FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice slices its way to the top of the UK video game chart.
The Activision-published action game takes top spot in the latest Ukie Games Chart from GfK. The chart – which measures sales of boxed software in the UK – sees last week’s No.1, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, drop into second place.
Elsewhere, Red Dead Redemption 2 drops three places to No.5, and is outperformed by Grand Theft Auto V, which climbs to No.4.
Devil May Cry 5 drops out of the Top Ten, landing at No.16, and EA’s trouble online shooter, Anthem, falls four places to No.15.
There are no other new entries in the Top 40, although several PS VR games – Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, PlayStation VR Worlds, Doom VFR, and Skyrim VR – all return to the chart following retail promotions.

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.
