenth with almost 600 starters thanks to a sale.

Recent sale title Unmechanical: Extended Edition remains the third most completed title with the completions only dropping by 30 to just under 160. The Destiny also hold strong with over 110 following the release of "House of Wolves".

For the most part there's not much in the way of change on the 360 tables as "Games with Gold" freebie F1 2013 leads over older freebies. With the numbers dropping for that game though, Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel does sneak in a number of spots on Achievements Won.

As with the One version, Destiny (Xbox 360) gets a completion boost to fourth place, this time with over 30 completions. I'd wager a good number of those are the same people taking advantage of the cross-platform unlocking. New DLC also puts The Evil Within (Xbox 360) high on the table in fifth with 30 completions.

It's a particularly slow week for XBLA as everything looks very familiar (Terraria (Xbox 360) is most started but Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is most played and completed). The only major change is that the previous week's new episode release for Life Is Strange (Xbox 360) sees the game slip from most completed to second most completed.

A few weeks after it was released on WP, Overkill 3 (Win 8) makes its way to W8 as the third most started game of the week with almost 100 starters. Tiny Troopers (Win 8) and Microsoft Solitaire Collection (Win 8) continue to rule though. Overkill also manages to nudge two achievements into Achievements Won at fourth and sixth.

Over on WP we're spoilt by not one but two new releases. Both free, they both manage to grab around 1,700 starters. Monster Go! (WP) takes the crown though, just 21 starters above Lara Croft: Relic Run (WP). Lara claims a small victory though by having the most earned achievement (and the seventh), whilst Monster GO fills up the eight remaining slots. Assassin's Creed Pirates (WP) turns up in seventh thanks to the week's sale.

After losing its second place spot in the previous week to Role-Playing, Shooter takes down all the competition and launches itself into first thanks mostly to ODST. Something that's hidden on the One tables due to ODST and Witchet and the XBLA tables thanks to the Minecraft domination is the fact that the fourth episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series was released. Its effect is shown here though as Adventure clambers up from tenth to seventh.

Total TrueAchievements won by Genre

That's all for this week. Next week we'll see how the changeover of "Games with Gold" impacts the numbers as MASSIVE CHALICE is released free along with The Swapper, Sparkle Unleashed and SteamWorld Dig (what is this, "S" week?).
