Call of Duty: WW2 has topped the UK physical game sales chart once again, which means that it’s just one week away from matching the last sales record set by a Call of Duty game.
Call of Duty: WW2 has been at the top of the sales chart for 10 weeks in a row now except last week when GTA 5 surprisingly took the top. If not that, one more week will bring Call of Duty: WW2 equal to the record set by Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for the most number of weeks a Call of Duty game has held the number one spot for. The game is already equal for the most weeks in a row a Call of Duty game has spent in number one, but FIFA 18 stopped it short of breaking that record.
FIFA 18 is in second place this week, with Rockstar Games’ GTA 5 following in third. Two Nintendo titles make up the latter half of the top five games this week with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition in fourth, and game of the year 2017 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in fifth.
Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is at sixth this week, aided no doubt by the recent update implemented by the developers as well as sales from Xbox One X console sales. Assassin’s Creed: Origin’s follows closely in seventh. Fans of the series are eager to finish the game’s core story before the first official DLC releases on January 23rd, The Hidden Ones. The DLC explores more of the lore of the Assassin’s, linking Origins with earlier games in the series such as Assassin’s Creed 2.
Super Mario Odyssey is in eighth this week, not surprising considering that even though most Nintendo Switch owners have a copy of the game there are still those just buying it now for the free DLC coming soon. The new content adds Luigi to the game, a new world built around him, and a new game mode made for co-op.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 continues to sell well in ninth position as the second favourite shooter of 2017. Despite the loot box complaints the game seems to be selling reasonably well as the second shooter EA has in the chart.
Finally a new entry in at tenth position this week is Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory from Bandai Namco, exclusive to Playstation 4.
