Darksiders III fails to light up the UK video games chart

Darksiders III flops into the lower reaches of the UK video games chart, as FIFA 19 holds on to top spot.

Darksiders 3 - Fury

Darksiders III flops into the lower reaches of the UK video games chart, as FIFA 19 holds on to top spot.

The latest GFK Chart Track software top 40 – which tracks physical video game sales in the UK – shows a disappointing debut for THQ Nordic’s Darksiders III. It’s a shame, although not a major surprise, to see Gunfire’s action adventure enter the chart at a lowly No.32.

Launching so soon after Red Dead Redemption 2 – which climbs one place to No. 2 – was probably a contributory factor, as were the game’s lukewarm reviews.

Elsewhere in the chart, FIFA 19 remains at No.1 for a second consecutive week, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 swaps places with Rockstar’s ambitious Western at No. 3.

Nintendo Switch exclusives Pokémon Let’s Go: Pikachu and Eevee continue to perform well, although players evidently prefer electric rats to rabbit cats, with the Pikachu edition climbing to No. 7, and poor Eevee a full ten places behind.

Bethesda’s much maligned Fallout 76 falls out of the top 10 to No.11, and another underperforming game – on physical formats at least –  Hitman 2, re-enters the chart at No.33.

You can read the the full chart for the week ending December 1, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
