Knocking Uncharted 4 from the top spot, Overwatch debuted in first place and is Blizzard’s fastest-selling console title in the UK, moving 47% of copies on PlayStation 4, 36% on Xbox One, and 18% on PC.

The other two new releases last week, Total War: Warhammer and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, placed in 9th and 18th, respectively.

As for the rest of the chart, GfK Chart-Track says, “Only ¼ of the Top 40 lose sales this week as Half Term bundling and promotions give older titles a boost.”
