Star Wars Jedi Survivor force jumps up the top 40 PS5 games chart

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,

Star Wars Jedi Survivor has made waves in the most popular PS5 and PS4 games this week as it makes a forceful debut.

We know you are all force-pulling those Star Wars Jedi Survivor trophies into your collection — the PS5-only action game has had a huge debut amongst the most popular PS5 and PS4 games this week. While we are yet to see if it lands in the best PS5 games list, it certainly won't be short of players.

With some slight movement at the top of the chart as FIFA 23 moves above Fortnite into second place, the top ten has been more significantly changed by the debut of Star Wars Jedi Survivor in eighth. The latest Star Wars game is only on PS5, thus lowering the potential player base significantly, and had only been on the market since April 28th, 2023, giving it only 48 hours to make an impact on the chart — and boy has it. In a hotly contested top ten, there is only a 1% difference between Survivor and Resident Evil 4's total player count in seventh. Expect a big leap again next week for Star Wars Jedi Survivor.

As for some of the other new releases, we have everyone back collecting Horizon Forbidden West trophies thanks to the new Burning Shores DLC. Indeed, our Horizon Burning Shores review is live on the site and spells out what we think of this short pack of surprisingly essential new story content. The DLC release boosted the game to seventh last week, but the game has now slipped down to tenth this week. Seeing that kind of success for an expansion of an existing game is still very impression, and it shows just how supportive PlayStation users are for first-party titles.

The other new release comes with zombies, axes, and Dead Island 2 trophies. Sean loved it in his Dead Island 2 first impressions and it looks like that feeling is felt by all the players jumping headfirst into guts and gore to bump it up two places to 12th this week. Great stuff! Also debuting lower down on the chart is Monster Hunter Rise in 37th thanks to the Sunbreak expansion, with Warframe just above it in 36th, re-entering the chart for the millionth time.

Well, that wraps up the analysis. What do you think of Star Wars Jedi Survivor's debut? Are you expecting another jump-up next week? Let us know in the comments. Here are the top 40 PS5 and PS4 games on the PlayStation Chart for the week ending April 30th, 2023.
