Assassin’s Creed III Climbs its Way to Number One in the UK

November 5, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

To no one’s surprise, Ubisoft’s latest entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise did incredibly well in the UK, debuting in the top spot.

The week prior, Danger Close’s Medal of Honor: Warfighter opened at number one, but has since dropped all the way down to sixth place. Perhaps the public caught on to the fact that it’s not a very good game?

FIFA 13 is holding strong in second place, with WWE ’13 and Football Manager 2013 right behind in third and fourth, respectively. Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted managed to race its way to fifth place on its opening week.
