Motorsport simulation F1 2018 remains at the top of the UK video games chart for a second week.

The UK video games chart sees three new games enter the top ten, but none can knock Codemasters’ well-received F1 2018 from the top spot.

The closest challenger is Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, which enters at No.2. Despite an improved chart position on last year’s edition, GFK Chart Track say the game has sold 42% fewer units in its first week. The ever-popular Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy drops one place to fourth.

Elsewhere in the top ten, Sega’s Yakuza Kiwami 2 enters the chart at No.5, and the Nintendo Switch action RPG, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, debuts at No.9.

Other new entries further down the chart include PSVR shooter, Firewall Zero Hour, at No.11, and there’s a disappointing debut for Rebillion’s multiplayer adventure shooter, Strange Brigade, which lands at No.16.

Larian Studio’s epic RPG, Divinity Original Sin II, enters the chart at No.23 off the back of its Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release.

You can see the full UK software chart for the week ending September 1, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
