Guardians of the Galaxy is another example of how Game Pass can boost the audience interest. Thanks to its addition to the library, the title has climbed more than 200 places in the chart of the most popular Xbox games.
According to TrueAchievements’ Xbox Gameplay Chart, Guardians of the Galaxy made its first appearance in the top 40 since its launch on October 26, 2021.
The chart takes gameplay data from more than two million Xbox players across the globe and compiles weekly charts every Monday.
In the latest chart for a week ending March 13, Fortnite was still the number one game on Xbox by playtime. Elden Ring remained in second place, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Apex Legends, and GTA V still being in the top 5.
Guardians of the Galaxy placed 12th, all thanks to its recent addition to the Game Pass library. These are impressive results, considering that the game has never been even in the top 200 since its launch.
Eidos Montreal-developed title was met with positive reviews from critics, but its launch sales were lackluster due to a flawed marketing campaign by Square Enix. However, Game Pass might really help Guardians of the Galaxy attract an engaged audience.
