Elden Ring, the latest open-world action-RPG from Dark Souls developer From Software, has reached a massive sales milestone. According to publisher Bandai Namco, the award-winning game has now sold over 20 million copies worldwide, making it the most successful game in not only the developer’s history but the publisher’s as well.
According to Bandai Namco’s latest report, Elden Ring sold over 20 million copies across both physical sales and digital versions including Steam. The game launched on PS4 and Xbox One as well as PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC to universal critical acclaim. It went on to win Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2022, beating out the likes of Sony’s God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West as well as Nintendo’s Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

A statement from both Bandai Namco and From Software reads:
“The companies would like to thank everyone who has played this game from the bottom of their hearts, and will continue to develop various ways for the fans to enjoy the world of Elden Ring in the future.”
Elden Ring evolved the Souls formula by implementing a massive open-world filled with hundreds of secrets, bosses and locations while still mostly retaining the challening core gameplay and strong world-building that From Software has become known for. It achieved the highest review scores of any game in 2022, going on to set the record for most Game of the Year awards won in gaming history, toppling previous record holders The Last of Us Part II and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Last year, From Software added the Collosseum PvP mode to Elden Ring in an update which opened up the previously sealed off Colosseums in Limgrave, Leyndell and Caelid. Players can engage in enclosed PvP battles such as duels, free-for-alls and team fights.
Elden Ring is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
