Last week Horzion Zero Dawn became 2017’s fastest selling title so far. Seven days later, that record has already been snatched away: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands had an impressively strong launch, topping the UK chart in the process.

Chart-Track reports that it’s the second fastest Tom Clancy title after The Division, beating Future Soldier’s week one sales.


Horzion Zero Dawn dropped to #2 – with sales down 60% over launch week – while the budget-priced LEGO Worlds debuted at #3. We spent some time with TT’s take on Minecraft over the weekend and were left impressed. It’s playful and innovative, complete with a cheeky nod to Puggsy – one of TT’s first games.

Zelda: The Breath of the Wild fell to #4 during its second week, with sales down 70%. Considering copies are allegedly hard to find, especially on Wii U, that’s still a placing for Nintendo to be proud of.

GTA V is still hanging around, this week at #5. Then at #6 it’s the very well-received NieR: Automata. We had to visit three different branches of GAME to find a copy, suggesting demand was higher than expected.

FIFA 17 and Rocket League occupy #7 and #8. Switch launch title 1-2-Switch sits at #9 while Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sees us out at #10.

Bomberman R meanwhile dropped from #7 to #21.

The 3DS’ Mario Sports Superstars was the only other new arrival in the top 40, dribbling in at #37.
