Battlefield 2042 and Forza Horizon 5 Outclass Competition on Steam

Last week on Steam was dominated by Battlefield 2042 and Forza Horizon 5. The game left the competition in the dust in terms of sales.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Battlefield 2042 preorders are selling like hotcakes;
  2. An excellent debut for Forza Horizon 5 and the successful release of Jurassic World Evolution 2;
  3. Gamers rushed to buy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Upgrade DLC.

As every Monday, the list of the biggest (by revenue) bestsellers of the previous week on Steam was released. The leader turned out to be Battlefield 2042. Preorders of various editions took three places in the top 10, including the first. The fact that the purchase of the Ultimate edition and the Gold edition enables the buyers to start playing earlier (the Early Access launched on November 12) helped sell the title.

The racing game Forza Horizon 5, which debuted last week, is also doing very well. Different editions of this game took the second and third place in the ranking. This is all the greater achievement, because the game is also available in Game Pass and Microsoft Store.

The latest work of Playground Games simply plows through the competition.Forza Horizon 5 has already been played by over 8.2 million people. Just three days ago the counter showed "only" 6 million.

Age of Empires IV, Football Manager 2022 and Elden Ring preorders continue to sell very well. The strategy game Jurassic World Evolution 2 also made a successful debut.

It is also worth noting the seventh place taken by The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Upgrade. The new edition of the game was made available to owners of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition for free in the form of an update, but to unlock additional content, you need to purchase this DLC costing around $20. As you can see, there is no shortage of buyers.
