Especially if we factor in digital sales, Aliens: Fireteam Elite can likely be considered a success â€“ itâ€™s the UKâ€™s no.1 this week, taking over from Sony’s Ghost of Tshushima: Directorâ€™s Cut.
No More Heroes III settles for #16. The Switch top 20 paints a slightly rosier picture, where the boss rush hack â€˜n slasher debuts at #5.
The sleeper hit Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 re-surfaces at #31 in the all-formats top 40 too, thanks to the new PS5 release.
The rest of the top ten merely sees a shuffle. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft and GTA V rise to claim #2, #3 and #4. Spider-Man: Miles Morales falls to #5, down from #3.
FIFA 21 â€“ which was heavily reduced at retail last week â€“ rises to #6. Animal Crossing: New Horizons moves up to #7, Marvelâ€™s Avengers re-enters the top ten at #8, last weekâ€™s chart-topper Ghost of Tsushima: Directorâ€™s Cut falls to #9, and then at #10 itâ€™s the return of The Last of Us Part II.
Tokyo 2020 The Official Video Game departs the top ten, meanwhile, falling to #15.
