Proving that a new instalment was long overdue, WipEout: The Omega Collection has topped the UK chart. Amazingly, it’s the first in the series to do so – the 1995 PS1 original only made it to #5.

Codemasters’ DiRT 4 is off to a good start too, arriving at #3.

The third – and final – new entry for this week is The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind at #9.

Incidentally, Bethesda’s own Dishonored 2 is also back in the top ten, at 10, while both DOOM and Fallout 4 re-entered at #17 and #18 respectively due to price cuts.

Prey had a rough week, however, dropping from #6 to #15.

Going back to the top ten, Tekken 7 dropped to #2 after debuting at no.1.

Horizon Zero Dawn rose to #4 thanks to a long-awaited price drop, GTA V remains at #5, Overwatch is at #6, FIFA 17 fell to #7 while Injustice 2 dropped a few places to #8.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands dropping from #7 to #21 is also noteworthy.

Being a Bethesda-published title and all, we didn’t expect to see reviews of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind prior to release. It so transpires critics received ample time to play it, with a handful of reviews available online in time for yesterday’s launch.

IGN found it to be a neat nostalgic trip, awarding it an 8.0. “The addition of the Warden class gives new and returning players alike a fresh and versatile way to play through the 25 hours of content” they claimed.

PC World (not that one) enjoyed it too. “For anyone who played The Elder Scrolls III, who yearns for Morrowind and the island of Vvardenfell, being able to revisit even the shadow of those memories is a treat,” they beamed.

We also have a double-dose of two very different racers – the less-than-full-price WipEout: Omega Collection, and Codemasters’ DiRT 4.

Wipeout

Many had concerns about WipEout, being a mere amalgamation of WipEout HD and 2084 by a little-known developer (Clever Beans Ltd), but the Manchester-based studio has delivered the goods. The Metacritic currently stands 85%, with scores including an 8/10 from The Metro and 9/10s from both GameSpot and God is a Geek. It also gained Eurogamer’s ‘Recommended’ badge: “There may well be other, better futuristic racers out there – but there are none that can boast this much style.”
