Darksiders III fails to set UK chart ablaze

THQ Nordic may have picked a quiet week to launch Darksiders III, but that hasn’t helped it to fly off shelves – the long-awaited follow up enters the UK top 40 at a miserable #32.

There is a chance that the digital version has picked up some slack, however, as the Fury Edition featured all three titles at an alluringly low price.

RIDE 3 also had a rough first week, failing to even make the PS4 and Xbox One top 20 charts, let alone the multiformat top 40.

Following on from last week’s Black Friday shake-up, the UK top five sees only a slight shuffle. FIFA 19 remains no.1 for a second week running, RDR2 climbs to #2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 moves down to #3, while Battlefield V and Forza Horizon 4 hold onto #4 and #5.

At #6 – up from #9 – it’s Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Nintendo’s Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu is also on the rise, now at #7.

The remaining positions are mostly occupied by top ten re-entries: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at #8 (was #11), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at #9, and the Fortnite Deep Freeze Bundle at #10 (was #12).

Fallout 76, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Marvel’s Spider-Man all departed the top ten, meanwhile, with the friendly neighbourhood superhero falling the furthest to #16.
