October was a big month for video games in terms of releases. It saw new titles like Far Cry 6, Back 4 Blood, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and more hit the market. It’s no surprise that many of these debuts lead PlayStation’s top downloads for the month of October, either.
PlayStation released the top October downloads for its multiple platforms today and at the number one spot in the United States and Canada is Far Cry 6, followed by FIFA 22 in second, and Back 4 Blood in third. On the EU side of things, it’s a touch different: to nobody’s surprise, FIFA 22 was the top download with Far Cry 6 in second and Back 4 Blood in third.
Here are the top 20 October downloads for PS5 in the U.S. and Canada:
Far Cry 6
Back 4 Blood
Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
Madden NFL 22
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Alan Wake Remastered
The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Diablo II: Resurrected
Hot Wheels Unleashed
Mortal Kombat 11
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
As you can see in the list above, much of it is made up of new titles released in October or some titles released late in September, such as Kena: Bridge of Spirits, which launched on the 21st of that month. Also of note, titles like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy arrived near the end of October so there’s a good chance some of these titles might appear in the November top downloads list as well.
The EU top 20 is largely the same, although a few surprises are in there such as Alan Wake Remastered sitting significantly higher at the sixth spot, and the inclusion of Resident Evil Village and Rainbox Six Siege on the list.
For more information, you can check out the top 20 PS4 downloads as well as the top 20 PSVR downloads (which features Beat Saber at the top spot, likely due to its new multiplayer mode).
