Even though Microsoft heavily pushed Sea of Thieves as a reason to join Xbox Game Pass, the game’s physical release has still managed to claim the UK chartâ€™s top spot.
It was up against strong competition, too. EAâ€™s co-op crime caper A Way Out debuted at #2, while Ni No Kuni II took #3. The colourful JRPG generated more revenue than A Way Out, however, due to the popularity of the Â£139.99 Kingâ€™s Edition.
Assassinâ€™s Creed Rogue Remastered took #4. Thatâ€™s two places higher than the original version managed back in November 2014, although it was up against the multi-format Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
FIFA 18 rounds off this weekâ€™s top five. Interestingly, Chart-Track notes that Mass Effect Andromeda â€“ which claimed no.1 this time last year â€“ had a better week one than the top six titles this week.
At #6 we find last weekâ€™s chart-topper â€“ Burnout Paradise Remastered.
GTA V dropped three places to #7, while EA Sports UFC 3 â€“ EAâ€™s fourth game in the top ten â€“ held onto #8.
Positions #9, #10 and #11 are then held by Nintendo with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Kirby Star Allies, respectively.
Anime tie-in Attack on Titan 2 made #17. Detective Pikachu checked in at #23, while also managing to top the 3DS chart.
THQâ€™s re-release of Titan Quest didnâ€™t get a look-in, failing to even make the individual format charts. Perhaps the belated Switch release will fare better.
