World War Z climbs to the top of the chart

In what was likely a quiet week for physical UK game sales, the incredibly belated movie tie-in World War Z had no trouble claiming no.1 in the all-formats top 40.

Publisher Focus Interactive must be pleased as punch, as it also managed to top both the PS4 and Xbox One charts. It’s not often we see a Focus-published title at no.1 – their last was Dontnod’s Vampyr, back in July 2018. In fact, that was their first ever UK no.1

FIFA 19 held onto #2, The Division 2 – last week’s chart topper – fell to #3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remained at #4 while RDR2 dropped two places to #5.

A price drop to around £20 has helped Assassin’s Creed Odyssey hold onto #6.

Switch exclusive Yoshi’s Crafted World moved down to #7, while Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice fell one position to #8.

At #9 it’s another new entry – the quintessentially British Snooker 19: The Official Video Game, which also took #6 in the Xbox chart and #8 in the PS4 chart.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe rounds off the top ten at #10.

World War Z and Snooker 19 weren’t the only new arrivals – Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster took #20 while Team 17’s My Time at Portia sailed in at #27.
