FIFA 19 scores at launch on top of EMEAA charts

Forza Horizon 4 launch just misses capturing Spider-Man

PC and Xbox-exclusive Forza Horizon 4 didn't have too shabby a launch across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia in the latest GSD EMEAA charts. Of course, Playground's more laidback racing game was still outstripped by the launch of FIFA 19, which took the top spot in the region last week.

It was also beaten by Spider-Man, which has been on a high since its launch last month and only just now dipped to #2. But Forza did manage to take Shadow of the Tomb Raider down two pegs, and hold the ever-popular Grand Theft Auto V to #5, where it remains strong and sturdy just a few weeks past its fifth anniversary.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Dragon Ball FigherZ both saw a return to the Top 10 this week, the former elevated mostly by PC purchases likely driven by recent Steam sale, and the latter coming off a game update that added Android 17 as a playable fighter and various Halloween goodies.

Here is the combined physical/digital chart for the EMEAA region for the week ending September 30th:
