Ubisoft’s multiplayer slasher staves off tough competition.
Even with competition from Microsoft’s Halo Wars 2, Ubisoft’s For Honor managed to maintain its number 1 position on UK game charts according to Gfk Chart-Track.
Halo Wars 2 still debuted fairly strong in second place with Grand Theft Auto 5 in third place and in no position to ever leave the UK top ten. It’s followed by FIFA 17, another long-standing placeholder that’s held the top spot several times since releasing in September 2016. Sniper Elite 4 fell from second place to fifth.
The rest of the top ten is full of the usual suspects. Battlefield 1 is in sixth place, Rocket League is in seventh and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is in eighth. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Forza Horizon 3 round out the top ten for this week.
Despite For Honor’s popularity, it could eventually be overcome by Horizon: Zero Dawn which releases on March 1st for Europe (February 28th for North America). Tune in next week to see how eventually wins and let us know your thoughts below.
