Ubisoft’s The Division 2 stays at the top of the UK video games chart in a quiet week for new entries.

There’s not much to report from this week’s UK video games chart from Ukie and GfK. Ubisoft online shooter, The Division 2, sits pretty at No.1 for a second consecutive week, with FIFA 19 also holding steady in second spot.

Nintendo Switch mascot racer, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, moves up one position to No.4, overtaking previous chart-topper, Yoshi’s Crafted World, which drops to fifth. FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice shows some staying power, falling just two places to No.7.


Elsewhere, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Marvel’s Spider-Man both benefit from various price promotions and re-enter the Top Ten at No.6 and No.10 respectively.

Further down the chart the only new entry is Three Field Entertainment’s spiritual sequel to the Burnout series, Dangerous Driving.

Nintendo’s latest batch of Labo sets – Toy Con 04: VR Kit and Toy Con 04: VR Kit Starter Set & Blaster – sit just outside the Top Forty. Had there only been one SKU, it would have very likely charted.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
