Rare’s Sea of Thieves steals the number one position in the latest UK software chart.
The latest GFK Chart Track Top 40 Entertainment Software Chart sees four new games enter the top ten, with the top spot seized by Rare’s online pirate adventure, Sea of Thieves.
It’s a big achievement when you consider that the game was also launched day-and-date on Xbox Game Pass, and that digital sales on Xbox One and PC are not included.
The second highest new entry is Hazelight’s well-received prison break game, A Way Out, which just beats Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom into second place. However, according to figures from GfK Chart-Track, Bandai Namco’s JRPG was the second best performing game in terms of revenue. No big surprise when you remember that one of its special editions comes in at a tasty £140. Entering the chart in fourth place is Ubisoft’s remaster of last-gen’s Assassin’s Creed Rogue.
Elsewhere, the chart sees FIFA 18 drop two places to five, and last week’s number one, Burnout Paradise Remastered, fall to sixth.The much-hyped Nintendo 3DS Pokémon game, Detective Pikachu, only manages to chart at 23.
You can see the full UK software chart for the week ending March 24, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
