Days Gone comes out top against Mortal Kombat 11 in the battle for No.1 in the UK video games chart.
It seems players can’t get enough of zombie games. Sony Bend’s open world action game, Days Gone, has claimed No.1 in the latest GfK entertainment Top 40, the chart that measures sales of retail games in the United Kingdom.
The game’s performance is particularly impressive in the face of middling review scores, PS4 exclusivity, and stiff competition from NetherRealm’s multi-platform fighter, Mortal Kombat 11. The return of Sub-Zero and friends enters the chart at No.2. Last week’s chart-topper, World War Z, falls to No.10.
The rest of the Top Ten sees a slight shuffle of games and a re-entry for acclaimed Xbox One racer, Forza Horizon 4.
Further down the chart there’s a reappearance for Metro Exodus at No.14, and a clutch of Lego games boosted by retail discounts.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
