Fallout 4 jumps to number one across Europe following the launch of the TV show

Fallout 4 jumps to number one across Europe following the launch of the TV show

Fallout game sales have risen across Europe, with Fallout 4 reclaiming the top spot.

Sales of the 2015 game rose by more than 7,500% weekly across Europe. This is GSD data that tracks digital game sales across all European markets, and physical sales in all major European countries (including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain).

This is due to some major discounts on games in the Fallout series across all platforms. It's all designed to tie in with the Fallout TV show, which has been a smash hit on Amazon Prime.

The majority of Fallout 4 sales this week were on PC, representing 69% of total sales, and the rest on PlayStation and Xbox. However, it's worth noting that the game is available for free to Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers (this data is not included here). It's also available for Amazon Luna users.

Meanwhile, Fallout 76 comes in eighth, with 85% of sales on PC (again, the game is available on Game Pass and PS Plus). Fallout: New Vegas is in ninth place, and Fallout 3 is in tenth place.

At the bottom of the charts, Fallout Classic Collection reached #43, Fallout 2 at #57, and Fallout at #70.

With the Fallout TV series continuing to become popular this week, gaming is expected to continue for some time to come.
