A whole bunch of digital sales data just came our way thanks to the folks at SuperData, so it’s time to break down where all the videogame money is getting spent. Spoilers: it’s China.
To no one’s great surprise, League of Legends was the top-grossing PC game in October, followed up by PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds at number two. The list is populated by plenty of titles massively popular in Asia, but it’s notable that Destiny 2 managed to clock in at number four amid all the free-to-play and more heavily microtransaction-supported games it stands alongside.
Grab yourself a victory royale with our top Fortnite Battle Royale tips.
Here are the full top ten on PC:
- League of Legends
- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
- Fantasy Westward Journey Online II
- Destiny 2
- Dungeon Fighter Online
- World of Warcraft
- World of Tanks
- Middle-earth: Shadow of War
“Premium PC” purchases got a 28% bump in October thanks to Destiny 2 and the continued growth of PUBG. Single-player games like South Park: The Fractured but Whole, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Assassin’s Creed Origins managed to do quite well, generating a combined $160 million in digital sales.
The one big shocker in all this is the fact that Fortnite has managed to outdo PUBG in terms of monthly active users for October. Obviously, Epic’s game has the advantage of being on multiple platforms and it has a free-to-play component, but it’s still astounding to see pretty much any game outdoing PUBG’s success by any metric.
