The UK sales chart for last week were made available today, and Call of Duty continues its run of dominance as Call of Duty: WWII is once again the top selling game of the week. FIFA 18 takes a drop to third as Star Wars Battlefront II manages to sneak into second place despite the controversy surrounding the game.
Rounding the top 5 for the week was the Pokemon series, with Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon coming in 4th and 5th place, respectively. Assassin’s Creed Origins (#6) continues to sell very well, and L.A. Noire Remastered (#8) did enough to crack into the top 10. What’s most surprising, however, is PlayStation VR Worlds making it into the top 20. That likely has a lot to do with the recent trend of PlayStation VR sales, as well as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR (#19) selling so well.

For more on the new sales leader, make sure to check out our Call of Duty: WWII review:
World War II was the right move. Call of Duty reaches back to its roots to bring players an entry worthy of the series’ namesake. The campaign is emotional, multiplayer is classic, and Nazi Zombies is downright dark and terrifying. No matter which kind of player you are, there is something for everyone, whether it’s a cinematic story, a competitive and social multiplayer, or an immensely difficult battle against undead Nazis. Call of Duty: WWII is another incredible package of experiences, each distinct from the others, but tied together by the unifying themes of World War II that deserve your attention.
