Xbox Gameplay Chart: Week Ending March 31st, 2019

By Rebecca Smith,
At the top of this week's Xbox Gameplay Chart, Apex Legends and Fortnite fight for supremacy. It seems like nothing else is capable of coming close to them right now, but Generation Zero, Final Fantasy VII, and a trio of Xbox Game Pass titles all arrived today. How did they all fare? Check out the top 40 most played games in the Gameplay Chart below:

Once again, Apex Legends and Fortnite have swapped places. Fortnite regains the top spot by quite a margin, with Apex Legends dropping to #2. Both games double the number of players from the #3 title, Rainbow Six Siege. Again, most of the top 10 games stay relatively stable, with Forza Horizon 4 dropping out of the top 10 to make way for ROBLOX, which climbs five spots to #8.

The only game to drop a significant number of places this week is Assassin's Creed Odyssey. This drops eight places to #31 despite the release of the latest DLC chapter. In better news, there are more significant climbers. The release of the Firestorm mode in Battlefield V sees the game climb seven places to #11. Despite the absence of the R10 Update in the Xbox One edition of Minecraft, that version still climbs six spots to #21. The continuing success of the Black Prior's Riposte Event in For Honor also sees the game climb 11 spots to #25.

The continuing success of the Call of Duty franchise sees Black Ops III climb ten spots to #29, while Call of Duty: WWII re-enters at #36, and Black Ops II makes its debut at #38. Other re-entries are found at #37 and #39 with Battlefield 1 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim respectively, the latter no doubt benefitting from the ongoing anniversary event. The only other new entry is Borderlands 2, which will have benefitted from the recent announcement of Borderlands 3, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, and a Ultra HD patch.

Of course, the above means that none of the new releases enter the chart at all. Neither Generation Zero or Final Fantasy VII were anywhere to be seen. In terms of Game Pass releases, only Vampyr came close to troubling the charts, just missing out on a top 40 spot. With no notable retail releases for this week, we'll be relying on new Games with Gold and Game Pass titles to shake up the chart for next week. Games with Gold get The Technomancer, while Game Pass will get Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. Will either title make an appearance? 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.
