UK June 2018 Charts: FIFA 18 Reigns, God of War in 2nd

A free update and the World Cup helped sales surge for EA Sports' football sim.

Posted By | On 06th, Jul. 2018

June was a big month for gaming, thanks in no small part to E3 2018. However, it was a big month in the UK as well, as games like FIFA 18 and God of War battled for supremacy. In the end though, it was EA Sports’ title that came out on top, thanks to the recent free World Cup update as revealed by GFK/UKIE (via MCVUK).

The fact that the update arrived on May 29th while the World Cup took place in mid-June also helped with sales being up 67 per cent month-on-month. The Xbox One version saw sales increase by 203 per cent month-on-month. God of War was in second place and only saw a 30 per cent decrease in sales month-on-month.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy made it to third place thanks to a multiplatform re-release. The PS4 version even saw an increase in sales month-on-month by 16 per cent. Detroit: Become Human came in fourth place, followed by Far Cry 5 and Fallout 4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe scored seventh, as Mario Tennis Aces came in at eighth place. Vampyr and Grand Theft Auto 5 rounded out the June 2018 best-sellers chart for the UK.
