All Fallout Games Ranked Worst to Best TV Series

Fallout 4 Shoots to Top of European Sales Charts After TV Show’s Release

The Fallout TV show, which launched last week to extremely positive reviews, seemed to ignite a burning desire by viewers to play the Fallout games. Earlier this week, Steam reported that several Fallout games had suddenly seen a surge in players on the platform, in some cases even trippling its player count. A new report now reveals that Fallout 4, which is clearly the popular choice for returning players and newcomers, has shot to the top of European sales charts showing a whopping increase of 7,500% week-on-week. provided the stats showing that Fallout 4 dominated European sales charts this week, with most of those sales happening on PC. Specifically, it showed an increase of 7,500% week-on-week, meaning this is the most popular that the game has ever been, possibly since its launch back in 2015.

It’s also worth noting that Fallout 4 (along with virtually every other Fallout game) is readily available to play on Xbox Game Pass, so those player figures could be much higher than what is being reported on right now.

It’s no surprise that Fallout 4 seems to be the dominant entry for players to turn to. Stylistically, it’s the closest in tone to the Fallout TV show, not to mention that it’s also the last major single-player game in the franchise (until Fallout 5, which will release after The Elder Scrolls 6). It also seems like players aren’t too thrilled about the idea of journeying into the wastelands with friends online in Fallout 76.

Meanwhile, Fallout: New Vegas has also seen a spike in players, which is to be expected after the cliffhanger ending of season 1 raised more questions than answers. Newcomers might also want to experience the story of New Vegas to better contextualise future seasons. If you’re still on the fence, make sure you read our piece on why Fallout: New Vegas is still worth playing in 2024.
