Forza Horizon 5 crosses the line at No.4 | UK Boxed Charts

Xbox's critically acclaimed Forza Horizon 5 was the fourth best-selling game at UK games retail last week.

Its launch boxed sales are down 80% over the previous game -- 2018's Forza Horizon 4 -- but with digital and Game Pass, that won't be the case. Xbox has already announced that it is its biggest game launch in history (worldwide), with 4.5 million players. The digital games data will arrive later in the week.

I'm surprised its 4th, considering thats not counting digital & Gamepass which is huge for Xbox.

Tbh, even with GP subs you would think forza across cloud, PC, xbox one/s and series S/X forza still would chart number 1 with digital and physical sales?

I think it's because the standard version is the only physical copy they put out. If you wanted more, it's digital only.

dumahim62d ago

Not sure what's up with the downvotes. Standard version is the only version available with a physical copy.

"If you want to buy Forza Horizon 5 as a physical disc, you'll be limited to Forza Horizon 5 Standard Edition, which only offers the base game."

This is simply boxed, UK sales, for Xbox only

I don't know why the downvotes. That's actually not counting digital or gamepass at all.

Some are just angry I suppose.

I think it's more the fact that it applies to everything on the list. It's pointless to mention because all the titles in the list are counted the exact same way, just boxed

It's surprising because it feels (and looks) like a rehash of the previous title. It's amazing that it has climbed as high as it has, to be honest.

So what you are really saying is the Mexican vistas and the English countrysides are indistinguishable.... got it.

theindiearmy62d ago

Crazy to think that a lot of people who liked a game, want a very similar new game to enjoy three years later. Absolutely mad men over there at Microsoft.

Some parts of it, yeah. I was spending time in an area yesterday and I noticed how it looked just like a section from the previous game. It isn't all that surprising really. Kind of hard to distinguish grassy countryside and trees with a road going through it.

At least we aren't driving around Trial Mountain for the 10th time

Funny how people will accept mediocrity. Glad you're having fun with it, though.

Yeah.
Virtually every reviewer had, as well as the million that preordered the game, and the millions buying/playing it after the fact need to remember it's nothing special when goty awards come around.

We can't be giving awards to low effort cash grabs like Forza Horizon 5.

TheColbertinator62d ago

Forza Horizon continues to be a key seller for racers. Helps to distinguish the industry as healthy when the top games aren't shooters or 3rd person action games.

Couldn't sell more than Animal Crossing? Welp.
