It's the first Xbox Gameplay Chart of the year. Since the chart's debut at the start of December, Red Dead Redemption 2
has stayed in the top spot, but over the last couple of weeks, Fortnite
has been gaining ground. Has RDR2 stayed at the top of the chart at the start of 2019? Let's take a look at the top 40 most played games in the full chart below.
There is a new title in #1! Fortnite
has indeed managed to unseat Rockstar's cowboy adventure, but not only that, the latter drops into #3 as it is also overtaken by Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
. It isn't all bad news for Rockstar, though, as Grand Theft Auto V
just holds on to a spot in the top 10.
Elsewhere, we see small climbs and small drops, but very few titles move more than five places in either direction. FIFA 18
climbs nine places to re-enter the charts at #32; the title has been dropping in and out of the charts for the last few weeks. Xbox Game Pass provides the rest of the exceptions. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
drops eight places down the chart to #37. With just 6-8 hours estimated for completing the game in its entirety, most people who tried the game through Xbox Game Pass have likely gotten everything they want out of it over the last three weeks. On the other hand, the introduction of ARK: Survival Evolved
into the programme sees it climb 17 places to #18.
Finally, as predicted last week, Celeste
makes a rather impressive debut at #11 thanks to its introduction as the current Xbox One Game With Gold. The remaining Xbox Game Pass new releases, Farming Simulator 17
and Life Is Strange 2
, are nowhere to be seen.
Next week sees the introduction of Absolver
, and Just Cause 3
into Xbox Game Pass, so will we see any new entries from those into the chart? Don't forget to tune in to see what next week will bring, and in the meantime, you can subscribe to get alerts for all future Xbox Gameplay Charts here
