Despite a lack of reviews in the run up to release, For Honor has bagged Ubisoft their first UK no. 1 since Tom Clancy’s The Division.
It’s also the biggest new IP to head straight to no. 1 since No Man’s Sky. Chart Track informs sales were split 57% on PS4 and 43% on Xbox One.
Sniper Elite 4 had a good first week as well, arriving at #2 in the UK top 40. Like For Honor, it was also partly responsible for dethroning GTA V.
The evergreen crime caper falls to #3 this week, even though sales were up 7%. For those not aware, GTA V recently celebrated its 12th week at the top of the chart.
FIFA 17 held onto #4 while Battlefield 1 rose to #5. Then at #6 it’s RE7: Biohazard, down from #3.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare dropped to #7, Rocket League is at #8, Forza Horizon 3 shifted to #9 while Watch_Dogs 2 sits at #10 for another week.
Nioh – last week’s only new arrival – dropped to #12. This could be due to stock shortages.
Dragon Ball Fusions entered at #36 meanwhile, also claiming a somewhat more impressive #4 in the 3DS chart.
