SIE Santa Monica’s God of War continues to top sales charts in the UK according to Gfk Chart-Track. The third action adventure earned rave reviews from critics and debuted in first place as the top-selling game in the region, with first week sales being 35 percent higher than that of God of War 3 on the PS3.
Far Cry 5 is still the best-selling game of the year though and continues its strong run at second place. A new entry at third place is Nintendo Labo Variety Kit with the Nintendo Labo Robot Kit in 20th place. FIFA 18 is in fourth place thanks to Ultimate Team’s Team of the Season events begin. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe meanwhile comes in at fifth place.
Fallout 4 is in sixth place, and given how the title released in November 2015, it’s interesting to see it putting up such numbers. It’s followed by Call of Duty: WW2, Super Mario Odyssey and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Speaking of old games that continue to reign, we have Grand Theft Auto 5 at tenth place. Keep in mind that it’s spent the majority of its weeks in the top 10 and first released in September 2013 for previous gen consoles.
