By Rebecca Smith,
While it won't surprise you to learn that Fortnite continues to top the Xbox Gameplay Chart, a week of new content and new announcements during E3 has led to a lot of movement elsewhere despite the lack of new retail releases. You can see how they the top 40 most played games are looking in the Gameplay Chart below:

Once again, we'll start at the top. Fortnite stays firm in the #1 spot with a significant lead. However, Rainbow Six Siege climbs a single place to #2 with the start of Operation Phantom Sight. This means Minecraft drops to #3. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 also climbs one place to #5 thanks to the start of the Days of Summer event. However, the most notable shift in the top 10 is Forza Horizon 4, which climbs six places to #7 due to the release of the LEGO Speed Champions DLC. This means FIFA 19 finally drops out of the top 10, although it only falls two places to #11.

The biggest climber of the week accolade goes to Borderlands 2, which climbs a massive 21 places to #12 because of the released of the Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary DLC. Other significant climbers include Sea of Thieves, which climbed seven places to #17 by offering exclusive Halo content during the E3 week, and The Division 2, which climbed five places to #18 thanks to a free play weekend. Gears of War 4 also managed to climb five spots to #22, possibly due to the game being included in the new Xbox Game Pass for PC programme.

There are several games that drop significantly this week too. Mortal Kombat 11 drops six spots to #27 for no particular reason other than waning popularity, while the same reason sees Dauntless drop a massive 13 places to #30. For Honor falls five places to #31 now that players have tried out the Shadows of the Hitokiri in-game event, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey also falls five places to #35 despite the release of the Story Creator mode.

We only get one new entry: State of Decay 2 at #37 as the release of the Heartland update brings players back to the game. However, a free weekend sees Fallout 76 shoot back into the chart at #15, while the introduction of Metro Exodus into Xbox Game Pass sees the game re-enter the chart at #25. Brawlhalla is the final game to re-enter the chart; its new Adventure Time characters were enough for the game to reach #33 this week.

What can we expect next week? There are notable new releases in the form of Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, while new DLC expansions appear for Jurassic World Evolution and Neverwinter. Will we see any of these titles? Meanwhile, the new Xbox Game with Gold, Rivals of Aether, could make an appearance too. We're not expecting any more Game Pass titles this month, but then Microsoft has never been above surprising us either. 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.
