A busy week in the UK video games chart sees FIFA 19 hold top spot, as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Forza Horizon 4 debut in the top five.

Despite a decline in year-on-year physical sales for the series, EA’s FIFA 19 remains at No.1 in the GfK Chart Track games chart for a second week. Entering at No.2 is Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which has also seen physical sales decline in the region of 25%.

Microsoft’s Xbox exclusive racer, Forza Horizon 4, debuts at No.3, an impressive performance considering the game is a single console release, and also available as part of Xbox Game Pass. Its success also provides a bump for last year’s Forza Motorsport 7, which re-enters the chart at No.12. Last week’s No.3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, falls to sixth place.


Elsewhere, Nintendo Switch exclusive, Super Mario Party, enters the chart at No.5, and two Bandai Namco-published games – Tekken 7 and Project Cars 2 – surge up the chart due to various sales promotions.

And further down the chart there are new entries for Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, and PS VR platformer, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, which enter at No.21 and No.22, respectively.

You can see the full UK games chart for the week ending October 6, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
