PS4's Best-Selling Games On PSN In October
There's no stopping the Call of Duty juggernaut.
Sony has revealed the top selling games on the US PlayStation Store for the month of October 2019. Some big new games dominate the top of the charts, while Fortnite continues its stranglehold over the free-to-play rankings.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare takes the top spot, which isn't all that surprising considering Activision just announced that its latest big-budget shooter has sold more at launch than any other Call of Duty game this generation. Modern Warfare is a reboot of the popular sub-series, with GameSpot's review in progress saying "it lays a strong foundation for where the Modern Warfare series could go from here."
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, another new October release, comes in second. Sony doesn't release sales figures with its monthly charts, but Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recently said that critical reception and poor sales during Breakpoint's first weeks were disappointing, leading to the delay of Gods & Monsters, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs: Legion. In our own review, we gave Ghost Recon Breakpoint a 4/10, saying, "Breakpoint is a messy, confused game and a ghost of the series' former self."
Third on the list is yet another October release in the shape of Obsidian's The Outer Worlds. The planet-hopping, pulpy sci-fi RPG shares a lot in common with Bethesda's Fallout games. Obsidian developed the cult-favorite Fallout: New Vegas after all, and The Outer Worlds sees the studio branch out to create its own distinct world within a similar RPG structure. We gave it a 9/10 in GameSpot's review, saying, "The Outer Worlds is consistently compelling throughout, and it's a superb example of how to promote traditional RPG sensibilities in a sharp, modern experience."
FIFA 20 and Minecraft round out the rest of the top five. The only other October release to crack into the top 20 is WWE 2K20, the latest pro wrestling game developed by Visual Concepts. 2K20 has become infamous since its release for the plethora of bugs and glitches players have captured and shared on social media. We gave it 2/10 in our review, saying, "This is the moment the WWE 2K series hit Rock Bottom."
In terms of DLC and expansions, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep reached number two in the charts for October. The latest annual expansion from Bungie added a new moon-based campaign, a new raid, a new dungeon, new multiplayer maps, new weapons, and so on, as well as reworking Destiny's armor system.
