FIFA 22, Fortnite, Elden Ring, Call of Duty, and Apex Legends might dominate the most-played PS5 and PS4 games this week, but Destiny 2 has found some form along with a new Ubisoft game.

Destiny 2's new Season of the Haunted started last week drawing in plenty of players, as has Ubisoft's new attempt at capturing the digital sports market with Roller Champions. Here is the top 40 PlayStation Gameplay charts for the week ending May 29th, 2022.

New week, same top five! Let's just save ourselves the time and not talk about any of them, all good with that? Great. Instead, the interesting top ten tussle is Destiny 2 hitting hard by rising to seventh. It's new Season of the Haunted is pushing up the player count by 33.7% in total or an increase of 40.6% on last week. Bungie's live-service game has an impressive ability to keep pulling players back in with every content drop. Arguably more impressive is that there are two PS5 players to every one PS4 player, meaning that this is another 'last-gen game' that has successfully made the switch to current-gen, no problem.

This rise comes at the cost of Horizon Forbidden West, which falls one position to tenth. However, don't be foolish and think that Horizon is dropping in player count, as it has actually had a 1.8% total increase in the player count since last week. The same goes for Gran Turismo 7 in steady 8th, which has had a 17.2% total player base growth since last week. In this case, it simply means that Destiny 2, as you can see, gained more players week-on-week than these two, while Rocket League's player count remained fairly static.

A big winner, against all odds, has to be Ubisoft's Roller Champions in 20th. It's not a massive entry to the list like Yu-Gi-Oh a few months ago, but considering we had to relearn what the game was was when the Roller Champions trophies dropped last Friday, we think this is an impressive feat. As always with this live-service game, the real success won't be its entry, but rather how long it says in the upper ends of the list.

At the bottom of the list, we have seen four resurging games. We have Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales in 35th, Brawlhalla in 36th, Mortal Kombat 11 in 37th, and Astro's Playroom in 38th. Both Miles and Astro are signs that the PS5 has been picking up big sales numbers, by the way: so keep an eye out. These games have caused the death of Evil Dead: The Game which now rests in 47th place.

What do you think of the list this week? As always, any questions can be left down below for one of the TT team to answer. See you there!
