By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period October 26th to November 1st 2015.

Welcome to a double dip of stats from the end of October into the first week of November here on TA. Apologies I missed getting this one out last week but I was a little busy. This article is week one and here's week two.

The Big Numbers
104,308 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 141,446 games between them (2,034 different games).

11,031 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 13,977 games between them (1,160 different games).

156,298 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 2,609,060 achievements online between them (53,974 different achievements).

Xbox One
It was always going to grab big numbers but Halo 5: Guardians truly stomps over all the competition in its release week with over ten times more starters than the nearest game at over 65,000. It also naturally sweeps Achievements Won clean and, with that many players, even manages to sneak onto the bottom of Completed with over 150 completions.

The next most popular game is Need for Speed with 6,400 starters a week before the game's official release thanks to early EA Access...access. Other new release WWE 2K16 settles for a mid-table position in sixth with almost 3,300 starters whilst Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition and Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition don't make the charts.

New Games with Gold freebie Pneuma: Breath of Life sits in third above its predecessor The Walking Dead with 6,300 starters in just one day. With easy completions they both appear on Completed too in fourth and second. The recent final episode of Tales from the Borderlands keeps that at the top of Competed while Destiny sees an increase in completions from 500 to 1,000, putting it in third. Elsewhere, a new DLC release turns up to put Batman: Arkham Knight into seventh with 250 completions and, just a week after its release, Assassin's Creed Syndicate grabs over 240 in eighth.

New Games with Gold freebie DiRT 3 steps into first with 680 starters and the top two places on Achievements Won. Apart from that, the Shocktober sale has an impact on the tables, bringing with it Titanfall (Xbox 360), Alice: Madness Returns and Dead Island Riptide (Xbox 360) in second, fourth and sixth. Titanfall is so popular that it also grabs six places on Achievements Won. The final two spots there are given to Destiny (Xbox 360), which also jumps to the top of Completed with over 100 completions thanks to The Taken King.

In its final week of freeness, The Walking Dead (Xbox 360) stays on top of Started and sweeps Achievements Won while the Halloween sale gives Costume Quest 2 (Xbox 360) a step up into eighth with 70 starters, as well as a sixth place position on Completed with its easy completion.

Although Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP) still leads on Started and sweeps Achievements Won, new release Trucking 3D (Win 8) turns up in second with 130 starters. Although it doesn't seem to contain the usual free-to-play grind, glitched achievements on release keep it from making it onto Completed.

The previous week's new release Runemals (WP) almost doubles its starters this week, going from 650 to over 1,100. As with Windows, Trucking 3D (WP) grabs second with almost 280 starters. Also as with Windows, glitched achievements stop it from getting completions. Both games share Achievements Won almost in half.

Shooter gets shot up from third far into the lead thanks to Halo while Pneuma gives Puzzle a bump from off the bottom of the table all the way into fourth. Drift 3 doesn't have quite the same effect on Racing though it might climb in subsequent weeks.
