Assassin's Creed Valhalla and the launch of the Xbox Series X|S are just over two weeks away, and it seems players have been prepping by booting up Assassin's Creed Odyssey: it's back in the top 40 in our latest Xbox Gameplay Chart. Here is the top 40 Xbox Gameplay Chart for the week ending October 25th, 2020.

As you can see, the top half of our Xbox Gameplay Chart has refused to budge an inch this week, right down to 17th. This is most possibly one of the last weeks where the chart will be so unmoving, or so dominated by current-gen games. Starting this Thursday, October 29th, with Watch Dogs: Legion, the Holiday 2020 period of major game launches begins. In just over two weeks, the Xbox Series X|S will launch, alongside Assassin's Creed Valhalla, with Cyberpunk 2077 not too far behind. It's likely our Xbox Gameplay Chart could soon look very different.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is one of the longest-surviving single-player games on our Xbox Gameplay Chart, often popping back in like this. This week, it sits at 31st. Higher up the chart, Dead by Daylight has jumped up three spaces to 21st following the start of its Eternal Blight event. Forza Motorsport 7 isn't doing quite so well: it's taken quite a drop, falling six places to 24th. ARK, PUBG, Black Ops 4, Smite, and For Honor are all holding on at 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, and 29th, while Fallout 76 has hopped up one space to 30th following its free-to-play week. Bethesda will be dropping a free Steel Dawn update in December with new NPCs, locations, gear, and quests, so it's possible Fallout 76 might climb a little further back up the chart.

Borderlands 3, meanwhile, has dropped two places to 35th. The second Season Pass for Borderlands 3 will soon launch with two new add-ons. The Season Pass will be available to buy on November 10th — alongside Borderlands 3's free next-gen upgrade — with the Designer's Cut available first, followed by the second half of Season 2 with the Director's Cut in Spring 2021. Both the Director's Cut and the Designer's Cut will offer new modes, while the Designer's Cut offers an additional Skill Tree for each Vault Hunter. It's possible this DLC content will boost Borderlands 3 back up the chart.

Battlefield V has re-joined the chart at 38th, with Black Ops II hauling itself up one space to 39th. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13th, and it will be interesting to see whether this has an add-on effect for other Black Ops games, as Valhalla has for AC Odyssey. This week's two disappearances, meanwhile, are Warframe and Brawlhalla, which have both dipped back out of the chart after re-joining last week. Looking ahead, we still have Watch Dogs: Legion and The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope to launch in October, followed by the heavy-hitters in November, as well as the huge wave of new games joining Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC in October and November, including Celeste. What do you expect to see in the top ten of the Xbox Gameplay Chart next? Will Watch Dogs: Legion make it? Let us know in the comments!
