Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has bagged the prestigious Christmas no.1 slot. Not only is it the first time an Assassinâ€™s Creed title has topped the festive chart, but itâ€™s also Ubisoftâ€™s first ever Xmas no.1. These truly are unprecedented times.
Thanks to price cuts Immortals: Fenyx Rising and Watch Dogs Legion climbed the chart too, both available for around Â£30 currently. Immortals soared to #12; Legion took #14.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War held onto #2 while the controversial Cyberpunk 2077 – last weekâ€™s chart topper – fell to #3. CD Projekt’s RPG was pulled from PSN on Friday – the only way for PlayStation owners to â€˜experienceâ€™ it currently is to purchase the physical release.
Although Cyberpunk 2077 did drop two places it was still able to fend off FIFA 21 â€“ a former contender for festive no.1. EA’s sports sim now sits at #4.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons fell this week too, going from #3 to #5.
Sonyâ€™s Spider-Man: Miles Morales climbed to #6, also benefitting from a minor price cut.
Nintendo then controls the rest of the Christmas top ten with the evergreen Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at #7, Just Dance 2020 at #8, Ring Fit Adventure returning at #9 (up from #16), and Super Mario 3D All-Stars at #10.
