Even a price drop to £20-£25 and an impending free World Cup update couldn’t help FIFA 18 dislodge God of War from the top of the UK chart.
Sony’s PS4-exclusive juggernaut celebrates a fifth consecutive week. Just one more week at no.1 will put it on par with The Last of Us, which held no.1 for six weeks in 2013.
It’ll be up against stiff competition though. Detroit: Become Human, Dark Souls Remastered, and State of Decay 2 all launch this week.
FIFA 18 rises two places to take #2. Curiously, it remains at #2 in the PS4 chart for the second week but rises all the way from #16 to #2 in the Xbox One chart.
Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition enters at #3, the same position as the Wii U version managed in 2014. It outperformed the 2016 3DS iteration, but not the Wii U version, which still boasts the strongest launch.
Fellow Wii U conversion Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is still hanging around too, now at #4.
Far Cry 5 falls to #5 and is followed by the usual top ten stalwarts: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, AC Origins, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, GTA V, and finally Call of Duty: WWII at #10.
Lower down in the top 40 a couple of new titles make their debut. Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux on 3DS took #31 – while topping the 3DS chart – and the PS4’s Dragon Crown Pro made #33.
Then over in the Switch chart Battlechasers: Nightwar entered at #12 while Little Nightmares: Complete Edition snuck in at #13.
