Xbox Gameplay Chart: Minecraft Dungeons rockets into the top five

The usual giants lead this week’s Xbox Gameplay Chart, with Modern Warfare, Fortnite, and Grand Theft Auto V at numbers 1, 2, and 3 respectively. Yet this week also sees Minecraft Dungeons jump 32 places — a colossal leap for a game that hasn’t yet been out a full week — before landing in the top 5 and replacing Minecraft itself at no 4. Minecraft, which is never usually shaken by any new additions, has now been relegated to no. 5, with a lot of reshuffling down the rest of the chart as other titles make way for the new addition.

Here is the top 40 Xbox Gameplay Chart for the week ending 31 May 2020.

Minecraft Dungeons seems to be popular across the board. Sean loved it, and rated it a 4/5 in his Minecraft Dungeons review, with the TA community rating it similarly at 4.03/5. There’s already details on the first Minecraft Dungeons DLC: Jungle Awakens will launch in July.

Further down the chart, Dead by Daylight has jumped up by five places to no. 23. The game gets a Silent Hill crossover on the 16th of June, with a new killer, map, and survivor, so it’s likely we’ll see Dead by Daylight hop a little further up the chart. Mortal Kombat 11 has also taken a sizeable leap from no. 37 to no. 25, most likely thanks to its newest story expansion, Mortal Kombat Aftermath.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey tends to jump around on our chart, disappearing and reappearing every now and then. The interest from Ubisoft’s announcement of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, plus the Assassin’s Creed franchise’s frequent appearance on Xbox sales, leads to the occasional surge of new interest. This week, however, sees Odyssey begin to fall again, from no. 26 to no. 30. Fallout 76 has also taken a sizeable hit, dropping from no. 29 to no. 35, despite its latest in-game events. The most recent of these, the Fasnacht event, had some issues at launch which required Bethesda to take it out of the game while they worked on a fix. It’s back up now and will run for an extra week, with Bethesda also promising to make a bundle of items available for free in the Atomic Shop starting from June 2nd.

Minecraft (Win 10) appears at no. 40, just underneath Terraria, which has itself fallen from no. 32 to no. 39, while this week’s disappearance is Battlefield V. Although Minecraft Dungeons was the biggest release for May, there’s still a number of titles or DLC expansions coming up in June which could shake up our Xbox Gameplay Chart. June sees the release of the Greymoor DLC arrives for The Elder Scrolls Online next week, as well as Beyond Blue, Desperados III, and the first DLC for Control later in the month.

Would be nice to find a few other GRG members who are playing Minecraft Dungeons.
